That'd be Steve "Ballistic" Ballmer we reckon. Anyone interested in chipping in for the whip-round we're having to buy GOO61E as a birthday present for Steve should send their contributions to the usual address.

The current total stands at £5.71 - that being the entire contents of today's Vulture Central swear jar (mostly Lucy Sherriff: "Hey, my organic tofu and sea urchin salad hasn't got any f**king virgin-thigh-rubbed wheat grass extract in it, for f**k's sake...") - but we calculate that if Ballmer emptied the contents of his office swear jar, he could snap up the plate instantly and still have plenty left over to by some new office furniture. ®
