Finally it's April 1 here in Denmark, last night I was had by the "hacked" waferbaby front page before I realized that yes... It's April 1.
This morning I snickered loudly at the well executed BoringBoring, where the suicide girl ads really look like suicidal teenage girls and the topic of each post could knock the edge off a packet of NoDoz. " Watch 10 years of PBS pledge drives, without the interesting programs" and " Watch Paint Dry"... oy...that's boring.
We're bound to see more as April 1 begins across the globe. Have a good one.
Lover #1: Oh baby baby I love you so much.
Lover #2: I love you too… brought to you by Monsanto.
Lover #1: What’s that?
Lover #2: I love you brought to you by Monsanto.
Love #1: But, what does that mean?
Lover #2: I love you brought to you by Monsanto.
Lover #1: Oh God no, what?…
Lover #2: Honey, I do love you, but now my love is sponsored by Monsanto.
Love #1: But why? I’m not into three-somes.
Claymore spotted this lovely iPaQ at expansys.com, which seems to belong to Peter Gibbons.
Quoted from the movie Office Space
Dom: Hello, Peter. What's happening? We need to talk about your TPS reports.
Peter Gibbons: Yeah. The coversheet. I know, I know. Uh, Bill talked to me about it.
Dom: Yeah. Uh, did you get that memo?
Peter Gibbons: Yeah. I got the memo. And I understand the policy. The problem is, I just forgot this one time. And I've already taken care of it so it's not even a problem anymore.
Brandsuicide, the people who hate intrusive pop-ups and layover ads rabidly have created a T-shirt for all of us who agree. If you want to be really evil for xmas, buy this for a friend who is stuck at a job designing pop-ups - that is what I'm going to do. The reason santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls like me live.
Brandsuicide are also behind the aptly named World Anti-Annoying Advertising Association [WAAAA], which we fancied so much that we promptly joined WAAAA. Ironically brandsuicides site has been comment spammed by some idiot who just doesn't get it. Santa won't bring spammers any gifts for xmas, he said. He's too busy eating cookies at my house. ;)
Every so often you stumble onto a really bad brand names, some universially so, like Soma® the codeine-based pain reliever. It makes us think of Brave New World's happy pills, or An intoxicating or hallucinogenic beverage, used as an offering to the Hindu gods like the dictionary says.
Still, It can't hold a candle to the candybar in Sweden called Plopp which makes all the UK'ers laugh, just like the Danish candy Spunk does. Thanks to Sisil.net we have photographic evidence of what we think might be the worst brand name ever....
Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community.
The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and complications from repeated pokes to the belly. He was 71.
Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin.
Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, Califfornia Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch.
As we discovered in the comments of OOH Miller lite Maxim ad where the dog sniffs a woman's butt, that image has already existed all around the web. Hmmm. is this yet another case of creatives taking their visual ideas from web memes? Either way, it's funny.
Frank Lingua, president and CEO of Dissembling Associates, is the nation's leading purveyor of buzzwords, catch phrases and clichés for people too busy to speak in plain English.
"Business Finance" contributing editor Dan Danbom interviewed Lingua in his New York City office.

After a long, hard and yet successful career, a cinematographer dies and goes up to the pearly gates. It's a busy day in heaven, long line at the gate, and Saint Peter seems to be taking his sweet ass holy time
A guy is clearing out the attic of an old house and comes across a box
with a label that says: MAGIC LAMP. FOR AGENCY SUITS ONLY.
"What's an agency suit?", the guy thinks to himself. "What the heck, I've never tried a magic lamp before. I'll just go ahead anyway."
