A Dishonest Denial

From a Yahoo news story via the news agency Reuters. What does this look like to you? ... Exactly!
 Three guesses what the prototype for a building in Seoul, South Korea by a Dutch architectural firm looks like and if you need the last two guesses...

What is most sad about all of this is that the people behind it claim (one wonders if it's with a straight face!) that not only was a resemblance to the exploding twin towers not intended but that it wasn't even something they noticed when they designed the mid-section that of this building which was/is to house pools, restaurants, cafes and a gym in the tacky and blatantly obvious stunt.

I said was/is to house... in the previous paragraph because in an equally outrageous act the design company MVRDV said it hasn't yet been decided if the design would be changed! This in spite of claiming "We sincerely apologize to anyone whose feelings we have hurt. It was not our intention." on the company website. Needless to say survivor's families are none to happy with this.

My question to you is, even though many really deplorable things get said and done on a regular basis, is this not one of, if not the most offensive things a company has ever done?


P.S. Oh, and isn't that one of the lamest denials and apologies you have ever come across. Pathetic!

The C.A.T.
