What's Up With That? #38: You want hash browns with that?

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the $1.65 billion deal that made video site YouTube a part of the ever-growing Google empire took shape over breakfast at Denny's.

The Chron report states that YouTube co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen noshed on Grand Slam Breakfasts and chicken fingers with Google topkicks Eric Schmidt and Larry Page as they hammered out the megabuck merger.

Wait a second...

You own a company worth $1.65 billion, and you're eating at Denny's?

For the kind of dough Hurley, Chen, Schmidt, and Page are throwing around, they can come to my place for their next businessmen's outing, and I'll fix them a decent breakfast. I'll even make eggs Benedict with real hollandaise sauce, instead of that faux petrochemical Cheez Whiz crud Denny's slathers on theirs.

I will, of course, expect a sizable gratuity.

They (the cyber community) had dubbed the name of the merged 'You Tube' to 'Goo Tube' before the sale was confirmed. It’s a good thing that Google is named Google and not Boogle or we would have had the new 'Boob Tube'! But I cannot take credit for latter thought as the idea came from DL.

Heck, why didn't they just eat at Google. We've got three cafes that do breakfast...and much better breakfast than at Denny's.

As for elcharolastra's comment...well, all the meals at Google are free. And of very high quality. Calling Larry and Eric frugal about paying for food is really pretty funny.
