Justice has finally been served in the world of Microsoft?and we\u2019re not talking antitrust law. When it created Windows XP, the software giant axed Clippy, that annoying bug-eyed paperclip. Now the persistent office assistant that had been irritating Microsoft Office users since Windows 97 is begging for work on www.officeclippy.com.Here\u2019s your chance to vent your frustrations with the disruptive and always-eager-to-teach animated piece of metal. You can vote for his next career move (Should he become a lock pick or a metal band member?), listen to his bluesy and sorrowful song "It Looks Like You\u2019re Writing a Letter," and read his snappy, trendy quotes ("At least I\u2019m not a sock puppet" and "Does this website make me look fat?"). The site also features three streaming videos starring Clippy, his parents and siblings, and the IS characters who can\u2019t stand him. After a while, you might even begin to feel bad for the helper that tormented anyone computer-literate enough to use a mouse. He assumes that XP stands for ex-paperclip without realizing the letters represent experience. He even sheds a few tears.But losing his job isn\u2019t the worst thing that\u2019s happened to Clippy. To promote the XP launch, he\u2019s portrayed on the website by Gilbert Gottfried, the entertainer whose nasal, earsplitting voice has been featured in commercials and movies, including Disney\u2019s Aladdin.Sometimes a clip can\u2019t get a break.
