The Register gets accused of attacking Microsoft just for the sheer hell of it, but recent events have made the hacks of Vulture Central seem like trusty servants of the Great Satan. The software titan has –- along with an unholy host of other major multi-nationals -– been depicted in a reworking of Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. The Churches Advertising Network has arranged the companies' representatives either side of Christ, in the same manner that da Vinci depicted the disciples. Microsoft is sat in Judas' seat. We're saying nothing. Intel also figures in the piece –- sat where Bartholomew would have been in the original. Bartholomew -– who he? Well, the world's longest running fair was named after Bartholomew -– St Bartholomew's Fair, no less. It ran for 400 years before being banned for being the scene of too much lewd and bawdy behaviour. Hmmm. IBM is also there, completing the IT Holy Trinity. Who would Big Blue have been in the original -– James the Greater, who was the son of Zebedee. Go figure. The other companies featured in the modern day Last Supper, are: Nokia, Mercedes-Benz, General Electric, Disney, Coca-Cola, Gillette, Sony and Kodak. There is a 12th, but the company logo is blank. It would appear that few, if any, of the companies gave permission for the Christian group to use them in this way. According to The Guardian, Microsoft didn't give permission, for fear of causing offence. ®
