And Yet, This Is Still Preferable To Ace Greenberg Giving Us Intimate Details About Barbara Walters

Yet again, Warren Buffett has gone the fuck out of his way to awkwardly marry aberrant sex fetish with folksy business wisdom. In response to a question about what makes people want to sell their companies to him, Buffet said:

You can sell it to Berkshire, and we'll put it in the Metropolitan Museum; it'll have a wing all by itself; it'll be there forever. Or you can sell it to some porn shop operator, and he'll take the painting and he'll make the boobs a little bigger and he'll stick it up in the window, and some other guy will come along in a raincoat, and he'll buy it.


Listen, we're all for a. fucking and b. analogies but time and time again Buffett bends over backwards to just get the sex reference in without even really illuminating the actual point and the best part is he doesn't give a rat's ass. He might as well have answered, "You know, it would be like putting a huge pair of cans on a mouse in a lab. Sure, they're fun to play with but at the end of the day, you're still fucking a rodent." But since he's old, set in his ways, and not going to change any time soon, let's place bets on when WB will drop the pretense and just start showing up to interviews with Becky Quick (but thinking about Liz Claman) in a bathrobe, answering questions with only one hand showing. We're going to go with soon.

This Is Warren Buffett Telling A CNBC Anchor How Difficult It's Been To Bang The Guy's Wife

As some of you may have noticed over the years, Warren Buffett has carved out a pretty unique niche for himself in using analogies about whorehouses, porn shops, one-night stands, taking Viagra, fondling inanimate objects (or simply laying the ground work to do so) when discussing business. Regardless of the topic, no matter the setting, he's prepared to go out of his way marry aberrant sex fetish with folksy business wisdom. So naturally, when asked by Andrew Ross Sorkin on Squawk Box this morning if a $22 billion acquisition by Berkshire Hathway that didn't pan out earlier this year might happen at some point in the future, Buffett told the gang "It's always possible. When a girl hangs up on me, I try again," rather than "Sure," or "Yeah, anything can happen," or "Never say never, Andy." At this point, the anchors could have moved on but Joe Kernen saw an opening for a little repartee and went for it, not realizing that he was dealing with a professional. [8:45
