Broad base Use. Creation of Conformity. Death to birds, bees, and possibly humanity.

"Hey!" Zuck cried as he read the label. "Roundup stole my disclaimer!"

"Negative," Google Assistant replied. "Facebook does not kill bees, except be an individual. Or maybe--To be, or not to be; No, wait, that was Hamlet."

"Hamlet, pig omelet," Zuck snorted. "I want beef! Cut em' from my cattle drive."

"Wow. You sound like a trail boss." Goggle Assistant noticed Zuck's cowboy hat. "What's up?"

"Roundup and me are the same Pale Rider, pard'ner." Zuck raised his shoulders. "But Roundup sounds cooler. Says what it means: roundup the whole world even if you have to kill it! That's what I want! If we change our name to Roundup, I might get a billion more likes! Branding is everything!"

"But there's no cattle involved."

"No cattle?" His cheeks flushed rosy pink as he fingered his hat. "Hell, I got me a virtual corral! I might change to Fence-book! If I get a hot poker and start branding their butts with giant Z's, users might go for it! Like cool-ass tattoos!"

If he could find a good golf course, he could water his horse, while he plays StarCraft II.
