Grenade Whistle

WSJ: Microsoft, Nokia Flirted With RIM:

Microsoft Corp. and Nokia Corp. in recent months flirted with the idea of making a joint bid for Research In Motion Ltd., according to people familiar with the matter.

Really? Microsoft and Nokia flirted with RIM? This RIM?
Like the way Vinny, Pauly and the Situation flirt with grenades to bring home at the end of the night?
I think we need a grenade whistle any time a company gets close to RIM.
Do Microsoft and Nokia have technology beer goggles on that make RIM appear like a valuable acquisition?
