Pretty much the closest you can get to a stand-up comedy monologue about software

Bruce Sterling goes off on open-source. And Bill Gates. And Linus and Eric Raymond. And you. And me. Basically makes fun of everyone who spends too much time with computers. Because he has too. He should have a one man show with a guy on the the drum kit for the punch lines. But really, it shows you that you don't have to be a programmer to make fun of programmers.

(His allegory of Linux as a Hippie Girl is brilliant!)
