Bill Gates Money Giveaway
Below is a picture of Bill Gates that's been circulating on Facebook. Can anyone really believe they'll get $5000 if they share the photo? Or is it being shared as a joke? Since I'm feeling charitable, I'll believe the latter.


The picture is a doctored version of a picture posted by Gates during a recent AMA on reddit. Note that in addition to changing the sign he's holding, the reddit toy on the desk behind him has been replaced by what looks like a sex toy. (via David Emery)

Inexplicably, the painting in the background has also been altered, although I can't tell what either of them are.

triv: The sex toy is "The Gryphon" from Bad Dragon (which sells fantasy sex toys).

The painting in the background is some random gay furry porn. The character might be "N'Duk the Hunter" (a Mongoose) based on coloration. But it might be a dragon or something too.
