I like the way they kept the black man's HAND when replacing him with a white man.

Apparently the Klansmen at MS don't even have a decent copy of Photoshop for the Mac to play with. Sad, really.

How many Poles does it take to Photoshop a man's head?

54, if you count all of the consultants, service technicians, applications specialists and anti-virus programmers needed to keep Photo$lop running on a Windoze box long enough to alter the photograph in question...

At least this is a break from the usual Micro$haft advertising of late: featuring a young Ted Bundy simulating the murders of various endangered species; the four year old girl that is trolling for sugar daddies to molest; and the peculiarly dumb chick that is alledgedly going to "college", even though she can't seem to figure out that a Mac is far cheaper to buy than some crummy, Hecho in Chinese Sweatshop HP faux computer when one adds in the massive costs of anti-viruses and other software that simply comes with a Mac.

What puzzles me is they they didn't replace the Chinese dude on the left as well. I guess Photo$lop for Windoze can't handle two edits without massive systems upgrades and four Service Packs?
