Ah, satire. If you ever wonder whether you company is getting a reputation, just wait for the blogosphere to make fun of you.

Case in point: Yahoo! Announces Acquisition of Company Before Its Foundation:

SUNNYVALE, CA, Jan 11, 2006 (YARDLEYPRESS) – Yahoo! Inc. (Nasdaq:YAHOO), a leading global Internet company, today announced the acquisition of an unnamed Web 2.0 company three days before it was to be founded. “Yahoo! is committed to generating mass quantities of free public relations by acquiring more pre-revenue, pre-business plan companies than any other global Internet company,” said Chris P. Bacon, Director of Hype Production.

Thanks to Kevin Burton for passing this one along.
