    Groupon was offered $6 Billion by Google but they (Groupon) said Hell Fucking No

    So how did Google take? They just shrugged it off. Said no problem, we can build our own.

    In comes Google Offers.....

    Question is: Can Google pull this off (after all Buzz and Wave flopped really bad) and is Groupon going to regret not selling to Google?

    Only time will tell....
