Someone is trying to buy us out

The chief executive officer of an electronics company called in his public relations director.  “Listen, Wilson.  Someone is trying to buy us out.  It’s your job to get the price of our stock up so it’ll be too expensive for them.  I don’t care how you do it, just do it.”  And he did.

When asked how, he replied, “I started a rumor Wall Street obviously liked.”

“What was that?”

“I told them you were resigning.”
