Googlers didn't make a 'traitor' cake for a departing co-worker

You may have seen this hilarious image floating around recently with the caption: "Googler leaves to join Bing at Microsoft. Here's the cake his co-workers gave him."

Travis is leaving Google for Bing! What a traitor! But unfortunately, it's a bit too good to be true. Travis, the person who got a job working on Bing, was apparently already working at a Microsoft datacenter, not at Google. At least that's what it looks like when the image was posted on Reddit over a year ago.

Apparently there's enough in-fighting over at Microsoft that you can still half-jokingly be considered a traitor if you move to a different part of the company — which is hilarious/depressing just on its own.
