There has long been a rumor that W. R. Grace Co. was going to buy the Fuller Brush Co. and Mary Kay Cosmetics and then merge with the Hale Business Systems. This would result in the new mega-corporate entity known as . . . "Hale Mary Fuller Grace."
Don't forget the failed merger between Yahoo and Netscape.... Net'n'yahoo. It didn't work out because they were afraid they would have to relocate the headquarters ... to Tel Aviv.
There is a merger in the works involving Polygram Records, Warner Brothers, and Keebler. It will be called . . . Poly-Warner-Cracker.
Other possible mergers:
3M & Goodyear = mmmGood
John Deere & Abitibi-Price = Deere Abi
Zippo Manufacturing & Audi & Dofasco & Dakota Mining = Zip Audi Do Da
Honeywell & Imasco & Home Oil = Honey, I'm Home
Denison Mines & Alliance & Metal Mining = Mine, All Mine
3M & JC Penny & Canadian Opera Company = 3 Penny Opera
Knott's Berry Farm + National Organization of Women = Knott NOW
