The Microhoo Bunch

The recently approved Microsoft-Yahoo search deal, set to a song of my youth…

Here’s the story, of a lovely lady
Her name is Carol Bartz, and she runs Yahoo
It’s a search engine, and a portal
And it’s getting hard to run the two

Here’s the story, of a man named Ballmer
Who was bringing up a search engine of his own
Its name was Bing, and it was pretty good
But it was all alone

Til the one day when the lady met this fellow
And they knew it was much more than a hunch
That the two, might somehow reach a deal
That’s the way they both became the Microhoo Bunch!

The Microhoo Bunch
The Microhoo Bunch
That’s the way, they both hope to eat Google for lunch

Yeah, I know, the lyrics could be better. And it really needs a mock-up of the Brady Bunch in that Hollywood Squares box. And who’s Alice in all this….
