Friday funnies: Best Microsoft-related Tweets

Yeah, yeah, we know. Microsoft certainly made twenty announcements today about some new product or technology that they may or may not introduce and it may or may not work as advertised (for instance we heard lots excitement today about the leaked Microsoft My Phone and also the leaked similar service And if we really looked, some blogger probably found more security problems with the Windows 7 beta sending the blogosphere a-panting. (It's a beta, can we all just calm down a little?) But it's Friday and its late and we at Microsoft Subnet are still working so we said to heck with it all. Let's have some fun. And fun, today, was inspired by the hilarious Web site, Best Tweets.

For those of you that need an offtopic warning, here it is. We scanned the Twitterverse and found only a few Microsoft-related chuckle-worthy tweets. But there were so many others worth sharing, many from Best Tweets, that we added a few others, too. Enjoy!
