    And don't forget the music: a catchy little tune with three notes in the entire song, sounds like it was written by an optimistic hipster.

    Like Aaron Rodgers and that ridiculous pornstache he was sporting at the beginning of the year?

    • The toys we got in Cracker Jacks as kids are now considered choking hazards.
      I dunno. We turned out ok. <twitch twitch>

      • I saw an internet joke once it was something along the lines of a parent back in the 60's: Mom brings the kid, puts him in the back seat, dad lights up a victory cigarette because he's got a son, drive home.
        Parents now: Mom straps the baby into the baby seat, blankets everywhere, stroller packed in the back, checking on the kid every 2 seconds, carries him into the house like he's a piece of glass lol.

        Damn I wish I could find that.

          Those are pretty awful ... but he has one thing Flacco doesn't.

          Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

              Yeah. I think it's ridiculous. You'd be hard pressed to find a pic of my mom when she was pregnant with me that she doesn't have a beer on her belly and a cigarette in her mouth, and I turned out.

              Hey, I'm a Chiefs fan. Aaron Rodgers could wear a skunk that had been dead a week from being drowned in a blue room on his face and I would give him a piggyback ride from Green Bay to Arrowhead tomorrow.

                  • It all started as a joke with Flacco's Wacko Stache-o...

                    he was having dinner with Dennis Pitta (Ravens) and Joe's brother who was growing a mustache and they laughed and said it would be funny for Joe to do it and Dennis wanted in as well. they were playing well and funny thing is it made the news and a big deal out of nothing, so he kept it.

                    And Joe isn;t the best but not as bad as the media makes him out to be.

                    • Up to my oxters in work at the moment, basically cos some people are absent from the office.

                      Boss says - I need to get an advert to go into our magazine. "Ok great, send me the details and I'll get working on it".

                      Nope.

                      Sits down beside me. Boss gets a piece of paper (and they're not a designer or even close!) Starts drawing boxes and putting in the name of the Conference.

                      That's where they got stuck. I said "It's best to have all the content first before trying to do a layout".

                      Nope.

                      "Hank, I understand your logic... but I need to see the way it will be laid out before I do the content".

                      This is basically what they came up with



                      It's at this point the "designing" stopped.

                      Still at my desk. I'm still up to my oxters with other work With a printed out Email with all the details on it.

                      I said "Can you send me that email and I'll copy the text from it".

                      Nope.

                      I had to retype the entire email, even though the computer it resides on is only 10 feet away.

                      By now 30 minutes have past.


                      Then the boss sees I have typed out the entire email. Then says "I'm too busy to sit with you on this, I'll let you play with it" (so much OOC)


                      I spend another 30 minutes designing the damn thing.


                      Basically it could have been done in 30 minutes instead of an hour. Simple solution would have been to send me the Email with all details on it.

                      AND LEAVE THE DESIGN TO ME lol

                      It would have been done faster.

                      • i've had a similar task for the past week. everyone is too busy to actually sit down to talk about the flyer, but they want it ASAP

                        This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

                        there is no grey area when it comes to 1 color logos.

                            • Copyright grief from a salesman that knows better, argh.

                              I was asked to put together a five slide set in which each slide would contain data on how an employee assistance program has been of benefit to five different companies. This slide set will be used outside of our company to woo potential clients for something or other. Sales guy calls me and says he wants the company logos on each slide (including companies like Chevron and Campbell's Soup). I've read him the riot act about copyright infringement before, so he says, "Will you do this or should I do it because you're uncomfortable with it?"

                              I explain that theft is theft no matter who does it and he could easily contact each company to get permission. He said, "No. That's too much effort for this project. How about we use photographs of their signs? That'd work, right?"

                              I explain that no, that would actually add another copyright element, as he'd then have to worry about violating the rights of the person who took the photo. He says, "But it's not a professional photo. Just something a Joe Blow took. And they're all over the Internet! I googled it."

                              Now I explain that a photo on the Internet isn't free game and actually had to use an example of one of his family photos being googled and used without his knowledge or consent before he understood. "Besides," I added, "do you want to use Joe Blow photos on a professional presentation?" "Oh."

                              So now that I've burst his bubble on several levels, it's up to me to offer a solution. I start brainstorming ideas on data presentation using items related to each field (soup spoon percentage levels, gas pump chart markers, etc.) and actually generated some decent ideas. He said, "No. Just find photos of stuff. You know, an oil refinery. Soup." *sigh*

                              So I agreed and said, "Send me the data and I'll come up with something you can pick apart." He said, "Oh, now you're calling me a pain in the @ss?" Wtf?

                              I told him no, I say that to everyone because it's often difficult to really know what you want to see until you can look at what you don't want. He said, "Oh. Okay, yeah, you never get it quite right the first time, do you? Hey, did you know that the shape in the Chevron logo is called a chevron? Amazing."

                              *headdesk*
