Just about every inside joke imaginable popped up at this evening’s Crunchies awards, an event that honored startups that have performed above and beyond in 2010 — from jokes about TechCrunch writer MG Siegler’s obsessions with Apple devices to ambush interviews between TechCrunch’s Mike Arrington and Groupon CEO Andrew Mason.
