AOL and Yahoo! Rumored to Merge, Attempting to Spawn the Worst Conglomerate of All Time


NOT from the people that brought you AOL Time Warner.

But it might as well be: AOL (NYSE: AOL) and Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO) could be joining together as one in an effort to…do what, exactly? TechCrunch has the scoop.

Apparently, AOL is ran by a bunch of, well, yahoos, as the company has decided to chat with Yahoo's bankers about a merger.

It doesn't make much sense for two medium-tier, struggling entities to form one giant struggling entity that will kill jobs and run both companies deeper into the ground.

But as TechCrunch notes, this isn't the first time an AOL-Yahoo merger has been proposed.

Let's hope this proposal turns out like the last, because these are not two companies that should ever say, “I do.”
