Really, the printer jokes write themselves. "KPMG did finish the final report, but Leo's printer ran out of ink so he couldn't finish printing it." "HP actually paid only $1B for Autonomy, but refilling the software was another $10B."

(I know they're separate companies - HP Inc and HPE - now, but the Autonomy deal was pre-split, of course.)
