Companies do a lot of silly things. This column will highlight a few stock-related stories that would make Darwin's head spin.
1. You may already be a winner, loser
Earth to Yahoo!: The $47.5 billion offer you got earlier this month -- hailing not from Nigeria, but from Redmond -- was real. You blew it.
2. Make it a glass of Plain White Iced Tea and a bowl of All-American Green Eggs
I don't know about you, but I'd rather see emo rockers strumming six-strings and singing about angst instead of whipping out spatulas and cookbooks.
3. Roses are red, Iomega scrap is cobalt blue
The upshot? 1-800-Flowers will provide coupons for 15% off a future purchase. The downside? Before heading out with your toasted copier for the sake of that coupon, know that you'll still be paying for 85% of a purchase that you may not have been planning to make. Ahhh, a green thumb in more ways than one.
4. Lights, camera, squint
I've got an idea. Wait a year and save some of those kiosks for the next 1-800-Flowers electronic equipment recycling drive.
5. If at first you don't succeed, try and fail again
