Ballmer makes a cameo appearance

Classic Microsoft. Just before all the shows are about to get shut down by the strike, Ballmer shows up on this new Caveman show, playing himself. In this scene he’s hassling one of the Cavemen because he thinks the guy is Richard Stallman, and Microsoft is threatening to sue him for violating its patents. Oldest plot line in the book, this mistaken identity gag. Goes all the way back to Plautus’s Menaechmi. Or was it I Love Lucy? I always get them mixed up. FWIW, I get offered this kind of TV show cameo appearance thing all the time, and I always turn down the offers. Nice to see Fester can pick up the work that I don’t want. Now if he’d just stop copying my software, we’d be cool. Almost.
