“Because you’re all dead…”


“Because you’re all dead…”

Those in attendance at the Infrastructure Privatization Summary of Chicago’s Downtown Parking System, at least those in the back row, were treated to an "off the cuff comment."

When Thomas Lanctot of the William Blair Company said: "We could have made this 25 years, or 50 years, or 75 years, but we made it 99 years.  And do you know why?  Do you know why?"  At this point he is holding one finger in the air to emphasize to the audience how important his statement is
going to be.

From the back comes dead-pan delivery: "Because you’re all dead then."

It is reported that some had to leave the room before collapsing in laughter.
