I want advice

What startup founders will tell VCs when they really want funding but don't want to ask directly because they think they will be shot down right away.

John: Hey Marc Andreessen. We have this new app that's like Vine except the videos are 10 seconds long because we think that's more optimal. I would like some advice.
Marc: Do you really want advice or are you just here for funding? I prefer when people are direct.
John: Sorry we really just wanted funding.
Marc: No
