    Apple today announced the latest addition to its Board of Directors -- former Vice President of the United States, Al Gore. The company noted that Gore was elected in a meeting of the board today.

    Apple CEO Steve Jobs called his company "excited and honored" to have been chosen by Gore; Apple's Board of Directors is the first private sector board Gore has chosen to serve on, according to Jobs.

    "Al brings an incredible wealth of knowledge and wisdom to Apple from having helped run the largest organization in the world -- the United States government -- as a Congressman, Senator and our 45th Vice President. Al is also an avid Mac user and does his own video editing in Final Cut Pro," said Jobs.

    Calling Apple "the very best in the world," the former Vice President said that he's looking forward to working with and learning from Apple's other board members. "I have been particularly impressed with the new Mac OS X operating system and the company's commitment to the open source movement," he said.

    We all know he did not mean to say he created the internet, but it came out that way. So he, will never live it down. :blink:

    As for funny, I don't know about that. :unsure:
