Lol, you made my day sir! Thank you.
Delicious cupcakes on me, everyone.
I bought 102,000 of them from some bakery in the UK, for 75% off, and the owner was not happy to see me when I picked them up.
Many business owners saw what went down and have basically said 'Wankin' F**kin' Groupon.'
I thought a "groupon" was something you could expect if a bunch of TSA agents was heading for you?
No joke. Just noting that all of the recent IPOs have been Fukushima-level toxic (including some of the government-sponsored retreads).
The bastard child of one Darth Blankfein.
Oops. Better become an Obama campaign contributor rather soon.
Groupon is headed to faillure, the reason is simple, it has way to many competitors now. It is very simple to copy the groupon concept.

Fixed it for ya!
The angle of the chart dangle is directly proportional to the attractiveness of the group-on menage a trois.
Got some uglies in this orgy.
Hook Line and Sphincter ( ! )J
TRIVIA Question: what are the first 4 words in the song "set fire to the rain"??
a business model based on customer email spamming remains unviable.
"The government sponsored retreads" - You owe me my fresh coffee and a dry clean bill.
Still laughing so Hard the others think Im on Meds. - fuck that is ging to go into my Sarc/ vocab
Huh, I thought it was a polygamist's female hygienic sanitary product.
But don't worry, she'll make it up on volume..
What an idiot. Why would she sell any cupcakes at a loss, even at a 50% discount she could of ended up being profitable. Some people these days have no brain.
BTW did the $40 original price tag on a dozen cupcakes suprise anyone else?
she had a sugar high !
If only she had watched these videos...

90% discount this black friday
We were just kidding on the whole IPO thingy. Sorry bout that.
maybe goog can buy them when they are half off
"this symbol expires december 31st 2011"
For the benefit of those of us who are not traders, can someone please explain the significance of this?
Like a Coupon haha
I see. Very droll.
This is my definition of "social justice."
edit: And forget subtle "schadenfreude" I'm giddy watching this thing sink. I'm only sorry that people were able to unload and exit this on day one. Literally makes me sick.
True enough, but I'm not so sure about the social justice tag. Their employees are heading for social security.
by "people", I assume you mean the banks that manufactured a supply shortage and were able to force the price higher at the open?
Yes. Also lets not forget the principles who were looking for an ejection seat since they realized they had no business model. Everyone involved, including the flippers and even the retail investors who get their daily dose of CNBC advice, knew it was a quick pump and dump with no value. I'm actually surprised at the zeal with which people pretend to be surprised about this.
I don't think "Scahdenfreude" carries a particular quanitification of the level of joy in other people's suffering. I think you could be giddy with schadenfreude. I know I often am.
Black Adder +infinity
Indeed ... never tire of it!
The Bernank gets a maths lesson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K71MckOTt1M
How do you say Shadenfreude in Austrian? Let's ask POTUS.
He doesn't speak Austrian. But he does speak Double Dutch.
New offer: Buy 2 shares of GRPN for the price of 1!!
Buy 2 packs of Kools and get a share of GRPN
This is because DSK sold a huge number of shares once he realized the company is actually NOT named Grope On.
That's Hermain Cain's new startup for after his bid fails next Nov.
NEIN NEIN NEIN!
Merkel is a Cain fan?!
if only there was a company named Coerced Cocksucking
How many groupon coupons for groupon stock does it take to get back to the IPO?
negative 5 Billion Groupons (market cap is that much higher than real value)
The people that hyped this ...have made their money...now its time for you to lose yours....this is the IPO market now...insiders win...New York Bankers win....you lose...
And people still keep playing and wonder why their investments are stuck in neutral. Sooner or later, people will stop playing.
They will be in front of CONgress first thing Monday, so the little investor loses twice.
"the Amerikan people need Groupon in these tough times, that is why we are asking for a $30 billion bailout"
$17.40? For like, 1 share? How many shares are there in circulation? 10?
Groupon sounds like a sex act for swingers. If it were , I'm sure this chart would be inverted.
In other word's, a clusterfuck ?
Rename the company Groupengropen. Couldn't hurt the share price.
The movie your avatar was in rocked.
I just checked the stock price prior to coming back to this site, and laughed out loud here at work.
Looks like my 401k over 10 yrs.
Group on for a big warm hug. That is probably all any Groupon holder can hope for. Next will be a "kick you while you are down".
Must have missed a coupon payment.
Looks like a good stock FOR ME TO POOP ON
Robo won't be having a happy thanksgiving over this turkey
bwa ha ha ha ha ha
Groupon offer: M.F. Global account 70% OFF
Similarly available in your city - soon.
"Corzine takes CEO position at Groupon and will diversify the company into the euro financial centers"- Rueters
"Groupon Changes Name to Poopon." Ceo Corzine states the name change to better reflect the position of the company.- AP
"Groupon Offers Coupons up to 75% off for Shares". GP press release.
"Groupon Takes back donated turkey, named Liberty, from WHite House"- WH press release. Obama didn't mind because he prefers pig meat with alot of lipstick.
Slopes should be very good for skiing this year. Just be very careful for the rocky bottom.
buy units in tamp-on , for your bleeding in groupon
had i seen this before posting, i wouldn't even have bothered. Bully sir.
Non-subscription GRPN IPO 'day' buyers & GRPN employees with frozen stock are steaming mad right now.
Oh, sorry, I don't have any joke.
What was that about low bearing fruit?
