Truth in Advertising…

This is a billboard for Ranfurly Frontier Lager in New Zealand.  The concept is that in the near future real men are close to extinction.  The very last of these men now reside in the Ranfurly Man Park where they are once again free to live the rest of their days “as nature intended”.

I’m not feeling the overall campaign concept and execution, but I must admit that truer words have never appeared on any billboard I have ever seen.

Wait, Wait…

One of my favorite shows on NPR is “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!” 

Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! is NPR’s weekly hour-long quiz program. Each week on the radio you can test your knowledge against some of the best and brightest in the news and entertainment world while figuring out what’s real news and what’s made up.

As it is my job to find interesting bacon (and nerd) related subjects/content, I present to you this Bacon-filled ”Listener Limerick Challenge” from the  April 11th broadcast.

You can listen to the show on the “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me” website or download the podcast through iTunes.  In Detroit, it’s on WDET-FM (101.9) every Saturday at 10:00 am. Try it, you’ll like it!
