That Microsoft Corporation MSFT co-founder Bill Gates has shared a longstanding friendship with his fellow billionaire Warren Buffett is no secret.
What Happened: Gates on Saturday shared a picture of himself along with the Berkshire Hathaway, Inc. (NYSE: BRK-A) (NYSE: BRK-B) CEO holding Dairy Queen Blizzards upside down. A Blizzard is a soft-serve mechanically blended ice cream with mixed-in ingredients such as sundae toppings and brownies, and a staple on Dairy Queen’s menu since its introduction in 1985. Buffett acquired Dairy Queen in 1998 for about $600 million.
Gates captioned the picture, “Spending time with my best friend Warren never gets old. I’d flip Blizzards with you any day.”

Why It’s Important: Buffett has contributed about half of the resources under the disposal of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the tech entrepreneur said previously.
“His incredible generosity is a huge reason why the foundation has been able to be so ambitious. I can never adequately express how much I appreciate his friendship and guidance,” Gates said.
Since 2006, Buffett reportedly gave away about $35.7 billion to the foundation. Although the two are 25 years apart in age, the business titans have been friends since the 1990s. Gates was a board member at Berkshire for about 15 years.
