Danny Cipriani loses a bet

Leave a comment

I have to admit I’ve never been a huge fan of Danny Boi for both his on and off field actions and mostly because he dated hotty Kelly Brook but this is simply classic and proves that the man does have skills and is honoured to his word. Two weeks ago Danny lost a bet and as most rugby boys normally bet on something like drinking beer or doing something embarrassing rather than parting with their hard earned cash. Danny was subdued to do a Dougie. Don’t know what a Dougie is well then watch this:


How funny is that and I have to admit the boy does have skills.



Today’s lesson – Can you dance?

Leave a comment

An old prospector shuffled into the town of El Indio, Texas leading a tired old mule. The old man headed straight or the only saloon in town, to clear his parched throat.

He walked up to the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail.

As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.

The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, “Hey old man, can you dance?”

The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, “No son, I don’t dance… never really wanted to.”

A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, “Well, you old fool, you’re gonna dance now!” and started shooting at the old man’s feet.

The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet.

Everybody standing around was laughing.

When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon.

The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled 12 gauge shotgun and cocked both hammers.

The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air. The crowd stopped laughing immediately.

The young gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly.

The silence was deafening. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin 12 gauge barrels.

The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man’s hands, as he quietly said;

“Son, have you ever kissed a mule’s ass?”

The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, “No sir… but…but I’ve always wanted to.”

There are a few lessons for all of us here:

  • Don’t be arrogant.
  • Don’t waste ammunition.
  • Whiskey makes you think you’re smarter than you are.
  • Always make sure you know who is in control.
  • And finally, don’t screw around with old folks; they didn’t get old by being stupid.


Wacky Wednesday: Naked Ambition

Leave a comment

The Saatchi’s has been making some moves recently. Here is their latest piece of work by the London agency “Showcase” Call for entries for the 59th Cannes festival. This little backwards beaut was directed by non other than Chris Palmer, looks like Saatchi’s putting their money where their mouth is. The little skit features an adult movie director whose ambition is to make advertising commercials.  Which is pretty much contradicting the industry whereby most Art Directors inspire to be successful Film Directors, funny that anyway’s you have to start somewhere, just saying.

Have a look to see how many iconic advertising references, techniques and slogans can you find in the below skit.


Ever year for the past 12 years  Saatchi’s New Directors showcase has been a highlight at the Cannes International Festival of Creativity. Which is apparently “the best attended even after the award ceremonies” acording to Saatchi & Saatchi. However I have to say the after party must come in a close second. Still it’s a great way to attract, identify and nurture new creative talent from around the world.

How many of you have a Dad that runs around in his briefs?

The Dollar Shave Club: Our Blades Are Fucking Great

1 Comment

Any of you men out there sick of coughing up hundreds a year of your hard earned cash for shaving, when you could be spending your money on better things like beer or that cute blonde at the bar who only drinks Veuve. Sound familiar well it’s just like the very popular P&G brand Guillotine, sorry I mean Gillette. Who rope’s you in so badly that they make you feel like that teenage crush you once had only to later found out that you were being used and that you would never actually hook up with her, we’ve all been there so don’t lie.

It’s basically the same same but different, when you buy their razor for a reasonable price, only to find out later that their blades cost just much as the razor itself. Then after a series of razor burns and once you have finally gotten used to the damn shaver, they launch a new and “improved” version at a higher cost and stop production of the older version. Forcing you to part ways with your old beloved razor, for one that now causes even more of a rash.

Therefore I Love what these guys have done and it’s right on the money.


Not sure if I would join them even if they have fucking great blades but they do have a great idea and I feel their burn.

Gotta love Simon’s Cat

Leave a comment

Everyone can relate to cats and Simon’s Cat is no exception. A mate sent this one to me this morning and it just put a smile on my face which was better than the frown I was donning. To be honest I’m more of a dog person but I also like cats after being bought up with one of those cat ladies as a mother (I love you Mommy Goose). To me you can’t have one and not the other, kinda like coffee and cigarettes. They just complement each other, no matter if they are best friends or worse enemy’s, somehow they will still always manage to steal your space in the bed.


Thanks J-son.
