Microsoft Gets the Girl After All

And by "the girl" I mean that sassy vixen Yahoo, which has been towing it mercilessly by the nose for the last three months.

All it cost was a few more dollars of dignity. Was that so hard, Big Spender?

My guess is, the indiscriminate flirting drove Steve Ballmer mad with lust.

I'm still holding out for final confirmation that the merger is agreed upon and final.

But I'm glad we're getting closer. The drama is exhausting.

Thanks for pointing to the story, linked to you here:

Uh oh. The breaking news has broken again. Just saw Scoble tweet that Microsoft decided to call it off:

Oh, good. More insider news from NYT, which is exactly where we derived the initial merger story. Thanks!!!

pthbbt. Where's the story on your failure to post a URL with your intriguing one-letter name? TechCrunch had the best coverage yesterday, anyhow.

Tweet, Twitter, Scoblizer, Techcrunch, Gizmodo, Facebook, Calacanis, deliciousspelledfunny, you young'ns really know how to waste your time. It really pays to have a stream of crap flowing to your cell phone so you can smugly beat the NYT reporter by 10 minutes. Get off the carousel.
