This will clear up any confusion …
You’re a woman and you see a handsome man 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 man.
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 man 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 man 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 man.
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 man.
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 she 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 centre and shout at the top of your lungs, “I’m fantastic in bed!”
That’s Junk Mail.

I hope you all have a complete understanding of Marketing now .

Margaret Cho–Miley Cyrus Is A Disgrace

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

On her blog this week, Margaret Cho blasted Miley Cyrus for her alleged posing in a racially stereotypical gesture:

In a blog entitled Oh Miley, Cho wrote that she was “so upset by Miley Cyrus” that she thought it warranted a song criticizing the Hannah Montana star.

“Oh Miley; Chinky eyes make you look wily; Prejudice isn’t thought of So highly; it doesn’t make us all smiley.”

Cho also labels the Cyrus a “disgrace” and pondered “why isn’t racism against Asians taboo?”

That’s a pretty funny song, just about the funniest things Margaret Cho has ever said or done. I also have a song, but it’s for Maragret Cho, I hope you enjoy it: Margaret Cho, you fucking suck. Go die.

Admittedly, it isn’t as much of a song as it is my personal feelings on Margaret Cho, but I’m sure everyone can back me up when I, politely, asked Margaret Cho to go die.

It’s a fact that a picture surfaced showing Miley Cyrus warping her eyes. What isn’t a fact is whether Miley Cyrus did this because she harbours racist attitudes towards Orientals, or if she was just being a goofy kid.

Margaret Cho is upset at Miley and says as much when she calls her out as someone who is prejudice. Now let’s back the truck up and look at this rationally. Someone who was taking a picture of a group of kids asked them to make silly faces. Cyrus grabbed her eyes and made them squinty and the person clicked the picture. Cyrus is a marketing genius who is worth slightly less than Obama’s stimulis package. Cyrus would well know that if she had a picture taken of her that found its way to the public domain depicting herself as racist, her career would be devastated.

Then why didn’t Cyrus reel in that picture that was taken of her? I mean, she’s anything but a stupid kid. The reason is simple–she’s not a racist.
