Scene: The Wild Web Celebration as Google Buys Deja www.google.com: And now, Deja, you are absorbed. www.deja.com: Good, I love being called google. Can I be googleplex? www.google.com: No, that is being saved for when we google ourselves. www.buy.com: Doesn't anyone want me? www.pets.com: Me too? www.dotcomscoop.com: If you just read me, you'd already know the answer to that. www.dogcrap.com: Hey, I'm an URL, how about me? Google? www.google.com: We don't buy no lousy stinking dogcrap.com. www.badges.com: How about us? www.google.com: Badges.com? We don't need no lousy stinkin' badges.com. www.humphreybogart.com: Hey, wait a minute, that's my line. www.treasureofthesierramadre:com: Not so fast, bucco, that is MY line, and if you don't watch out I'll let that scorpion sting you after all. www.humphreybogart.com: Who took the cherries? www.ballbearings.com: Quit that. www.google.com: All you other URLs can go home. We're not buying anybody else. Today, I mean. Although we do have our eyes on some other sites, most exclusively... www.play-a-day.com: Me! Me! Me! Pick me! And by the way, fix your damn search so that when people search for "play-a-day" they don't get play any day or play one day or play day. People want me! They love me! And most importantly, my fabulous boolean logic! Spock: That is illogical.
