Would you?

This picture’s been doing the rounds on the net for quite a while now. You’ve probably received it (in one of those annoying “Fwd: Fw: Fwd: Fw: Fw: Re: Re: Fw: Funny” emails), and it has probably questioned your stock-market-investing skills.

Identify the pic, and the two people whose faces I’ve whited out!

[Ed note: plz to ignore Srikanth’s rants on email etiquette. Thanks.)

Points party for everyone!

Answer:

The original bunch at Microsoft. Hidden: Bill Gates and Paul Allen’s photos.
