Hello! Hello! Hello!

I have a fun quiz for you. It might be tricky! It might seem simple!

Let's see who knows the answer. Will it be a Druid, Dragon, Grump or Goddess? Will it be a Mac or Bill or Billy or Buddy? Will it be somebody who hasn't had a day of fun in his life?

Who knows? The Shadow knows!

Here is the question: What is the largest corporation in the whole world?

Go!

Mr. Geek 2U!

<resisting urge to cheat by googling answer>

I smell a trick question, most people would guess one of the big oil companies, or a huge retailer, but I suspect something a bit trickier...

Maybe something like Unilever, a name many have not heard of, but it's the owner of literally hundreds of household brand names, there's probably a dozen or more of their products in your supermarket trolley.

I guess you Googled that today, and not over the weekend? [Wink]

P.S. My non-Google bet would definitely be of the Walmart/Unilever ilk.
Could also be GE or Siemens...or Halliburton. Right now, I CBA to search (I mean, it would take under 5 seconds, but that would be cheating...), so hopefully I'm either right, or someone else gets it! [Smile]

I think this is hard to have an answer for. In america ther is clear seperation between public and private and what they do. In other countries ( brunie, dubia) teh distinction between what is the staet and what is a corporation is less so distict. I would almost consider dubia a corporation.

Hello! Hello! Hello!

Boy! Do I have egg on MY face. I have some blueberry syrup, too!

Oh my, oh my. A friend told me it was China because they own all capital. And you know what?

I believed her, yes indeedy! She pulled the Woolite over my eyes.

It got all soapy and I could not see.

When I washed all the soap I looked it up. China is capitalist now!

They have lots and lots and lots and lots of corporations. Not just one.

So now, I do not know and I feel foolish, foolish foolish.

Sorry to all!

Have a great day! Don't get Woolite in your eyes!

Mr. Geek 2U!
