Y is for Yahoo!

| May 5, 2014

Every time I visit Yahoo! to check my mail I find myself distracted by their pathetic articles. Even though I know it’s a waste of time, I can’t help myself. I can’t check my email until I have read all the headlines of their articles and browsed the ones I found most interesting. Even though I usually find the headline summarizes the article and there is nothing new in them. The articles are so random it is enticing. Some of today’s articles included “Frog in Fishes Throat,” “Ghastly and Great looks at the Met Gala,” and “Young blood aids old mice.” I almost want to laugh at these headlines. Sometimes, I notice the same article has been used on another day with a different headline. I wonder who writes these pieces? Who designs the page? Why can’t I stop looking at even though I know it’s silly?
