Do you have a Second ? I have something really important to Speak with you about .....
I really don't get the illustration, but the general topic reminds of how this type of news was probably relayed to the C-suits at Sony.

> I really don't get the illustration

The joke is this: the numbers -- the data -- are escaping out through a large broken window; the data loss is enormously obvious and plain while the executive on the right tries to downplay it.

By the time the story was done the listeners were surely bewildered!

Data
Alternatively, if you imagine that the numbers are coming in through the window instead of going out, it becomes a joke about big data.
