If you remember the meme from a few years ago that came out of the Bill Gates and Steve Jobs interview at the All Things D conference in 2007 then you should find this funny, and if not then there’s still time to get up to speed.
The meme has resurfaced recently in Taiwan, well, it’s doing the rounds at the moment in emails with subjects that look like “FW: FW: FW: FW: FW: 超好笑！“. But we found it funny enough to feature here and translate the Chinese versions back into English for you with some keywords defined. Enjoy!
