Facebook buys out Buff Enterprises!!

G'day all! Buff Staysail here! Buff by name and Buff by nature!!

Put the amber nectar on ice, the next rounds on Buff!! I knew that one day Buff's boat would come in and ma would be proved wrong!!

Cast your mind back to 2011 when your's truly came up with Buff's Brilliant Buoys (TM) - put a vending machine on a buoy so you can get a cold beer when ever you wanted it out on the water under the hot sun (not much danger of that in pom land of course).

There'd even be an offshore version with wifi to allow the likes of JP to download GRIBs (plus of course keep the wine cool).

Well it turns out that that tech giant Facebook is looking for a way to connect the world up to what ever it is it does (haven't got round to signing up yet though ma is always going on about it).

And they want to buy Buff Enterprises to cover the oceans!!!

This is huge. I must be loaded now or something - just look at What's Up? (Ed: you mean WhatsApp)

I'm off for a celebratory beer and you're all invited!!

This is Buff Staysail, zillionaire, over but most definitely not out!!

Updated: oh dear, I've just had a look at the email that Buff received and it was actually a spoof from his mum trying to trick him into joining Facebook so she can keep track of him.

Sorry Buff, better luck next year.

Hmm Buff Enterprises sounds like it was run out of Greek street in the 70's by Charlie Hendal and Mr Laughing Spam Fritter and delivered in plain brown wrappers apparently

That sounds all too plausible: I shall have to check Buff's CV
