And while IAC (NSDQ: IACI) is selling off some of its assets to focus on the core, it is still bullish on its CollegeHumor franchise: the online comedy site has bought sports satire site SportsPickle, for an undisclosed though likely a small amount. Both sites are aimed at a young male demographic, hence a fit within IAC's ConnectedVentures media and e-commerce network.
