Lies Well Disguised, #28.

This July, AMC starts airing an original series called Mad Men—about a fictitious 1960s NYC ad agency. Yesterday on Gawker, I took a trip back to my first ad job, working for a truly "mad man" (link). For the previous 27 Lies Well Disguised columns, type that phrase into my search window, upper left.

I'd do the female account executive. (And if this was in the late '80s, probably did.)

Limos. Coke. Adultery. Kickbacks. "Conversion" of client money. Mob ties. Stolen ideas. Hair transplants.

It's still happening.
