@Mikenicholls88 @kcarruthers The “who gives a fuck” is pissing away rare public health dollars on ineffectual ad-agency wank.

via TweetDeck in reply to Mikenicholls88

@Mikenicholls88 @kcarruthers Getting me talking is irrelevant chicken-clucking. I;m not the target, nor is my audience.

via TweetDeck in reply to Mikenicholls88

@Mikenicholls88 @kcarruthers I’ve worked on public health campaigns. The win is behaviour change, not buzz or “narratives”. This will fail.

@feed_the_chooks I can’t make fun of that video any more, because I’m kinda worried something medical is going on.

Each team in our radio OBs would start their shifts perky and end them blurry.

via TweetDeck

I remember when Two Dogs lemonade was launched during the Adelaide Fringe one hot summer in the early 1990s. So refreshing, so dangerous.

via TweetDeck

He had to pull it back to 7% or 8% after local businesses complained that “a couple quick pints” at lunchtime maggotted their staff. (2/2)

via TweetDeck

Gosh. I miss MacGillivray’s excellent brews at the Port Dock Brewery Hotel. He once ran his Old Preacher Ale up to 11% alcohol. (1/2)

I’d plug Adelaide’s famous Two Dogs lemonade, but a search tells me that its creator Duncan MacGillivray is dead. adelaidenow.com.au/business/two-d…
