Her hats have always been striking. Especially lately, when she's had her hats refashioned to include a slot for her iPad.

Palace insiders say that the Queen has been quite impressed with the interest generated by granddaughter Princess Beatrice and her unusual hats. The Queen points out, "If Beatrice can wear a toilet seat motif on her head and then sell the hat for an enormous sum for charity, why can't I wear an iPad on my head? At least I'm technologically correct."

Interestingly, many iPad owners worldwide are following the Queen's "royal storage" example, now choosing to carry their iPads right on their heads. "It's quite convenient," reported one iPad owner, "I'd never leave home without my hat, and now I never leave home without my iPad either. Perfect!"

Apple Inc. has climbed on the bandwagon, pointing out that owners choosing the hat option are spared the expense of iPad covers and/or carrying cases. Criminals should be warned, however, not to see this option as an invitation to steal, as the Spider-Man app on the iPad can immediately detect a theft, causing Spider-Man to spring into action and snare the perp in a gigantic and powerful web.

Ida iPad, head of the iPad labor union, isn't at all pleased with the news about the hat option for iPads, dismissing it as "unseemly and undignified." She continued, "This definitely discriminates against men. What are male iPad owners who don't wear hats supposed to do with their iPads?"

An Apple spokesperson, a graduate of the French Revolution School of Economics and Etiquette, had no interest in the plight of male owners of iPads. "Let them wear hats," she said.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
