The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

More Stuff Being Served Cold …

This is a purely self-indulgent post, but I got a bit of news today that made me soooooooooooooooo happy it is unbelievable.

It is also demonstrative of my lack of professionalism and corporate protocol – but fuck it – when revenge happens twice in one week, it’s worth alienating yourself for.

Can’t go into too much detail, but the people who know … know … and for the ones who don’t, errrrrrrm …

Oh, and to make things even better, my wonderful cynic mob have just been appointed to the wonderful Ben & Jerry’s account.

None of us give a shit they don’t spend much on ads – we get free product AND the chance to come up with some new flavour variants of our own. Bliss. [Bad luck Jill, it’s only in the US office, not here!]

Even though I’ve had NO sleep [as in NO SLEEP] and been in an all-day Coke meeting [you have to have lived through one to know the pain it is], I can honestly say today has been a bloody good day!

Hurrah for me and revenge!  [Yes, I know it’s sad that my happiness is mainly at others expense, but I don’t care!]

Sound of plane going right over my head…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

More like the sound of a plane crashing into the ground and bursting into flames leaving mass devastation and distraught people all around – but don’t worry, the people involved deserve every last bit of pain and suffering, ha!

[please note I’m only talking metaphorically – especially as I’m flying on one tomorrow!]

sausage and onion ice cream coming up.

Now you’re not leaving much for the imagination, are you Rob?

Congrats to all cynics on the B&J win! My lovely wife will be proud. I think she’s been one of the biggest B&J brand loyalists ever since she bought icecream from Ben & Jerry in person as a child in Vermont. And the brand seems to evoke warm emotions with her even after they sold out.

way to go on the B&J account!! B&J ice cream is the fucking bomb!
Any way you can change the name of the Phish Food flavour to something a little more inspiring? I don’t care if it’s in their top 10 flavours and the heart of their history, that band is bloody awful and ruins good ice cream!

Well done peeps!
Cant beat B+J, I think you should create a special personal flavour…

like chocolate sarcasticks, or cynicablockaglory…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

given recent posts, shouldn’t you guys be creating one called Rob’s/Andy’s Revenge [Best Served Chilled] would definitely be sweet..

Comment by lauren

I don’t think you have acurately expressed the level of happiness you are feeling Rob, I know you must be delirious especially given that it’s a multi-plane crash landing.

And congrats to the Cynic mob on the B&J win.

Well played on Ben and Jerrys, it’s not often you get to work on stuff you REALLY care about. Ask for Brown bread ice cream please.

Yorkshire Tea Ice Cream!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

i fucking love your idea lauren. andys exbitch revenge would feature sour cherries mixed with a generous helping of broken glass shards all blended together in a creamy almond arsenic sauce. and theres a couple of people i’d like give a big fucking tub to.

Comment by andy @ cynic

I think you should leave B&J to one of the others to work on, what do you think?

And before you jump down my throat, I have your best interests at heart – do you really want to be Bubba’s bitch when you serve 20 years in prison?

Comment by Robert

Oh, and wait till you see the wanky place I’ve just had dinner – you’ll go mental!

Posting it soon … then BED!!!!
