Yahoo CEO Lays Off Workers, Not Swear Words

Carol Bartz, Yahoo's recently installed CEO, is a woman of many charms, not the least of which is her gutter mouth. She dropped the F-bomb today while announcing Yahoo's sucky earnings (and more layoffs).

To no one's shock, Yahoo's ad-dependent business struggled amidst the worst advertising market in recent history. The company is laying off another 700 employees — though, thanks to Yahoo's lousy cost controls and poor planning, they'll probably hire that many people in a couple of months. We wonder how long it will take Bartz to figure out that Yahoo's business is thoroughly broken, and not in a way that can be fixed with a few well-chosen curse words.
