As soon as the iPad was announced our office broke out laughing in a moment of grade school humor. Either this was created by a group of daughterless men who don't know that the word pad is inextricably linked to menstruation for most women or they thought the power of Apple branding would override this basic human truth. Either way, Twitter is filling up with period jokes while people in Boston are wondering how to differentiate talking about their iPod and their iPad.

Turns out MadTV beat us to the punch. Fox's now-defunct sketch comedy show, made this fake ad years ago for the "iPad"--a menstruation device that hooks to your computer. Apple probably should have Googled "iPad" before going with this name.
