Live by the Pun. Die by the Pun.

(bleed-through alert)
Throw in a bizarre S&M visual with your painful pun, and I'm eagerly trimming away in WWD with my X-Acto. For the next ad in your campaign, may I suggest black stilettos and a white seamless background? (btw, their website landing page has a typo, "relatioship")

Holy Shit. Speaking of puns...Did you watch the Today Show this morning? Something about a lady wearing a wig, robbing something or other? I don't know. I couldn't get the gist of it because there were way too many 'hair' puns to get around.

"This is a hairy situation."
"Money was hair today, gone tomorrow."

All of this is to say I agree with you. Puns are not okay.

I smell self loathing. From one copyranter to another, why do all the visual puns win One Show while the word guy toils in silent pain?

Wonder if the shoes left a note?


Great. I smell a campaign:

Shoes in the oven with the door open.

Shoes on the edge of a rooftop.

Shoes on a Mutha-fucking Plane. (Had to, sorry.)

Shoes on the train tracks.

Not to be a dickbag but you can put another piece of paper behind the one you're scanning so it doesn't bleed through like that.
