Saw this article in one of Asia’s Industry Mags

I am sure they meant ‘particular’ … but it’s definitely funnier this way!

a bit like when planners are called valuable when what they mean are “wankers”. im bored, can you tell?

Comment by andy@cynic

Actually that seems normal enough to me. Not the most common way of putting it mind.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Unique to would be the correct phrasing.

Comment by John

Unique TO would be the correct phrasing?

Is that you keeping in line with this post or a genuine slip up, John?

Comment by Rob

“who gives a flying fuck” would appear to be the correct phrasing.

Comment by Marcus

That is the most insightful comment of the day Marcus.

Comment by Rob

I know, I’m really going for that “possible” TBWA position. You can tell can’t you?

Comment by Marcus

It’s as if you read the “How To Land A Job At TBWA” manual!

Comment by Robert

Or at least the “How NOT To Land A Job At DDB”

Comment by Rob

Don’t tell me DDB read this fucking blog too?

Comment by Marcus

No it’s not a slip up “unique to” rather than “peculiar to” would be the correct phrase. Assuming of course that they are the only people who indulge in marriage counselling or whatever the hell that woman does.

Comment by John

but nobody really gives a flying fuck John, so why waste your considerable skill and intelligence with this nonsense?

Comment by Marcus

Because that’s what it’s come to Mr. Bannister.

Comment by John

I think I will hate you for all eternity for that comment Dodds.

Comment by Marcus

No you won’t!

Comment by John

…o…k…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

you’re right. I’ll hate you for little bit and then love you again. It’s the power you have over me. It’s the power of the master-marketer!

Comment by Marcus

john and marcus, seeing as you guys are having a lovers’ tiff, maybe you should get in touch with suzie at DDB in singapore – she can help plan your engagement and sort out your marriage in one session!

Comment by lauren

Are you saying that Susie was so upset with the article slip up that she’s resigned from BBH and gone to DDB already?

God adland is a fikcle industry!

Comment by Rob

I chose to ignore the Marcus / John conversation because I can’t work out what the hell is going on, but then I am a planner – so what would I know eh!

Comment by Rob

do you never read my fucking blog Campbell?

Comment by Marcus

You know I do – and you know I know you’re being all pissy because you’ve stopped smokin’ so now have the patience and temprement of some 3rd World Dictator whose just stopped smokin’ and consumed 18 cans of Red Bull!

Comment by Rob
