MegaUpload: Deadpan humor at the French Senate
On January 11, 2012, this guy appeared before a committee of the French Senate and said that MegaUpload was a legal corporation, which had never been prosecuted.
On January 19, 2012, MegaUpload was shut down by the FBI, and its founder and some of its executives were indicted; some were arrested in countries as far as New Zealand.
Well done, Sir. Either you were blissfully unaware, either you are even better than Stephen Colbert at deadpan humor.
