This is a satirical 'year in review' here are some clips:

* January
In response to AOL's proposed buyout of Time Warner and Ted Turner's Turner Broadcasting, Yahoo announces it will acquire actress Jane Fonda. AOL labels the acquisition "sloppy seconds."

Nearly 92 percent of respondents to an online survey say they have been on the Internet at least once, while 6 percent says they have never been online but hope to do so within the next six months. The remaining 2 percent in the survey, conducted by ZDNet at its Web site, say they have never been online, and have no intention of doing so.

* September
Morningstar analyst Laura Pavlenko Lutton actually issues a report saying Priceline "has strong potential and is probably a good long-term bet." Meanwhile, First Albany analyst Ullas Naik puts out a "strong buy" on CMGI at $35. Both analysts refuse to divulge what they are sniffing.

* December
Linux continues to make inroads in the operating system market by winning support from companies such as IBM and Dell. Microsoft appeals.

Doing my part to lighten the mood.
