A PORTION OF CREEP WITH THAT BURGER (Aimee)
If you haven’t already checked out Weird Asia News then get on it, the site knows how to knock out news which can have you both confused and fascinated!
Today I was taken to a McDonalds ad I doubt many of you will have had the pleasure of seeing! Images of Ronster hiding under the bed of an innocent young lass might have you thinking differently about stuffing your face with dog meat! Might even make it a tastier experience…
As a huge fan of anything kitsch, cute and of the baking variety, I was overjoyed when I discovered a website which delivers personalised biscuit-cards, a great alternative to the dreaded Moonpig or last minute Tesco number!
Biscuiteers was started by a husband and wife team in 2007 and has since graced the pages of Vogue, Brides, Glamour and Red magazines and the shelves of Fortnum & Mason and Liberty.
You can choose from a variety of designs including special Jubilee and Olympic themed treats.
They are presented in the most beautiful box – a real treat!

FANTASTIC PHOTOBOMBING (Sarah)
Now, immature it may be, but everyone loves a good photobomb. For those of you not up to date with the lingo this is when the main subject of a picture comes second to an inappropriate or amusing background character. If you need any more clarification, or just want a good titter, check out the link below!
AGE OLD ADVERTISING (Natasha)
Isn’t it amazing to look back and see how brands, that we feel we couldn’t function without, used to be. These images show how advertisement has evolved, going from plain old black and white to brightly coloured logos recognised the world-round. I think you can agree many are an improvement on their previous designs, however have Apple have lost out, no longer with Sir Isaac Newton as the face of their brand!
WHY CEOs SHOULD BE MORE SOCIAL (Emily)
Only 7.6% of Fortune 500 CEOs have bothered to make themselves visible on Facebook,and only 4% have opened Twitter accounts. Particularly in the midst of such a digitally-driven age, this seems a bit odd. The lack of engagement is the modern equivalent of a CEO not having an email address, and according to Forbes, CEOs have a responsibility to their shareholders to be connected to social media. People think it’s that they’re scared of wee mistakes that could offend people, but people expect to have that “direct” relationship, and when they do have it, they feel more connected and supportive of the company. Business is changing, and CEOs need to evolve with it!
