Gates Can't Believe Buffet Fell for the Old "Charity" Scheme

(Seattle, WA) Billionaire investor Warren Buffett's decision to donate a total of $37 billion - most to a foundation started by Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates - drew an astonished response from the software tycoon.

"I knew Warren was getting up there in years, but I didn't think he was freaking senile," laughed Gates. "I mean, I'm happy to take the old bastard's money, but I thought a savvy investor like Warren Buffet would have smelled out my 'charity' scam right away."

Gates said that he almost felt sorry for fleecing the 75-year-old Buffet, whose Berkshire Hathaway firm is one of the world's largest investment brokers.

"We might have to coin a new phrase to describe this kind of deal," he said, shaking his head. "How about: 'Like stealing a fortune from an Alzheimer's patient?'"

The fake philanthropic scheme was hatched, said Gates, in the 1970s and helped generate cash for his fledgling software business.

"Listen - startup capital is harder than hell to get, but everyone wants to throw money at starving children," he said. "I'm not proud of what I've done, but goddammit - I am going to control almost $100 billion in the next five years. That, my friend, is some scary shit."

Comments:
Don't fall for it Bob, Warren's typing up an email as we speak outlining how he's got all this money, but it's tied up in a special Nigerian account see?

He just needs Bill to advance some funds to allow him to free it up so's he can donate it.
 
Such philanthropists.

I know it's a scam, but where does the world domination part come in?
