Re: Well Duh!

I always love when a suit comes out, makes an obvious as hell statement then plays the public for fools and says that their comment was misrepresented, out of context, or misunderstood.

SBC CEO: The sky is green!

The public: WTF?

SBC CEO: Oh, no - the sky is blue, you misunderstood me.
