CLUE: They live for pink and love animals and flowers. 

Only one guess per person.  First correct answer gets a copy of George Parker’s badly designed book, Madscam.

[Which I’ll be paying for so George can make sure his next book The Ubiquitous Persuaders won’t look nearly as bad!]

That’s easy. Emah.

Comment by Marcus

It’s Jill’s!!

Comment by Emah

Its Jill’s !

Comment by Charles Frith

Is it Andy?

I am guessing he is a fan of pink kittens (and for kittens think of a synonim) 🙂

Comment by niko

Bad luck Niko.

Good guess but Andy doesn’t have lunchboxes – he has lunch wardrobes.

Comment by Rob

it’s mine. and i want it back thanks. 🙂

Comment by lauren

Given you’re an Aussie Lauren, wouldn’t you be doing the stealing rather than be the victim? 🙂

Comment by Rob

It’s yours Rob.

Comment by Angus

Do I look like the sort of sad bastard who’d have a Hello Kitty lunchbox? Hmmmmn, don’t answer that.

No it is not Angus, but as I’m pleased to see you on here again, I’ll let you off and wish you a toptastic New Year with a Blackberry Pearl somewhere near in your future 🙂

Comment by Rob

Does it belong to Dodds? He’s a sad bastard.

Comment by Marcus

Good point Marcus but given you’ve already had your ‘go’ you shouldn’t give hints/tips to others. Then again you already have George’s book so maybe you’re just being kind.

Even if you’re wrong 🙂

Comment by Rob

That is so far from being a good point.

Comment by John

So come on Dodds … stop being Walter Matthau and have a guess!

Comment by Rob

you’re right rob. given that i’m aussie, i probably would be doing the stealing, but in the spirit of current trends, i would publicly apologise for stealing it and any subsequent harm done, and then provide a fund for compensation.

however, seeing as you’re english, rob, you’d be whinging about it all the way to the press.

🙂

Comment by lauren

Billy?

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Good call Mr M … but Billy is more likely to try and get a date with ‘Hello Kitty’ than eat out of her box.

Ahem.

Comment by Rob

I don’t need to guess I just won the 20 million!

Comment by John

In that case you can change the name of your blog to IMADEMARKETINGHISTORY.BLOGSPOT.COM

Comment by Rob

But I imagine it’s Fred’s.

Comment by John

It’s George’s of course…and if he shares his name with his wife, that would be George Bryant’s.

Comment by fredrik sarnblad

That’s some imagination John!

Comment by fredrik sarnblad

I can see why you would say that Freddie – given he’s a Dad of 3 – but you’re wrong because that lunchbox isn’t goldplated with a fucking “I LOVE RB” sticker on it.

Comment by Rob

I got cut off there – I imagine it’s Fred’s gift to Jemma was the complete sentence.

Comment by John

Of course Rob, how stupid of me to think it wouldn’t have that.

Comment by fredrik sarnblad

Hahahaha …

And don’t tell me, I’ve just cut you off again while attempting to inform you that you’re wrong.

[Jemma does like Hello Kitty, but she only owns an acoustic guitar with the character on it, not a lunch box [that’s not very NYC as you well know]

Comment by Rob

John, you’re right insofar that I think it would have made for a really good present for Jemma.

Comment by fredrik sarnblad

Amazing – I got cut off there – I imagine it’s Fred’s gift to Jemma was the complete sentence except for the qualifier that it doesn’t meet the NYC aesthetic and so since it’s someone in your neck of the woods i would guess that It was

Comment by John

And besides, when you get the finest food imported fresh from all around the World delivered directly to your mouth whenever and wherever you don’t need a bloody lunchbox.

Not that I’m jealous. Well, not as much as Lee. Ha

Comment by Rob

You should go into politics John …

Comment by Rob

Strictly speaking it belongs to Sanrio; the owners of the Hello Kitty brand but you don’t need to give me anything (do you ever?) I’d only use the book to push down George’s throat.

I’m supposed to see you soon aren’t I Robert?

Comment by Lee Hill

Hurrah for a client who is smart, witty and errrrm, vindictive. No wonder he works with us 🙂

Comment by Rob

And yes you are … and if you pay for a nice lunch, I’ll spill the beans on who was behind the ‘Gay Marketing Alliance’ legend. Maybe.

Comment by Rob

Have I won?

Comment by Lee Hill

No.

And if you really want me to go into the specifics of transferable copyright then we can discuss the precedents over grub next week 🙂

Comment by Rob

And don’t make any rash threats because I have the trump card. George 🙂

Comment by Rob

Busy day then Campbell.

