    Here's the definition of a junk bond.
    And here's the definition of a siren song.

    Does it make any more sense to you now, especially if you combine it with the contents of the blog you posted the link to?

    Re: Sing The Siren Song

    For the origin - which the writer may not have known about - go here: Siren - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    (I think the Br Eng use of 'siren' to mean 'klaxon' may be related too. Come to think of it, this sort of 'siren' may have been an intentional reference on the part of the writer.)
