No, I have not blogged about my car getting hit and then getting fixed, or about the fun-filled birthday day my friends held for me, or about my three-week stint with a gastrointestinal parasite. Nope. Better to post stuff like this:

Some site called Showbiz Notes has posted some amusing, sarcastic “salutes” to different marketing types. Since I bitch about marketing people several times a week, you can understand how much these little trifles made me warm inside. [NOTE: That site is no longer with us (already), but I found some lower-quality versions of the files and am hosting them here now.]

Miss I Don’t Know How to View a Rough Cut Lady

Mr. Impossible Promo Approval Guy

Mr. Asking Us to Think Outside the Box Guy

Mr. Cutting a Promo for a Lame Show Guy

Miss Small Talk in the Elevator Girl

Mr. Waiting for the Conference Room Man

As an added bonus, here’s a song I think anyone in marketing or design can appreciate: Make the Logo Bigger.

Thanks to Sven for finding these.

[…] Remember this one post? Linking to funny songs that only designers would appreciate? (Well, actually, a few of the songs are general office comedy, so normal people like yourself would enjoy them, too.) One of the songs on that page, which you should have gone to visit by now, is “Make the Logo Bigger.” […]

Thanks, Jason! Yes, they are too funny to be lost in the mists of time. We often revisit these songs here at work to get a much-needed chuckle. (I just saw the Make My Logo Bigger Cream site… it’s a hoot!)
