Ballmer Takes Hu to Task on Piracy

There's a whole "Hu's on First," Abbot-and-Costello-style routine to be written about Chinese President Hu Jintao, but since your editor isn't a comedy writer he'll (mercifully) leave that to someone else. In the meantime, Hu had a heck of a week in the U.S. last week, including some less-than-friendly (although totally appropriate -- even necessary) comments from Steve Ballmer about how the software piracy rate in China is 90 percent.

OK, OK, we can't resist just a little tidbit:
Hu's the president of China.
I don't know. Who's the president of China?
Yes, you do know. That's right. Hu's the president of China.
No, I don't know. Who's the president of China?
Exactly.
What? Who?
Right, Hu.
I don't know who!
Of course you do. Hu's the president of China.
I don't know. Who's the president of China?
Yes…

Oh, it's just not as good in writing. Try your hand at a Hu bit and send it to [email protected]
