Maverick Marketing.

When you're stuck on the M6 in tediously slow traffic with the rain sheeting down it's easy for me at least to be amused by small things. I rather liked  the "No pies kept overnight in this van" sticker I spotted on the back of a Transit and then the rather witty advertising slogan on the rear of a TK Maxx lorry which read "Does my chassis look big in this?"

Last night, feeling ever so virtuous post very short run, I decided to cast aside the halo and sabotage any good work I might have done by cracking open a beer. In fact to be more specific this little number from the Ringwood Brewery [I have discovered that Lidl sell the artisan beers I like at very reasonable prices]:

Apart from thoroughly enjoying my tipple I snorted at the write up on the back which I feel duty bound to share:

"We take two things seriously at Ringwood Brewery- our beer and leisure time. Along with creating quality craft ales, we are relaxation enthusiasts.
Our motto is to "Visit the Winding Downs"- a place to enjoy some quality time with friends."

So pass the nuts will ya and All Hail The Ale!!


P.S. I now find that a boondoggle is a pointless business trip where the emphasis is upon fun and relaxation rather than work.
