We're absolutely crucial. Just look at everything we contribute.

Looking at these photos, I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry.

Okay, it's pretty damn funny.

The best is the caption, "The second annual Advertising Week kicked off early this morning inside the Nasdaq building in Times Square. The invitation-only event symbolically emphasized the crucial role advertising plays in the national economy." Apparently, advertising is crucial because it has contributed a lizard and some oddly unerotic hot twins who love to chew gum. Without them, the country's financial machinations would surely come to a grinding halt.

I hope it was an Ad Age writer with a subversive streak who was responsible for the description. I'm afraid it was probably something picked up from a press release, written without any sense of irony at all.

It's no surprise that brands like Starbucks and Apple seem to be absent from this week-long maroon.

As an aside, how did that creepy Burger King fellow get in there? I'm not convinced that he was actually invited. It looks like he just showed up after blowing through a wad of cash at Scores the night before.

And once again, The Marlboro Man, Joe Camel, and Spuds MacKenzie were not present. Perhaps their invitations got lost in the mail.

I am afraid I must take issue with your post, my good man. Those "hot twins" you mention are most certainly erotic. In fact, in the late of the evening, my fantasies often involve them, a bottle of fine wine, a trampoline, a tub filled with Cherry Jell-O® and an albino meerkat.

You want "oddly unerotic" twins, try Mary Kate and Ashley.
