Apple unveiled its much ballyhooed new gizmo today: their tablet, the Apple iPad, a $499 toy with a 9.7 inch LED back-lit touchpad screen that will allow you to surf the web, read a book, watch a movie, and do basically everything an iPhone or Macbook can already do.

Of course, we're not here to talk tech; we're here to be ridiculous. So below, a roundup of our favorite iPad parodies, mock-ups and general Photoshops.
