Need a laugh?

I'm not a big fan of e-mail forwards, but marketing-related spoofs always make me smile. Here are a few chuckles for your holiday weekend!
  • Name that Campaign: Ever get the feeling that fundraising campaigns seem formulaic? Save some trouble when branding your next campaign and visit the North Charles Street Design Organization's "Name that Campaign" tool to mix and match classic clich├ęs.

  • Make My Logo Bigger Cream: Who needs designers? This infomercial advertises "a clinically proven logo-enhancing formula, now in an easy-to-apply cream." But wait! There's more! Find out all of the design tools YOU can get for only three easy payments of $29.99!

  • Fake AP Stylebook: This Twitter feed provides all kinds of politically incorrect advice for journalists. One "useful" tweet for us grad school editors:
    When referring to someone with a Ph.D. as "doctor" immediately follow it with "but, you know, not a REAL doctor.
  • Web Site Story: For those of you who often ponder the degree of how heavily the Web has infiltrated our lives (or those of our target audiences), watch this College Humor video to see it lived as a Broadway musical.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
