Remember yesterday when you asked me the literal definition of irony and I said...
Yeah, this will mostly appeal to the geeks in the audience, but I still can't help but share it here. Check out this screenshot that I took today, and see if you can spot why I find it so amusing.





Ah, geek humor. Is there any known form of comedy that's lower?

Current Mood: smirking

Got it in one... I find a banner advertisement for Microsoft displayed prominently on Slashdot to be absolutely hilarious, the irony here being that Slashdot's primary purpose in life is (was?) Linux advocacy and decrying the tyrrany of Microsoft.

Yet in the end it is Microsoft's advertising revenue that's helping keeping their servers lit.

Mmm, irony can be so delicious.

Where have you been? /. (OSDN, probably) sold out to Doubleclick a long time ago! I've had a lot of those MS inline block ads.

But yes, this happened years ago. That they're displaying -that- particular ad is especially amusing. :oD

Yep. It's amusing to see that despite all their talk about how evil Redmond is, and their subscription to "higher ethics" they still bow in the end to the all-mighty dollar.

So the next time somebody from Slashdot calls me a "Microsoft Whore" I'm just going to laugh and laugh and laugh.
