  1. Paul says:

    Resistance is futile.

    (OK so it was obvious… But I got here first.)


  2. Hermetic says:

    Top: “Stop! In the name of love…”

  3. Eric says:

    Ever the competitor, Bill was not content to let Michael steal the spotlight with his purchase of the Beatles music catalog. No, he would one-up Jacko by not only buying the rights to the Supremes, but he would also re-assemble the trio (using, instead, an “upgrade” of middle-aged white men on stools), and put on a show that Steve Jobs would envy, including his own very soulful arrangement of “Stop…In the Name of Love.” Then, who would be the uber-geek? Who, indeed?

    (oops…sorry…I typed this and came to post it before seeing Hermetic’s entry. Really!)

  4. Paul says:

    That was actully my first thougt Hermetic, but some how Bill Gates and “love” just sickened me. 😉

  5. michele says:

    No, I do NOT want to do the Horah again!

  6. Steven says:

    Top one: “I never could do that Vulcan salute thing.”

  7. Steven says:

  8. Bottom pic: At a press conference to announce a new embrace and extend philosophy Bill Gates is stunned to learn from a reporter that the two leaders of the “Linux Users Who Love Microsoft Coalition” seated with him are, in fact, the entire membership of the organization.

  9. Jay Solo says:

    Bill Gates demonstrates planned new ‘Virtual Control Rendering’ (VCR) interface for Microsoft Flight Simulator .NET 2006, slated for release in late 2005.

  10. Katewerk says:

    Microsoft has announced release of a patch for its new Bill Gates 2003 operating system, after a series of freezes occured during a speech he was giving Wednesday. Company officials downplayed the incident, stressing that at no time was the company founder in danger of a BSOD*.

  11. KCat says:

    To show how much he likes Apple, Bill does the MACarena.

  12. Chortle says:

    “But is is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.”

  13. “Excuse me, but I need to go drop some attachments in the iLoo.”

  14. DaKoz says:

    A little bit softer now . . . A little bit softer now, hey ay ay ay

  15. Wayne says:

    Top Pic: “Hold it…. Whomever here is a multi-billionaire, raise both their arms.”

    Bottom Pic: “Thought so, losers. Now shut up and everyone focus on me, the really rich guy.”

  16. Bottom pic: Wait, wait. I’m the richest geek here, and I have my bank statement to prove it.

  17. Lasting Magic says:

    “All right, all right. So I was never very good at Rock, Paper, Scissors and I’m still lousy at it.”

  18. mtpolitics says:


    Bill “Heavy G” tells Ballmer, “Sit down and shut up, or I’ll bust a cap in yo’ ass fo’ shizzle.”


    “Bill gets down with his own bad self.”

  19. Tiger says:

    Top: “So when you said I have my thumb up my butt, exactly how do you hold your hand to do that?”

  20. Both:

    “So it’s me and McNealy at 30,000 feet, I’m vertical, entering a Hammerhead Stall, weapons clear…”

  21. Rodney Dill says:

    You put your left arm in, you put your left arm out.
    You put your left arm in, and you shake it all about.
