What's the difference between a ream of paper and an iPad? In case it isn't obvious enough, one's paper and one's a tablet, doofus.

Apparently, a TV reporter couldn't tell the difference between both because he mistook a ream of paper for an iPad. That reporter is the BBC's Simon McCoy, who was seen clutching the ream of paper as he gave a report on police drunk tanks. Pretty apt report, considering McCoy seemed like he had one too many bottles as he clutched tightly onto the ream of bondpaper for dear life.

The official statement is incredibly boring: 'This morning as Simon McCoy was preparing to introduce this story, instead of picking up his tablet to hold as he went to air, he mistakenly picked up a ream of paper that was sitting next to it. In the rush of live news, he didn't have an opportunity to swap the items, so simply went with it.'

Yeah, right.
