great moments... the annals of marketing

And last, I reached Nancy Goldfarb, with Lipton Tea.

Me: So, are you pleased that Lipton is the tea of choice of Saddam Hussein? Have you figured out a way to leverage that into a marketing strategy? Maybe, "Time for a Des-pot of Tea"?

Nancy: I don't believe our plans are changing at all.

Me: So, basically, do you think it is possible to be a satanic genocidal maniac and still enjoy Lipton tea?

Nancy: I am not going to answer that. Do you have any marketing questions about our product?

Me: Yes.

Nancy: Okay.

Me: Do you know if Lipton is also the tea of choice of Osama bin Laden?
