Google puts in $4.5 million offer
It has just been announced that Google has put in an all stock offer to purchase "The Glaze Free-Trade Society" for an estimated $4.5 million dollars. "We really see the upside potential for this company and feel it would be a win win, considering both of our corporate cultures consider openness and the free sharing of information to be vital to global cooperation and the betterment of mankind" said a Google co- founder Sergey Brin.
"In this economic climate, I thought that this was the best thing to do for our share holders considering our balance sheet and the pressures from global interests that are shrinking our market share" said John Britt, founder and bon vivant of Mitchell county. " We are only interested in sharing glaze secrets that have been held for centuries by the wealthy glaze hoarders to oppress the recipeless, and this practice has held artist's back for thousands of years. Without this merger I don't know if we could have held on with the pressure from thousands of artist's blogs that clog the internet. They are simply giving secrets away", said Mr. Britt, as we caught up with him an Asheville Best Buy loading up his cart with overpriced Apple products that he had previously been unable to purchase. "Life it good Trolls!" said Britt as he drove off in his new red Prius.
Also, involved in the trade was the hugely popular NC Clay Club Blog which will now be loaded with advertisements but not to worry, the endless streaming of mindless chatter and shitty videos will continue unabated.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
