A while ago, one of my coworkers distributed an amusing parody of the 50s-era "Communist Scare" propaganda. Titled "A Reminder From Your Friends At Microsoft," the parody offered the following sage wisdom: "When you program open source, you're programming Communism." I don't know where he got it, but it was pretty silly:

A Reminder From Your Friends At Microsoft: When you program open source, you're programming Communism.


madkawa got a hold of that picture and had some fun with photo editing software. He decided to make me the communist programmer:

A Reminder From Your Friends At Microsoft: When you program open source, you're programming Communism.


Not content to let it rest with turning me into a Communist, madkawa went further and turned our team's lead architect into my evil taskmaster:

A Reminder From Your Friends At Microsoft: When you program open source, you're programming Communism.


This is the graphic that currently serves as my desktop picture at work.

I believe the original (thought it was probably based on a real anti-Communism poster from way back) was an anti-filesharing one. "When you download music off the Internet, you're downloading Communism" or something.

You look positively pitiful in the poster. :(

I guess that's what communism does to you, huh?
