Sure, it's kind of old news (which is my speciality) — though, to the their credit there is a couple-week lead time on comic strips. Sports-focused daily Tank McNamara looks to be spending this week on Tiger Woods' nonapology NIke ad.

Could be the first mention of Wieden+Kennedy in a syndicated newspaper strip, but also kinda like shooting fish in a barrel. Or bogeying an easy par 2 off the back nine with an iron ... or, whatever, yeah, I've never even picked up a golf club.

Lance Baxter, a.k.a D.C. Douglas, the voice of the GEICO commercials has been fired after insulting tea parties. Yep. FreedomWorks Bullies GEICO To Axe Voice Over Actor.

Los Angeles actor, D.C. Douglas, says he was dropped from the upcoming GEICO "Shocking News" campaign after a group of Tea Party members harassed him and the insurance giant over a private voicemail the actor left for FreedomWorks. Matt Kibbe, President and CEO of FreedomWorks, posted Mr. Douglas' cell phone number in a blog post on biggovernment.com, instructing readers to "Feel free to contact (him)… call his employer too. Let them know that you…are now in the market for car insurance." The next day, GEICO held auditions to replace Mr. Douglas' voice on the campaign.

Does this mean that the GEICO geckos are teabaggers?

@RGA tweeted the the scariest location based iPhone app, ever. I promptly had a coughing fit laughing.

The WK London crew have made it all the way to Paris now. Conclusion, drivers named Fritz always have lead foot.

The cringe-worthy Leo Burnett film of them lip-dubbing to "I'm so exited" that was tweeted around like wildfire yesterday has been removed from youtube due to a copyright claim from Leo Burnett. They are no longer exited.

@Heisholt tweeted that TBWA\OSLO made http://www.creativetrashback.com - where creative people & companies can donate & share their creative trash for recycling. Clever.

Ad age reports on volacano-stories, not only does the flight ban strand ad execs from DDB in Stockholm, it also shows which airlines know how to help a fellow man with the food court owners at JFK and British Airways winning the biggest goodwill points. Take notes, Delta.

The producers of that fantastic film "Downfall" are getting sick of the subtitle meme and want them taken off youtube, stepping up their efforts to get these subtitle jokes off the web. Please kill that trend already. If you haven't seen the film yet, do rent it, Bruno Ganz portrayal of Hitler is fantastic.

Also, the twitter cat fight between @spencerpratt and @perezhilton was epic today. Hiss hiss meow!

I'll admit it, I like the crazy that these guys have. It's a turn-on. By jolly, if you're gonna start a building project you have to finish it. Even if you have to get a little creative along the way.

We know some things that are in the book, that is the D&AD book. In Ambient both HBO's cube and Jung Von Matt's flyvertising are in the book. The "liverpool wall" for Virgin Trains created by Elvis Communications is also in the book - the poster was actually a large digital screen, and interactive in that a copywriter watched who walked past and wrote messages tailored to them and the situations. Lines included "We're faster than that number 45 bus", "Hey roadsweeper guy, we get to London in a tidy 2 hours and 7 minutes" and "...any marriage proposals?"

Canvas, Cape town and GreatOdds.co.za demonstrate "beating the odds" with a family of redheads. This red headed family of nine has one baby with black hair, but really, the odds of two parents with the mutated MC1R gene to have a redheaded child is actually 1 in 4. (Note that blondes and brunettes can have the mutated MC1R gene.)
