Poor Murdoch

In the last two days, I happened to see two opportunistic ads on the Internet at the expense of Rupert Murdoch. Here they are:

Real Journalism means…never having to say you’re sorry

Powershop ad: Same power different attitude

While finding the whole UK News of the World phone hacking scandal incredibly… well scandalous, I can’t help but feeling sorry for Murdoch. The way the newspaper gathered there information were questionable, but haven’t we heard enough about it already? Shouldn’t we give Murdoch a rest? All I hear on my media podcasts about three weeks ago were ‘phone hacking scandal’ ‘Murdoch’ ‘News of the World’ etc on mediawatch from the UK, Australia and New Zealand, those are the only ones I listen to so I wouldn’t be surprised if similar content were broadcast all over the world.

Do you think these two ads offensive?

Do you think the Powershop ad could even be offensive religiously?


Do you ever…?

Do you ever hate those lucky people who could stuff everything and anything down without getting … well let’s face it… fat?

I know I do.

You can’t beat your genetics, but you certainly can work hard to remain healthy with exercise routines and the sacrifice of naughty (but yummy) foods. Why do yummy things always do more harm to you than good? It’s like a trap! I usually do OK until I see some petit wee girls stuffing triple chocolate cakes in the Cafe, then I would get very jealous. Why dad why? why couldn’t you give me the superpower genes of never-getting-fat?

Oh well.

Are you one of those lucky people who can eat just about anything and still remain a beautiful figure?

Can people be healthy at any size?

Update: saw this article on CNN today Should all obese people lose weight?
