(Newser) – A sarcastic Yahoo employee slammed the company in an email sent to Fortune today, taking aim at futile executives and lousy decision-making. In the wake of Yahoo's latest shakeup, "things could not be better," the email says: True, past "reorgs" were sparked by pointless executive shifts, but eight execs really did quit this week to be "with their families," and "as for the Google deal, HOORRAY!"

The unnamed worker goes on: “Now, you might be thinking that we employees—particularly those in Search—who have spent most of our waking hours trying to do battle with Google might in some way be disappointed that we are now getting into bed with the enemy. Au contraire! We love it! Nothing indicates a job well done better than outsourcing your own job to the competition.”
