A few days after Microsoft laid off 1,400 employees as part of a recession-prompted purge of 5,000, Seattle's thrift stores are stuffed to the gills with pawned off Microsoft t-shirts.

Some (like the "Warriors in Pink" Zune shirt or the hopelessly wishful thinking "Windows Mobile is better than iPhone" shirt) are just surreally absurd and corporately propagandist, like shirts flushed through a dimensional wormhole from another world where Microsoft was not being trounced in coolness in both cell phones and audio players.
