    Funny stuff. How is it that Bill Gates can't afford a decent haircut or a suit that fits properly?

    My thoughts exactly. Some people will take every chance they get to make a big deal about any minor event that makes Microsoft (oh, I'm sorry, Mi"crap"$oft :rolleyes: ) look bad. Isn't it enough that they make themselves look bad in many cases? :p

    I must have missed it. Where exactly was MS "ripped," aside from the poor quality of their mic setup?

    Seemed this bit was more making fun of the Chinese President (Minister?) than anything.

    Right. If anyone had half a brain, they'd see that this wasn't an attack on Microsoft at all. It's all a joke. Just calm down and move on with life; get away from your computer chair for 10 minutes a day.

    Ummm... but it IS an attack on Bill Gates and the policies of Microsoft.

    I just thought they were making fun of Clippy, who totally deserves it :)

    "Oh look, someone made a slightly negative comment about Microsoft. I sure hope I'm the first person to post this at MacRumours, loLz!!!"

    I liked the paper clip thing because everytime I start writing a letter it annoyingly pops up and asks if I need help writing a letter.

    The rest of it wasn't that funny.

    It's just okay. I wouldn't say completely not funny. I'm more of a Colbert man, myself.

    Everyone is more of a Colbert man, but Jon does his job well. He's sticking with politics, and Colbert is sticking with the insane amount of crack.

    It's funny, just not really a stab at Microsoft.
