Ballmer dodges eggs with cat-like reflexes

For all the — ahem — gentle, good-natured ribbing that we give Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer here, I don’t know if he deserves to have eggs thrown at him. With this latest incident and the Bill Gates pie-in-the-face incident, are any top-level Microsoft executives really, truly safe from the onslaught of surprise food-based attacks?

The Hungarian man in the video “accused Microsoft of stealing millions from the country’s taxpayers,” referring to a recent software agreement between Hungary and Microsoft, according to InformationWeek. After his verbal tirade, he threw three eggs at Ballmer, missing each time. After the man left, Ballmer seemed good-natured about the incident, commenting that the man “broke his train of thought.”
