Following is a listing of the top 26 replies by The Cult of Art of War whenever their Sunzi strategies did not work:
26. Where were you when this problem occurred?
25.  I was busy shopping for that special tramslation of Sunzi that I saw Wesley Snipes was reading in the Passenger 57 movie.
24.  I was too busy quoting Michael Douglas lines from the Wall Street movie

22.  I was taking inspirational advice from a female strategist (from the East Coast) who claimed that being happy is everything.  
21.  You don't say.
20. That’s weird…
19. It’s never done that before.
18. It worked yesterday.
17. How is that possible?
16. It must be a tactical performance problem.  Therefore, the fault is not mine's.

04. You can’t use that tactic with my team.
03. Why do I have to assess the situation, don't you know who I am?
02.  My version of Sunzi did not resolve my inner demons
01. It worked on my head while I am sniffing crack
