When You Gotta Go.....

I am a bit late on this one, but at the JavaOne conference in San Francisco last month, former Sun CEO Scott McNealy engaged in a bit of rare humour..(He's the one who said infamously, "You already have zero privacy...get over it," in regard to customer privacy issues and shopping online. ) McNealy drew up a list of top ten great things about being CEO anymore, having handed over the baton to Jonathan Schwartz.. Here are some:

#10: "I don't have to apologize for the stuff I say to Wall Street, Jonathan does." (This is a little confusing: how can Schwartz apologise for what McNealy says? )
#9: "I'm no longer on the most overpaid CEO list." (Why doesn't he want to be?)
#8: "I just say, "See Jonathan on that." (Of course.)
#6: "I shave even less often." (He seemed pretty clean-shaven to us most of the time....)
#4: "I have someone to blame now." (We would all love this.)
#3: "I can sell my last business suit." (On eBay?)
#2: "Jonathan doesn't golf, so I guess I gotta do it. " (Good one..)
#1: "My new office is very close to the men's room." (No comment...!!!)
