Q Toon: Simon Says

CNBC's "Squawk Box" was discussing the lack of any openly gay CEO's among the Fortune 500 when co-host Simon Hobbs stunned his fellow panelists by offering, "“I think Tim Cook is fairly open about the fact he’s gay at the head of Apple, isn’t he?”

After an awkward silence, James B. Stewart (on the show to discuss his book on the topic) answered, "Um. No."

Mr. Cook has given generously to and advocated for LGBT causes, runs a gay-friendly company, and last week again marched with his employees at San Francisco's Pride parade. But he has not discussed his personal life in public, nor has he been publicly linked to anyone romantically.

Which isn't stopping me from having a little fun with the story.

Have a happy Fourth o' July everyone!
