Sarbanes-Oxley robs Ballmer of a free Xbox 360

Poor Steve Ballmer. At a meeting today he revealed that he does not yet have an Xbox 360.  "Thanks to the wonders of Sarbanes-Oxley, management does not get a free Xbox 360," he said. As a result, he has to shop around for one like everybody else and hasn't had any luck getting one yet. The irony of that struck me as deeply amusing.
