Why bacon is the only advertising strategy you’ll ever need to sell your product

(Image via SomeEcards) One of our fellow lady geeks in the office came across Bakon Vodka, and while looking at their very catchy tagline we were enlightened by the realisation that the word “bacon” works in pretty much every brand tagline we can think of. So, whatever it is you’re selling, simply add bacon and…




WANT of the day: Warrior Gnome

As a general rule, I hate garden gnomes. They’re soppy, creepy, and most of them are plain ugly. That said, I do want an army of these super cute garden warrior gnomes for my backyard. The cat would be so freaked out.
