Funny Stuff? You Be the Judge

Every so often, a cartoonist sends me samples of IT humor hoping to get published. In all cases, the work has been lamer than Barbaro's right leg.

There's a new contender for the IT cartoon Hall of Fame, this time sponsored by Microsoft. The strip is called "HEROES happen {here}." Not sure what that name is supposed to mean, but it sure ain't funny.

The strip is also designed to show off Silverlight. In fact, you have to download Silverlight before you can start laughing your IT butt off. I went through the process, wanting to give the strip a full whirl. The result? Less laughter than a Bill Belichick press conference.
