Carl Icahn’s “Plan B” for Yahoo!?

We here at NotMakingThisUp don’t normally engage in rumor-mongering of any kind. As loyal readers know, we try assiduously to stick to what we do not make up.

But in the case of the latest news from Carl Icahn’s seriously miscalculated effort to force Yahoo! and Microsoft into a shotgun marriage, we want to report the following suggestion from a loyal reader:

Carl’s New Plan to Rescue Yahoo!:

1. Merge Icahn investment in Yahoo! (ticker YHOO) with Icahn investment in Motorola (ticker MOT).2. Put obsolete Yahoo! software on obsolete Motorola hardware.3. Select new stock ticker: “MOOO!”

We think that about says it all.
