Larry Page; "I can't even find my own balls!"

In a joint news conference, the management teams of Yahoo and Goggle announced that both companies would be auctioned off to the highest bidder on Ebay tomorrow morning. David Filo, co-founder of Yahoo said, "No one can find anything around here anymore. I've been searching for my lost shaker of salt for two weeks. Our accountant has been searching for his pencil all day. What good is it to own a big search engine if you can't find anything? We're going to sell the whole operation on Ebay tomorrow."

At the other end of the conference center, Larry Page, co-founder of Goggle complained to a bunch of reporters, "I can't even find my own balls! They went missing last month and I've had the entire executive team searching for them---no luck. These search engines just aren't as powerful as everyone thinks."

Rumors began circulating late in the day about the possibility of Filo and Page getting together to build a completely new search engine. A Spoof reporter said that the pair had rented a small garage on the other side of town and left the press conference in the same car. A janitor, cleaning up after the event, found a napkin with the word "Yahoogle" scrawled on it.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
