Things That Made Me Laugh Today

If there’s one debate that I find sooooo 1991 that I refuse to get into, it’s the Mac Versus PC debate. Both have their strengths in some ways and both suck in other ways. When I worked in traditional publishing, I was the odd guy out with my PC. Back then and now, I would readily concede that a Mac would probably have been much better for what I was doing. To this day, though, since I’ve seldom operated a Mac, I find the operating system a bit odd. And I have seen Macs, when they “decide” to get flaky, get really flaky. Thus that’s why I find this video quite funny, not because I really believe Macs suck. (Flash 6 required.)

(Anti) Marketing
I’ve made it clear before that I despise marketing, and that I’m not too proud of the fact I have a degree in “public relations.” Hence this joke, forwarded to me by e-mail today, made me laugh.

Subject: Marketing defined
The buzz word in today’s business world is MARKETING. However, people often ask for a simple explanation of “Marketing.” So here it is.

¤ You’re a woman and you see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and say, “I’m fantastic in bed.” That’s Direct Marketing.

¤ You’re at a party with a bunch of friends and see a handsome guy. One of your friends goes up to him and pointing at you says, “She’s fantastic in bed.” That’s Advertising.

¤ You see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and get his telephone number. The next day you call and say, “Hi, I’m fantastic in bed.” That’s Telemarketing.

¤ You see a guy at a party, you straighten your dress. You walk up to him and pour him a drink. You say, “May I,” and reach up to straighten his tie, brushing your breast lightly against his arm, and then say, “By the way, I’m fantastic in bed.” That’s Public Relations.

¤ You’re at a party and see a handsome guy. He walks up to you and says, “I hear you’re fantastic in bed.” That’s Brand Recognition.

¤ You’re at a party and see a handsome guy. He fancies you, but you talk him into going home with your friend. That’s a Sales Rep.

¤ Your friend can’t satisfy him so he calls you. That’s Tech Support.

¤ You’re on your way to a party when you realize that there could be handsome men in all these houses you’re passing. So you climb onto the roof of one situated towards the center and shout at the top of your lungs, “I’m fantastic in bed!” That’s Junk Mail.

¤ You are at a party, and this well-built man walks up to you and gropes your breast and grabs your ass. That’s the Governor of California!
