Apple Releases Something

CUPERTINO, CA — Computer giant Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) revealed an electronic device that is as sexy as it is pricey – and includes one new killer, must-have feature: the power to assuage liberal guilt. Indeed, when started for the first time, the device asks users to sign a petition decrying every aspect of the way it was built and sold.

The device, the iSomething, is expected to hit store shelves later this year and retail for $329, a remarkably affordable asking price considering the irreparable emotional and physical damage inflicted upon the poor Chinaman who built it.

    Necrophilia is clearly the lesser evil when compared to a state of the union address. Of course, were it not for Nader's iPad screwing up, Barry'd have had some porn he coulda used instead of the real thing.
