So here’s the deal: I’m going to keep posting old stuff from my newsgroup until I either run out — and I have over 500 old posts saved — or until we get a good conversation going in the comments.
This one is way out of sequence; I skipped ahead a couple of years. It’s also out of date, unsurprisingly.
September 1, 2008:
So I hold stock in a company called Triarc, which owns Arby’s — they used to own other stuff, but now it’s just Arby’s. They’re planning a merger with Wendy’s, and it needs stockholder approval, so I got this big fat mailing I was looking at just now.
Some of the stuff from the comparable companies I find fascinating.
Did you know Applebee’s is now owned by International House of Pancakes?
Did you know that Hard Rock Cafe International is owned by the Seminole Indians?
