Good morning, everyone. How about Apple's iPad announcement? The Internet on Wednesday was beside itself with jokes about feminine products, and Monica Hesse offers a few of her own:
Boyfriends everywhere promptly refuse to purchase it unless they could simultaneously buy some really manly products, like shaving cream and batteries.
Are You There God? It's Me, Steve Jobs.
Apple has yet to address what women everywhere anticipate will obviously be the iPad's biggest problem: You can't use one while swimming.
Elsewhere in today's news:
Jay Leno heads over to Oprah Winfrey's couch today for an interview that Lisa de Moraes calls "the first Station of the Cross on his road to redemption." It won't air in Washington until 4 p.m., but Leno will tell Winfrey that Conan O'Brien's recent jokes about him hurt -- "But you're a fighter. That's what you do."
DAR Constitution Hall wasn't sold out for last night's Mariah Carey concert, Chris Richards reports, another sign of "how this wretched economy can transform yesterday's invincible uber-star into today's latest music-biz casualty."
Scott Brown's daughter, Ayla, has an EP out -- just in time for her dad's pending swearing-in as Massachusetts's next junior senator.
The Filipino prisoners whose choreographed dancing to "Thriller" hit YouTube over the summer are back. This time, Michael Jackson's former choreographer went to the high security facility and taught the inmates the routine for "They Don't Really Care About Us." Of course, product placement for the posthumous Jackson film "This Is It" runs high: all the dancers are wearing T-shirts advertising the movie. Still: captivating.
