Even Microsoft Execs Like Making Fun Of Steve Ballmer

Ritual Steve Ballmer humiliation isn't just for blogs anymore! Nope, now even Microsoft's corporate class - in this case Microsoft Developer Division VP Scott Guthrie - is in on the joke. Way in.

This clip comes from today's Mix Keynote, where Guthrie was running through the nuts and bolts of Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 development tools, demonstrating an app called Marionette. Ballmer, to his credit, appears to have been in on the joke, contributing a somewhat painfully referential audio clip to the gag. Even Steve Ballmer likes making fun of Steve Ballmer.

So, are we allowed to laugh at this anymore? I think so?
