By Any Other Name



Orlaith, from Dublin ad agency, The Public House, writes:

“We’ve found a way to recycle rejected ideas and deliver some client affection at the same. Taking a year’s worth of rejected ideas, sketches and scripts, we’ve carefully created custom bouquets for our clients. While plenty of ideas made it through unscathed this year, it felt like a good use of ideas that didn’t make the cut. Call it sentimental rather than scorned.”

Fair play, in fairness.

          The lady who pierced my nose was a great behemoth of a woman who punched me in the nose then pierced it and laughed so hard that the ground shook beneath my feet.

            He actually was a *bit* out of order there. ‘You’re wife is a tacky vacuous moron. Hahahaha’

            I don’t know anything about Preston really, but don’t think he was left with much choice but to walk off the set that time. He was put into a no win situation, but it wouldn’t have looked great if he had stayed seated & did nothing.

            Ditto. I know he sang in a not completely terrible band and married someone who appeared on a reality show with him. The line, iirc, that got him walking was when Amstell was just reading quotes out of her book and he broke him when he said ‘The Daily Mail shoot made me feel really posh and upmarket’. The implication there being that his wife is a fool for thinking that. That was quite mean spirited and considering he was going through a divorce with her at the time, I wouldn’t have blamed him for throwing a punch on his way out.

    Valentine’s Day. Seen as a license to be a little bit creepy by men everywhere.*

    *Not all men. Not literally everywhere. Valentine’s Day can be nice if used correctly. You may lose your home if you do not keep up with repayments.

    No doubt those are all the best ideas that clients are too mediocre or bland to approve.

    Irish clients are incredibly unadventurous.

    wow .. thats the most passive aggressive sentiment ive ever seen. “remember all the ideas you rejected? well we kept them .. and here .. we’re returning them to you in the form of flowers. . . dont knock our ideas again or next year the flowers will be made from your skin”

      it’s very slow in here today. i can’t remember the last time we had some actual work to do. earlier on one of the girls scrunched up a page and threw it in the bin. i said hey mary, that looks a bit like a flower and suddenly all the other girls joined in scrunching up paper. it’s getting a bit crazy now and i’m getting palpitations. gonna have a fruit corner to calm myself down a bit, and maybe a crunchie. and some crisps. and a diet coke.
