The Euphemism Hall of Fame

The former CFO for Bristol-Myers Squibb is on trial for alleged channel-stuffing, and this article tells us that the judge has narrowed the government's case. Good news for the defendant, but what attracted my attention was this part of the story:

Oh, it was just selling ahead of demand -- why didn't you say so? That makes it all OK!
