Some Lyrics to Ponder

By -

I’m a dog, and I can smell your smell right through your clothes
And I espouse some views that you yourself just might not hold
Sometimes I am given pause to think when
I consider what we could call the good life

When it comes to the city versus the country life
Well, I must say that I far prefer a farmer’s wife
Breakfast with the master in the morning
Feel the breeze and brush against a cow’s leg – mmm!

I’m pretty sure Marissa “the luckiest woman in the world” Mayer’s free ride is over at Yahoo. She had nothing – virtually nothing at all – to do with the resurgence in the company’s stock. The irony is that everyone thought the pretty blonde turned the company around, whereas the very scary looking not-blonde guy (and the fortuitous circumstance of YHOO owning a lot of BABA, which preceded Marissa’s entrance) had everything to do with it.

No matter. She’s wildly rich, and I’m sure she’ll die wildly rich. Lucky her. In the meantime, I think Yahoo is an empty shell, and utterly shortable.
