Ballmer Gut Busters

Steve Ballmer is certainly not afraid to make fun of himself. His speeches are wildly over the top. Now he is letting his own phone, Window Phone 7, poke fun at the sometimes wild and crazy CEO.

Microsoft is allowing employees, on the their own time, to write Windows Phone 7 apps for pay. One such app has a treasure trove of jokes made at Mr. Ballmer's expense. I'm not sure it is worth buying a Windows phone for, but it sure gives me more respect for the Microsoft boss.
