Warren Buffett revealed during his Swiss news conference today that he broke his toe last week during a visit to the home of his "extremely good friend" Bill Gates.
And, he quipped, if his lawsuit against Gates is successful, he'll be able to increase his lead over the Microsoft chairman on the Forbes list of global billionaires. Buffett is currently number one on that list, followed by Gates.
(Serious matters were also discussed during the news conference. They're summarized in the WBW post Warren Buffett Doesn't Expect to Leave Europe With a Deal in His Pocket.)
The part about the lawsuit is clearly not serious. It's not entirely clear to me whether Buffett did actually break his toe, but it sounds like he did.
Listen for yourself. Here's the video clip from the news conference:
