Lessons to learn from chocolate milk

A recent visit to the supermarket had me reeling in shock. When I got down to the back of the huge building, I was confronted by a queue which lead all the way past the bakery, the deli, the meat and ultimately to the dairy section.

Another year of Cannes is over. A batch of disgruntled French maids mops up the mess left behind by the drunken ad guy who jumped up and down on a bathroom sink, leaving nothing but a hole. Gaggles of ad-industry creatives and their entourage disperse to sunny European resorts to nurse hangovers.
