A “one-of-a-kind Internet original” is for sale in the antiques section of Craigslist as a spoof ad has appeared offering the sale of Yahoo for $8 billion.
The ad says the company is in “good-to-fair condition but is showing some signs of wear” but that it could be “easily restored in the hands of the right person.”
Recent reports have pegged Verizon as a leading contender in the possible acquisition of the technology company.
CEO Marissa Mayer and Yahoo News anchor Katie Couric are pictured in the Craigslist ad, which lists a total package that includes such things as:
- 1 billion users, more or less
- Web email system (now 62% spam free!)
- Bottomless archive of Kim Kardashian photos
- Flickr & Tumblr
- A really nice cafeteria
