With three zillion trillion dollars burning a hole it its pocket, Google decided to purchase YouTube, the popular internet lawsuit magnet.

Oct. 9 (Bloomberg) — Google Inc., the most-used Internet search engine, agreed to buy YouTube Inc. for $1.65 billion, adding the largest video-sharing site on the Web and an audience that watches more than 100 million clips a day.

Expect Yahoo! to respond by flying Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch in for an emergency all-hands* concert and beer bash.

    Man, you are bitter. Of course, I’m bitter too, but mostly because I’m not one of the 67 employees at YouTube who have the horrible task of dividing up $1.65 billion.

    As for the Yahoo! comment…. you know Marky Mark et. al. are no longer right? Or perhaps that’s your point.

    Oh, man. I wonder if they’ll fly me up to Sunnyvale for that. Mark Wahlberg is HOT.

    You were wrong about Yahoo’s response though. They didn’t go with Marky Mark. Instead they tried to talk to aliens!. Too strange to not be true.
