On the Corner of Wilshire and Sepulveda
- Tuesday, May 10, 2005
A poor, downtrodden beggar stands on the corner of Wilshire and Sepulveda, not having much luck. Exasperated and hungry, he's scrawled the word "Beg" on a piece of cardboard. Hardly anyone pays any attention to him. A few passers-by drop him a couple of pennies.
Suddenly, he gets an idea. He picks up his sign and adds ".com" to the word "Beg." Within a few minutes, two venture capitalists roar to a stop at the intersection, tripping over each other to be the first to offer him a quarter of a million dollars for his site.
Pleased with his new-found wealth, the beggar decides to go one better. Flipping his cardboard sign over, he writes "e-Beg." Within fifteen minutes, Jerry Yang and Bill Gates pull up in limousines and ask to buy him out.
