Apple Fans Lining Up For iHand

As we reported on Onion News Network tonight (Fridays 10/9c on IFC), this week Apple rolls out its newest must-have gadget, the iHand. Millions of devoted Apple fans have already pre-ordered the sleek device, cutting off their hands early so they can be the first of their friends to attach the high-tech prosthetic hand to their severed wrist. We received thousands of messages from Mac fans excited for the upcoming release.
