Today's Mighty Oak

Alright, let’s see what we have today.

First up, in horrific news: bacon shortage.

This is just awesome:

One of Mitt Romney’s sons is mean.  Just saying.

And the awesome Mitt Romney/Lucille Bluth mashups, a favorite:

This will totally be my brother and his wife’s child (if and when they have kids, as far as I know, not in the works):

It’s funny, because now Gov. Walker wants unions….:

This is pretty amazing, How I Met Your Mother in under a minute:

Amtrak is testing 165 mph trains!

Scott Brown’s staff made a really racist video about Elizabeth Warren.  She hits back:

And finally (a lot of video today), remember Shit ___ says?  The creators talk:

That’s it for now, have a great one!


Okay, big update, here’s what we have, hope you enjoy:

I’m thinking last year’s Star Wars ad (for VW I believe) will be better, but I’m excited for this, if nothing else, the promo:

Ogilvy is a giant of a ad agency, and Copyranter pulls out a great quote:

If all else fails, I drink half a bottle of rum and play a Handel oratorio on the gramophone. This generally produces an uncontrollable gush of copy.

How much do I love Sesame Street:

Clintus posted this awesome pic on his blog, check it out.

Ragan reports on an awesome interview given by the CEO of Morgan Stanley:

Morgan Stanley’s employees need an attitude adjustment.

At least that’s what CEO James Gorman thinks of his staff who are aren’t happy with recent 20 to 30 percent pay-cuts among senior executives. He also limited cash bonuses. In this Bloomberg Television interview, he outlined three reasons his employees shouldn’t be upset with a smaller salary.

1. They’re “naïve” and should read the newspaper.

2. Compensation shouldn’t define their overall level of happiness. If it does, “you have a problem which is much bigger than the job.”

3. Life’s too short. “If you’re really unhappy, just leave. I mean, Life’s too short.”

This man is amazing!  But is it sad that just using some common sense is now considered amazing?  Check out the article at Ragan to see the interview and read more.

 The most amazing peephole ever:

Joseph Gorden-Levitt lends his talents to autotune the news:

It’s macabre, but I like it, I just think it should have been a :30 spot.  So great idea, but sloppy execution.  But still, powerful:

That’s it for now, I’ll be back with more soon!
