(satire – maybe)
US billionaire Warren Buffett has admitted he may have paid above the going market rate for a meal of beans on toast he ordered in a roadside cafe yesterday after he got the bill and discovered he had been charged $28bn for the acquisition of food giants Heinz and Hovis.
Mr Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway company and private equity firm 3G agreed to take over the food companies, famous for baked beans and bread, after Mr Buffett felt a bit peckish and decided to have a plate of two buttered toast covered in lashings of baked beans in tomato sauce on his way home from the office.
However, financial experts say the final bill for the US’s most famous businessmen and one of the richest men in the world is likely to rise even further after a spokesperson for Tetley confirmed they were looking into reports that Mr Buffett had decided to wash down his snack with a mug of tea.