Comment by Marcus

Which reminds me, do you have a link for your story on the embarrassing laptop pictures incident? Someone I know wanted to read it!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

It should be – but in time honoured Campbell fashion, I’m procrastinating.

[See John, I do listen to you sometimes!]

Comment by Rob

yeah, such a nation to be proud of: highest teen pregancy in europe, highest drug use, highest level of illiteracy, highest rates of childhood asthma and highest rates of obesity.

in the words of bill bailey you’re a bunch of stoned, illiterate, wheezing, shagging, lardy bastards. champions!

Comment by lauren

Errrrrm, and what’s your point exactly?

Comment by Rob

Lauren?

Comment by Marcus

Is anyone here in Melbourne because I have four hours in the Qantas lounge and am bored fucking shitless.

Comment by Angus

YAY for a bored fucking shitless Angus!!!!

Comment by Marcus

Does this mean that aeroplanes are owned by their manufacturers?

Comment by John

Thanks!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Careful Lee – John is a professional.

Comment by Marcus

You just missed your chance for an upgrade from Lee there Angus …

Mind you he’s in a ‘mood’!

Comment by Robert

I though you’d of appreciated Lee’s comment John – given you’re a smartarse as well 🙂

Comment by Robert

Mood or not, I’d like one Rob/Lee. T’is a horrible shock when one goes from work trips to cattle class.

Macus, entertain me!

Comment by Angus

I shall shake my blogging booty for you Angus.

Comment by Marcus

I appreciated as much as I’m sure he appreciated mine – especially as I am a card-carrying member of a particular flying club.

Comment by John

I think Angus should buy George’s book from the Qantas bookstore – the hours will then fly by.

Comment by John

Can I just say that I actually like this blog thing. It’s like we’re all recharged and stupid again, ha!

And don’t talk to me about upgrades – I’m a pawn in Branson’s game – however Lee. Well Lee is a Bishop.

Must admit, don’t know how much influence Virgin will have on upgrading you on Qantas but at least they’re not as bad as they once were. Oh hang on, I’m talking about Business Class – interms of Economy there as shit as ever.

But at least they don’t crash.

But then statistically speaking, doesn’t that make them the most likely to next have a major incident?

[Ignore that Angus, it’s a private joke with Lee … a private joke that got me a swift kick up the arse by their lawyers a few years ago!]

Comment by Robert

Then again, there is always the Charles Frith “hot-tub action” live from Beijing Angus!

Comment by Marcus

5 pages of riveting and insightful entertainment spread out into 200 mindnubming pages.

[That’s a joke George … we’re in stupidhour can’t you tell? Besides, I’m going to up your sales by one tomorrow ANNNNNND I’m giving your book is billed as the ‘TOP PRIZE’]

Comment by Robert

I know. I’m gagging for some live streaming. Get in there Frith.

But I like your booty shaking Macus.

Rob, let’s not talk about plane crashes. Let’s talk about airline lounge food. Dear Cunt-Arse (as my Swedish friend innocently calls them), please do you have anything other than braised mushrooms?

Comment by Angus

Of course they do Angus – they have beef or chicken!

Comment by Robert

Yes can we not discuss that please, relatives flying home soon!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Hoping the zoom function on Frith’s phone is crap.

Comment by John

You want to zoom in on Frith’s crap?

What sort of pervert are you Dodds?

Comment by Robert

Best comment EVER John!!!! Fucking brilliant.

Comment by Marcus

A very very sick one.

Comment by Angus

Ew.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

(Is there some cool tech feature I’ve missed out on or are there loads of sad fuckers, like me, around the world watching this page or their rss reader and pressing refresh feverishly?)

Comment by Angus

fuck i love this blog!!

Comment by lauren

F5 presser in Munich reporting for duty Angus

Comment by Marcus

I’m only here because I don’t want to write my Walkman paper.

And the best comment ever is the one he wrote on Angus’ blog about the Herringbone ad from M&C.

That is gold.

Comment by Rob

Only because he didn’t use an exclamation mark.

Good work Macus.

Comment by Angus

Only 3 hour 30 minutes left Angus.

Comment by John

I also love the fact that every now and then people write “I LOVE THIS BLOG”. It serves no purpose but for a person who sometimes feels abit unpopular [cue: violins] it warms the cockles of my heart. Whatever they may be.

Comment by Rob

Don’t I know it John. They just bought out prawns, which, on the surface seems nice, but even the slightest chance that I might vomit from here to the UK is enough to make me avoid them. In this hour.

Comment by Angus

I’m more unpopular. You should see my hate mail.

