Humiliation follows the firewall's collapse for company and richest man alive, Bill Gates - head of Microsoft

The famous technology-developing company Microsoft face utter and total humiliation today, following the collapse of their firewall.

From early reports, we can say that around eleven o'clock (pm) yesterday, Microsoft's mile-high blazing brick wall fell down. The wall has stood there since the launch of Windows XP, quietly burning away - until last night.

Bill Gates announced: "I and the whole of Microsoft are disheartened by this tragic accident, but we will go on as if nothing happened." Mr Gates has also decided to replace the wall, with a bigger and better one.

Some believe, however, that this accident is one of the world's most expensive publicity stunt for Windows Vista - the next adaptation of the Windows operating system, due out later this year. Mac L Over, a business expert, said: "It could be to give Vista a platform to launch from - a sort of 'amazing comeback' for Microsoft in the eyes of the public. It's costly and certainly not risk-free, but Bill Gates has enough cash to spread around to the cover the costs easily, doesn't he?"

The corporation have denied this, claiming it was not a publicity stunt, but a plain, ordinary accident. "The company is dedicated to the production of Windows software and the development of Windows Vista." said a spokesperson earlier today. "In order to deliver top-quality products, Microsoft will not sacrifice time in such a trivial way. We are dedicated to producing Vista and other related products for sale at ridiculously high prices, and won't spend time destroying long-standing pieces of history."

Microsoft has recently been in many arguments with rivals - so speculation leads us to believe that it could have been caused by rivals such as Apple. However, Apple claim that they "would never do such a thing." But the Microsoft/Apple feud is at a bigger stage than ever before, with Bill Gates disallowing any employees to say "iPod" - let alone use one.

A funeral service will be held for those left without a loved one due to the accident. The Microsoft Widows ceremony will take place in a week's time, with a free copy of Microsoft Office 2003 for the grieving.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
