Bill Gates and company's efforts to get people to stop using Google is getting silly

No doubt you’ve already heard about Microsoft’s “Scroogled” campaign - their odd marketing push to discredit Google. This week they took things up - or down - a few notches by rolling out a whole product line devoted to bad mouthing their big rival. The whole thing just seems sad and desperate. At this rate, a scene like the one I drew here doesn’t seem so far fetched.

It seems weird to feel sorry for a company that still makes tons of dough, but still, I kind of do. Come on, Bill, have some dignity!

Happy Friday, y’all!