Low Hanging Fruit, JA
Ya...'twas a mixed metaphor on 2.0 tech stocks. Nevermind.
Haha, that company will be bankrupt next. Yes screw over all your employees, that's a good way to keep top talent. Once you do something like that even the people that are the top talent assume you are fucking them over too since you don't care about the lower levels and they will bounce once their stock vests.
They should have gotten explicit government support like GM so this wouldn't happen........
Sing it "Groupon....dot com"
Po down Panky, Po down!
Morgan Stanley down 20% in a week for leading the scam IPO.
Karma is a BITCH.
Over/under on GRPN hitting the pink sheets:12 months. I will take the under.
That's going to be a crowded trade.
You seen the premium's on even 1 month puts on that bitch? It's ridiculously crowded already. Has been since the IPO. I got a few on the ramp up but damn, not as cheap as BAC was or JEF.
(paste): Presented with no comment - none at all, not even a wry schadenfreude-ridden smirk. GRPN -13% at $17.40
is tyler bluffing?
Sometimes, a picture (graph) is indeed worth a thousand wordz! :>D
The karma would be better if MS collapsed.
I almost feel guilty for never using their service.
So today is a bad day to buy a turkey?
Insert [HAW HAW] here.
Congress sold their friends and family shares obviously
Dr Schadendraud says:
Thank you. When I saw the stock chart, I thought to myself I need to see Bonzai's chart to get a true picture of future value.
We are already down in the churn zone. ;-)
Don't ever change.
That is all, no joke needed
Twas a foregone conclusion that Babylon of the coupon would end in a blackswan. From Taiwan to Milan, every stock Don Juan sat bids withdrawn by the pre-dawn. Tis nobler to poop-on than to try-on a position in Groupon.
check out CNBC website. It looks like a shit Las Vegas Casino advertising website.
All their advertising looks like shitty Las Vegas advertising.
JEF is a buy buy buy!!!!
Or is that just a dead bounce?
#1 I got 10k Groupon ipo and flipped for 5 points
#2 Our friendship expires in 2 min
Groupon's stock price aside, it's a handy little website for cheapskates, of which there are likely to be many more in the coming months and years. Sure, IPO's tend to get shat on, but it's not like the company will fall off the face of the Earth just yet.
We feel your pain Ayrton. Sorry to hear about your loss.
Who is your broker? I am trying to locate additional shares to short.
Groupon's stock price aside, it's a handy little website for cheapskates, at the expense of small & medium sized businesses, of which there are not likely to be many more in the coming months and years. Sure, IPO's tend to get shat on, and the small and medium sized businesses get shafted by cunts who act like spoilt children, don't add return trade and put off actually loyal customers, but it's not like the company will fall off the face of the Earth just yet, it will attempt to leech off desperate small and medium sized businesses getting creamed in the economic downturn like the vulture it really is.
Groupon is nothing more than a polished turd
Ahhh!, where have I seen references to clean turds before?
"Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional illogical liberal minority & rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous liberal press which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."
Maybe a buy at $5. Seems pretty generous though.
Long-term this business could work.
"Long-term this business could work."
I know, right?
I'm still rooting for homegrocer.com.
Well, it makes a heck of a lot more sense to bet on the long-term prospects of this at $5 than $32.
At $5 it has a market cap of about $3 billion. I think that´s a reasonable bet.
I still can't figure what went wrong with pets.com. I mean, asking customers to pay $25 to ship a $18 bag of dog food sounds like a great business model to me.
Groupon Pooped on.
Low-float turds sink faster.
when is this optionable?
Please, please, please someone tell me that the State of New Jersey didn't invest any of my pension fund in this dog.
...aaand its gone...All gone.
what the hell do you care, you are backstopped by the NJ taxpayers (of course that is until they are broke or all move)
what the hell was Google thinking when they offered billions for this crap
They were thinking they needed a way to spend all that money the CIA gives them to gather information.
They were probably looking at their traffic numbers and pull on the internet against groupon's and laughing their asses off.
They just wanted the email addresses to consolidate this POS into Google Deals w/ Facebook. Plain and simple.
Can't wait for the icanhazcheezburger ipe. Because nothing says click-throughs like funny-things-my-cat-does.
Small Print: Group-on not redeemable for cash.
Q: From whom does Groupon get its money?
A: From merchants who are so desperate for for business that they are willing to sell at 75% off iist to anybody with a mouse.
Now thats funny.
No soupon for groupon!!!
Pardon me ? Would you happen to have any Grey Groupon ?
ipo now stands for initial public offing
"Instigating Public Offal"
"Immediate Public Ordure"
"Inveigling Public Obituary"
I could go all day on these...
Next stop GRPN.PK
Well, why not advertise Las Vegas. Nevada in a depression, outside the Vegas strip it is a disaster. And they will line up at the stores. Amazing.
Zero Hedge called GRPN first at 30, I remember that. Kudos.
The Grope's-On you!
somebody is madly trying to find a fuckwits anonymous meeting to attend
just think of "clap off""...
New Blackhole discovered in the Universe: Groupon!
Worthless coupons are what hyperinflationary regimes hand out to their starving citizens...
Is Groupon Shares not an anagram for;
Incredible Black Friday stock market deals coming to you!!!
Groupon's share earnings simply offal!
Gropeon's IPO motto:
You cannot polish a turd, but you can roll one in glitter!!!!
Where's that asshole Robot Trader?
I’m thinking Groupon was created for ski jumpers in training.
I see Groupon's slide as another big win for the occupiers!
