Larry just IM’d me and he’s like, Hey, do I sound gay in this video clip?

And I was like, Um, dude, you sound gay all the time — did you really not realize this?

He’s like, I do? Really? And I’m like, Duh, pal. Have you never figured out why everybody at the yoga club calls you Lyle? Have you ever listened to your voice mail message? Go call your own number and listen to what you sound like. Larry says everyone sounds gay on their voice mail message, but you know what? I don’t. But I did have to do it over a bunch of times and work on trying to butch up my voice.

But I digress.

Anyway, I have to admit, at the start of this clip Larry really gets carried away and sheds all pretense to being hetero. I think he’s really trying to do a Valley Girl voice, but even that’s kind of … I don’t know.

FYI, the clip is a mashup that Valleywag did where they compare Larry ripping on cloud computing today versus Larry promoting “network computing” (ie the same thing) a decade ago.

Here’s the original clip, and for the Valley Girl part, go to the 45-second mark:
