Corporations can be downright humorless when it comes to their mascots and intellectual property, but someone at Microsoft got to have some fun with the “beloved” Office Assistant known as Clippy. Whatever happened to that guy, anyway?

Don’t write off ol’ Clippy so fast, guys.

We’re not sure if this next tweet is going to make sleeping tonight easier or more difficult.
Two sources in Redmond have confirmed that Clippy was buried in the concrete-and-rebar foundation of Studio A. He's not coming back, @levie
