copyranter celeb dish #2: meeting with LT.

Setting: Ad agency conference room.
Meeting: The Licensing Group that owned the Starter® Athletic Apparel name.
Participants: 2 men from the client, 3 men from the agency, and Lawrence Taylor, former New York Giant and NFL Hall of Fame linebacker (LT was apparently going to be a Money Man for Starter.)
Introductions are made. Agency head starts in with a brief credentials spiel, when, suddenly, LT interrupts with a pressing question.
LT: WHERE'RE THE BITCHES?
(a couple of nervous guffaws followed by awkward silence.)
LT: NO REALLY, YOU GOT ANY BITCHES WORKING HERE?
(flashes big LT smile)
I don't really remember how the rest of the meeting went.

Let's face it. He has a point. There was a day, only a decade or so ago, when the bitches were the main reason for coming to work.

Yeah, sounds like the agency really dropped the ball on that one. It's okay to draw the line at 4 or 5 big, fat mountains of blow, but to deprive LT...L-T...of the bitches he expected? No...so richly deserved? Weak.

when he asked, "where're the bitches?" the response should have been, "besides you?"

Say what you will about LT, he obviously cares about gender equity in the workplace. Why copyranter, why is advertising such a boys club?

Also, Starter apparel? My nipples are getting hard from 90s nostalgia.

I met LT at the Hall of Fame induction in '99. He couldn't care less that people were there to see him and get his autograph. I didn't see him acknowledge anyone. Must have been thinkin' 'bout his beeotches!! What an ignoramous.

SpinachDip: yep, the meeting was about 1999. I had forgotten about it til I saw his pic in the issue of Cigar Aficionado.

I thought I'd share a neat site I found when I dug deep into a search engine the other day. This is good when you really start looking around. A hidden gem really. But I digress.. here - golf school
