image for Bill Gates Floats Away
"HELP!" Gates was last heard to say

Due to recent flooding in the Seattle, Washington area, Bill Gates recently stepped onto the porch of his Mercer Island home on Lake Union and floated away.

"I guess he's so used to floating in money that he didn't notice that he was floating away in floodwaters," Gates' wife, Melinda, remarked. "Most of our assets ARE liquid, after all."

"We have a keen weather-eye out for Bill, and we do expect his return at some point," Melinda continued. "When the water recedes, I think he'll be floating back home."

Meanwhile, Microsoft stockholders have organized a search and rescue operation on Lake Union. "He was spotted recently, floating past the houseboat where the Tom Hanks character was supposed to have lived in the movie, "Sleepless in Seattle," board member, Elvin Sweeney reported.

Hope for Gates' return remains high as the Seattle floodwaters continue to recede.
