1. No it isn't.
1. This is directly related to video games
2. Would it be illegal for me to make a t-shirt with this logo?
3. If not, Would I be able to sell shirts like this?
4. I know under certain conditions you can use publc figures (obama) if they are known by enough people.
Does the same thing apply to images like this?
5. I do know iexplore is the worst browser ever, just a inside joke in my programming classes.

Internet Explorer isn't even a browser. IE 6,7,8,9,etc are separate applications.
Sounds like a bunch of college kids thinking they're being funny and original by jumping on a bandwagon. The lawyers will have the shirts off their backs.

Maybe if you wear it at a convention and ask for Ballmer's autograph...
Are you running a t-shirt selling business, or are you making a one-off joke for yourself to wear?
No one is going to sue you for making yourself a one-off joke t-shirt.
