    That makes perfect sense. They're going to be working with one of the wealthiest corporations on the planet -- so they just absolutely MUST slash 3,500 jobs! It's a must-must!!! I mean, hey -- you know, money doesn't grow on trees.

    Bill Gates is reading this, thinking... "wait a second -- it DOESN'T?! Damn -- I missed a real opportunity!!! I could have been developing money-making trees....!!!"

    (I have NO idea what made me think of that last strange and frankly out-of-left-field comment. I need some more coffee... or maybe less!!!)

    Wow! Rilly?! Like, wow...

    So, what you're trying to say is that my joke makes no sense to you? Rilly? Because in my warped and diseased mind, I could have SWORN that I didn't say anything about Bill Gates still working for Microsoft. Maybe I know my history. Maybe I knew that Bill Gates USED to work for Microsoft -- or rather, that Microsoft worked for Bill Gates. Maybe I even know that Bill and Melinda decided to set up a foundation to help kids who are suffering from Malaria in Africa. But none of that matters, because oh yeah -- YOU GOT ME!!! Pow -- RIGHT IN THE KISSER!!! YOU REALLY just nailed it with THAT one...

    (Rolling eyes, yawning, scratching my three-day-old beard, thinking about how much longer do I HAVE TO PUT UP WITH TWELVE-YEAR OLDS who CAN'T EVEN SHAVE before they FINALLY stop bothering me...)

    But anyway. I digress. Your point was...?!
