There's a thought-provoking article over at The Telegraph regarding a purported potential 12 billion Euro bid by Diageo (BV, Sterling, Guinness, Smirnoff, Tanqueray, etc etc etc) for LVMH's spirits and wine portfolio (Moet & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Krug, Hennessy, Chalone, Glenmorangie, Château D'Yquem, etc etc etc). Yet there's also news over at Forbes that LVMH has strongly denied that they are considering this offer. Well! I say that's a relief, because it means—hah!—I can now counter with my own bid, which will include at least $1,500, one pair of used but high-quality cowboy boots, and a 1993 Volvo with 200,000 miles on it.

Oh wait—rats, I already gave the Volvo to charity. Never mind.
