25. A lying machine that can't lie

An electronics firm invented a new machine, the Excuser,designed to come up with creative and convincing excuses. Aimed atpeople who are perennially late for work, or forget their wives'birthdays, or the like. This was a fairly expensive new productlaunch, so they took out an insurance policy against unforeseenproduct defects. They launched the machine with much fanfare.

|

Unfortunately, a problem did develop. The system would alwaysgive the boss the real reason why the person was late, and turnedout to be no good at inventing false ones. This made volume salessomewhat unlikely, and so the company went to its insurer to claimfor the losses they'd made. The insurance company listened to thestory, and checked the policy terms. The representative came backto the electronics company and said: “Sorry, but you're not coveredfor product lie ability.”
