Steve Ballmer, the world’s ugliest man, is finally—finally—leaving his post as CEO of Microsoft Corporation. Ballmer, who was recently named by Forbes “[w]ithout a doubt… the worst CEO of a large publicly traded American company,” is receiving a long-overdue sacking. The news led to a 7.29% rise in Microsoft’s stock, as well as much rejoicing.
A number of executives, both within Microsoft and at other companies, are being considered as Ballmer’s replacement. One of the chief contenders is Nokia CEO Steven Elop, who, as can be clearly seen from these two disgusting photos, is the second ugliest man in the world. Whoever is chosen, this turn of events is a stroke of good fortune for Microsoft, and the world. I think we can all join with this retarded giraffe in joyous celebration.
