I could frequently distinguish the word YAHOO
, which was repeated by each of them several times: and although it was impossible for me to conjecture what it meant, yet while the two horses were busy in conversation, I endeavoured to practise this word upon my tongue; and as soon as they were silent, I boldly pronounced YAHOO
in a loud voice, imitating at the same time, as near as I could, the neighing of a horse; at which they were both visibly surprised; and the gray repeated the same word twice, as if he meant to teach me the right accent; wherein I spoke after him as well as I could, and found myself perceivably to improve every time, though very far from any degree of perfection.
Healthy cheerfulness and good spirits forming a part of the banquet, I could soak my crusts in the fountain with Le Sage's strolling player, and revel in their glad enjoyment: but sitting down with so many fellow-animals to ward off thirst and hunger as a business; to empty, each creature, his Yahoo
's trough as quickly as he can, and then slink sullenly away; to have these social sacraments stripped of everything but the mere greedy satisfaction of the natural cravings; goes so against the grain with me, that I seriously believe the recollection of these funeral feasts will be a waking nightmare to me all my life.

In July, Verizon and Yahoo
! entered into a definitive agreement under which Verizon will acquire Yahoo
's operating business for approximately USD 4.83bn in cash.
Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo
, said in a statement: "Yahoo
is a company that has changed the world, and will continue to do so through this combination with Verizon and AOL." She told a conference call that the agreement is "an exceptional outcome for Yahoo
