Wee Wee Wee!

2 Sep


Geico puts a new twist to the old nursery ryhme of the little piggy who cried “wee! wee! wee!” all the way home.
 

How can a  piggy going wee wee wee  amuse me so. Because it’s so darn funny and cute. Now if only  Sisi could get a piggy friend.

What do you think?

Scary Movies

25 Aug

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again to anyone who will listen to me Netflix is awesome! What would I do without it? Have you seen that they will even give you suggestions on Instant Watching (streaming) based on your Instant Watching history. Well here is what they suggested for a scary movies.

Needless to say they looked to frightening for me to watch.

Human Vending Machine

4 Aug

Main aritcle on MSN’s front page  Unusual Vending Machine Foods Around the World.  Hmmm….how very intersting Pizza and Fries from a vending machine, this I have to see for myself. So I clicked over to  Youtube to see how The Pizza  and French Fries vending machines work. But found this vending machine much more intersting and super hilarious.

Missy Missing Email Thread

14 Jul

I know how it feels to lose a pet, last year my little “Pepper”, Paprika’s sister, was stolen from the office. I searched everywhere and did everything humanly possible. Called all vets, clinics, animal shelters and pet stores to alert them about my loss and to have them post my flyers. I made large posters and walked the streets at night hanging them up, offered a reward, posted on craigslist, LA Times, Twitter…..etc….. you get the idea. After several months with no good or bad news I gave up. To this day all I can ask and hope for is that she was taken by someone who loves and cares for her.

So, you see, I do know it’s sad and heartbreaking to lose a pet but I must admit the following email exchange I just read is brilliantly funny. Shannon Walkley (the secretary) has lost her cat Missy and has asked David Thorne I believe to be the graphic designer to help make a lost pet poster. Make sure you read it from start to finish, seriously, just read this in its entirety, from the top.

Enjoy

Hi
I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not to busy you could make a poster for me. It has to be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my suburb this afternoon.

Dear Shannon,
That is shocking news.
Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.
Regards, David.

Dear Shannon,
It’s a design thing. The cat is lost in the negative space.

Dear Shannon,
Having worked with designers for a few years now, I would have assumed you understood, despite our vague suggestions otherwise, we do not welcome constructive criticism. I don’t come downstairs and tell you how to send text messages, log onto Facebook and look out of the window. I have amended and attached the poster as per your instructions.
Regards, David.

yeah can you do the poster or not? I just want a photo and the word lost and the telephone number and when and where she was lost and her name. Not like a movie poster or anything stupid. I have to leave early today. If it was your cat I would help you. Thanks.

Dear Shannon,
I don’t have a cat. I once agreed to look after a friend’s cat for a week but after he dropped it off at my apartment and explained the concept of kitty litter. I have attached the amended version of your poster as per your detailed instructions.
Regards, David.

I know, but that one is cute. As Missy has quite possibly met any one of several violent ends, it is possible you might get a better cat out of this. If anybody calls and says “I haven’t seen your orange cat but I did find a black and white one with its hind legs run over by a car, do you want it?” you can politely decline and save yourself a costly veterinarian bill.
Regards, David.

How To Trick People Into Thinking Your Good Looking

12 Jul

I’ve been seeing this  youtube video pop up everywhere on the internet. I’ll admit that I wasn’t the one who first discovered it but  Gina Grad from the PGP had it on her FB Wall then I saw it on other blogs.  I thought it was a bit funny and entertaining. Love the music she used in her video a classic Rick Astley song.  So just in case you’re not like me who spends almost half a day on the internet (cause you know you’ve got a life) and haven’t had the chance to see the video. I thought I would share it here. Enjoy!

And so she says:

“Glasses are for Douche bags”

“I like colors like black cause it says I’m a whore”

“Now it’s time to put of fake whore lashes and cartoon eyebrows”

“I like this one cause it makes me look like a street walker”

“Go get yourself a job that’s super degrading”

“There’s no cure for ugly”

On a side note I wonder if I should follow her advice?
