Things haven't gone well for AOL over the past 10 years, as the company has been hampered by little issues such as having a crappy service that no one wants to use. The good news for AOL is that its brain trust has finally figured out a way back to the big-time: Y'see, apparently the kids these days are into this thing called "social net-working," a new InterWebs craze that is apparently as popular as the so-called "electronic mails" were for AOL during its heyday. Why, social net-working is so popular that it's even rivaling the Google Machine! So to stay on the cutting edge of this vital new trend, AOL will decide to acquire Friendster, which everyone knows is the hippest and most swingingest social net-working website on the InterWebs. Analysts estimate that once the companies have merged they will have at least a dozen combined users in North America. What a juggernaut!
