Billionaire investor Warren Buffett, whose company Berkshire Hathaway is the number two shareholder in Anheuser Busch, interjected a little humor into the discussions of Belgium-based InBev’s attempt to acquire the great American beer company:

Buffett, who is one of Anheuser’s largest shareholders, said he had not held talks with anyone, and laughed off media reports that he supported the bid.

“The interesting thing is that I have not commented on that, although people have run stories on what I have done,” he said. “Maybe they are confusing me with (singer) Jimmy Buffett.”
