Well it is possible to get a virus for OSX, but most big virus and rootkits are simply not allowed to run on the OS. Yay for signed binaries checking.
In the nice PC world, I think the thing that makes me laugh the most is the people actually falling for fake anti-virus like Security Tools or something like that. It's priceless

Well this part is up to you to believe or not. You have the choice to call me a liar by simple frustration or think 5 seconds and realize that you actually don't know me and I'm maybe the opposite of what you are thinking. But this is off topic...
