Buried in a satirical piece about vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, Politico’s Roger Simon makes this AWESOME aside on Microsoft Powerpoint presentations.n ROFL!
PowerPoint was released by Microsoft in 1990 as a way to euthanize cattle using a method less cruel than hitting them over the head with iron mallets. After PETA successfully argued in court that PowerPoint actually was more cruel than iron mallets, the program was adopted by corporations for slide show presentations.
Conducting a PowerPoint presentation is a lot like smoking a cigar. Only the person doing it likes it. The people around him want to hit him with a chair.
