EToys R.I.P.

We knew this day was coming. I hope you all received your orders.

Retailer eToys Will File for Ch. 11
(AP) - EToys, the beleaguered Internet retailer that has seen its stock go from Wall Street darling to the dumps, said Monday it will file for bankruptcy protection within the next five to 10 days. The company had liabilities of $274 million as of Jan. 31 - a debt that was unlikely to be erased even if the company finds a buyer, eToys said in a statement. EToys said it will close its Web site by March 8.

R.I.P. is short for RIPoff artists.

I hated dealing with this company and have nothing but cheers and cheers when I heard they went under.

I know its mean to say that, and also people will lose jobs, but hey if they pulled me through the ringer on a handful of occasions, then "whats good for the goose is good for the gander...."
