Goooal!

Marketing 101. I won’t see many more cigarette packets like this, not now that they all have to be packed in plain brown cardboard. Such a shame, I’ll miss those pictures of people’s cancerous throats, teeth and eyeballs.

Perhaps I should have kept this one, it was full!

Also on marketing, I was struck by how this Jets “Goal!” banner was wrong, wrong, wrong. I reckon the marketing whizzes from the Knights and the Jaegers and the Boomers thought they could just bang out the same product for the soccer. But that’s not how soccer works. Someone hits a four in cricket? Yeah, go wave your “Four!” banner. Someone scores a try or shoots a hoop? Yay!

But how often does anyone score in soccer? It at all?

No wonder it got chucked. Did the syringe come down in the wash with it at the same time? Surely the soccer isn’t that bad!

    Oh uncouth Philistine, do you not know that the World Game, the Beautiful Game, the Only Game Worthy of the Name, is called Football? Because you use your feet, geddit?
    At least that’s how it’s explained to me by my soccer fan friends.
    For some reason they get upset when I cheer on our national team, the mighty Footballeroos.
