Mergers of two Book companies

Apparently today Random House and Penguin have merged... they will now be called "Penguin Random House".

Could have been worse..."Random Penguin house" sounds kinda weird though.

Or just "Random Penguin" - much more interesting.

Could have been Random House Penguin. Which would have been hilarious :D

I get some Japanese vibe out of this new name, however, yeaah, it doesn't sound very well.
+1 for Random Penguin as well

Wow. I haven't laughed this hard in a loooong time. I love the thought of it being named Random Penguin House or Random House Penguin... *falls off chair laughing*

You know, I kinda don't care what kind of books they're going to put out. Might have to buy a couple just for giggles. XDDDD
