Yahoo wants to sell you all its old Internet junk

Yahoo, as it turns out, is somewhat of a hoarder.

The Internet veteran recently stumbled upon a bunch of old domain names that it snatched up during the Internet's wonder years and now the tech company is looking to unload some of those site names for cash.

Yahoo will be hosting a week-long auction beginning Thursday to rid itself of its over 100 "premium domain names," the company said in a statement on Wednesday. There are only 29 listed right now, but more will be released throughout the week, Yahoo said.

Even though these site names have been sitting in Yahoo's attic--so to speak--for quite some time, they'll still cost you a pretty penny. Of the domain names currently listed, prices range from $1,000 to $1.5 million.

We took a look at some of the domain names up for grabs and got a good laugh.

Some of the "premium" site names Yahoo has listed include raging.com, pleasure.com, cyberjokes.com, finalcountdown.com and cursed.com.

The company also appears to have had an affinity for food- and sports-related domain names. Some of which include sandwich.com, Crackers.com, AV.com, Jockeys.com and Blogsport.com.

You can view more available domain names on its website.