Comment by Marcus

Fred once got Bali Belly on a plane trip from [surprise, surprise] Bali to Sweden.

It wasn’t his finest hour. But it made me laugh – and it’s all about the humour.

Comment by Rob

You’re right Marcus. You are more unpopular.

🙂

Comment by Rob

It’s a skill, don’t you know.

Comment by Marcus

That is fucking funny.

Comment by Angus

So’s synchronised swimming but it’s still not popular

Comment by Rob

Whose fucking lunchbox is it Rob?

Comment by Angus

Yeah – come on Campbell. It’s boring now. Who does it belong to?

Comment by Marcus

It belongs to humanity.

Comment by John

Fuck off John.

Comment by Marcus

(Welcome to the 2nd most influential blog in Asia)

Comment by Marcus

I slept my way to second place.

Hey Angus, Mr Dodds has just told me you go to bed ridiculously early. Why … and how would he know? Don’t you know he’s committed to Emah?

Comment by Rob

rob, by ‘slept’ do you mean you slumbered your way to second place?

Comment by lauren

No Lauren, it means I vigouressly thrusted myself to B grade.

Comment by Rob

Dirty old man.

Comment by Marcus

Jesus, you just made me vomit up those prawns Rob.

Comment by Angus

(I tell John I go to bed early to get rid of him. He’s a fucking stalker)

Comment by Angus

I really wish I hadn’t written that.

And funnily enough Angus, that’s the same reason I only ended up as the second most influential blog in Asia.

Though based on today, it’s currently 57th.

And tomorrow – with my serious post – it’ll go up to 29th but no one will bother to make a comment.

Hahaha!

Comment by Rob

‘vigourously thrusted’? do you seduce your wife with that oh-so-sexy talk?

Comment by lauren

The way this post is going its more like blundered 😉

Comment by Rob Mortimer

You and Emah should compare notes.

Comment by Rob

Feeling the pressure for seriousness then Campbell?

Comment by Marcus

Andy gave me tips. Can’t you tell?

Comment by Rob

I’m only too happy when that happens.

Comment by John

George is back soon … you know how he gets Marcus, haha!

Comment by Rob

Rob, huh, you ended up as the second most influential blog because you stalked someone like John does?

Comment by Angus

Well this has been fun …

Righ I’m going home now – there’s no way I’m going to do any work given I’ve not done any all afternoon so I think I will go and see my lovely wife and mad little cat.

Tomorrow the owner of the lunchbox will be revealed [there was a point to this post even if you’ve all forgotten] so all that leaves me to say is that I hope you all have a great day/night … thanks for putting a great big smile on my face [even if the thought of me thrusting makes certain people vomit] and I’ll see you all tomorrow.

Bye lovlies [and safe travels Angus!]

Comment by Rob

I miss George!

Comment by John

You would John. You would.

Comment by Marcus

Is that your new strategy John – stalk married men instead of innocent young ladies?

Desperate times call for desperate measures eh!

Night …

Comment by Rob

Rob, it was your query of how John knew I went to bed early that made me vomit, NOT your thrusting.

Comment by Angus

John the gooseberry stalker!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

This is fucking magic. It also proves that when Rob stops trying to be intellectual people start to take a passing interest in what he actually says. Not me though, I only take an interest when it involves the words “billy”, “pay” and “rise”.
I’m pissed I’m late in joining in the fun but my guess is Rob’s cat, the one who stuck her clawes in his ball sack. I fucking love that cat.
I have no idea if someone has already said that because I can’t be fucked reading all the comments, but George sounds my kinda guy so I’ll try and win a book by him. Bet it reads like a day in the office with Andy though 🙂
If this blog is like this without my boss around, it’s going to be banging when hes back. Makes me almost want to be at work.

Comment by Billy

Happy new year you beautiful and slightly mad people. Big hugs and kisses.

My guess is Paris Hilton because it’s the sort of thing that bitch would love and no one said it had to be someone we knew personally.

And to those who don’t know me, I’m not blonde, I’m a smart and sassy so no naughty comments because you’ve been sucked in with your suggestions. 🙂

Dearest Billy, you’d listen to every word I say wouldn’t you? Jemma x

Comment by Jemma King

Schwing

Comment by Billy Whizz

…when you winning.

Comment by Marcus

For a post that seemed to have more energy than a thousand suns, Billy had the touch of death didn’t he? 🙂
If I’m not too late, my guess is Hari or at least his daughter but after George’s comments about my place of work, I already ordered Madscam to see what I was doing wrong 🙂
As that guy who did “Through the keyhole” would say, who owns a lunch box like this? Please reveal all.
