This Is Getting Too Easy
Being a blogger is getting too easy.
All you have to do is take anything anyone in advertising says and call it bullshit and you'll be right just about always.
Case in point:
About two weeks ago we wrote a post called Lots Of Screwing But No Marriage. The post was about reports that the merger between Omnicom and Publicis was falling apart.
Of course, the parties denied it and said the delay in the marriage was due to "legal and tax issues in Europe." Yeah, right.
When Sir Martin Sorrell said the parties were speaking two different languages, we said he was wrong -- they were speaking one language, "the only language they know -- bullshit."
Well, guess what...
I need a more challenging hobby.
