This is probably the most ridiculous thing I’ve read all day, and that’s saying a lot:
National Pork Board Needs to Back Off Â» Online Marketing Blog
Jennifer has a site called The Lactivist from which she has some silly shirts for sale. One of which says, â€œthe other white milk.â€ Apparently this is to be construed as a violation of the Pork industryâ€™s slogan, â€œthe other white meatâ€. Apparently the NPB has no sense of humor and no insight into things like â€œfair useâ€ (tip Jason Lee Miller).
I’ve met Jennifer as search engine marketing conferences in the past. Yes, there is a spin off from the Pork industry’s trademark going on here, but is there confusion? Of course not.
Carly and I are planning a series of 30-day challenges in 2007. It seems like a long enough time to challenge oneself to some form of life-changing habit, but tolerably long for those that turn out to suck. For example, Carly and I just wrapped up 30 days without soda, which was surprisingly easy. Chances are pretty good that I won’t go back to drinking anywhere near the soda I drank before (~6 cans a day).
We haven’t decided what 30-day challenges we’re going to try yet, but have some ideas. Somehow, I don’t think this one will make the list for Carly:
Serious Eats: 30 Days of Pork
Amanda Kelso was a 12-year veteran of vegetarianism when she went AWOL. She blames pork. “Bacon was a temptress to me,” she says in her 30 Days of Pork series on photo-sharing site Flickr.
Bacon is a temptress for me too. Just last Friday I enjoyed bacon wrapped little wieners. What a delicacy of pork-on-pork goodness those are.
What would you recommend for 30-day challenges? The theme is to do lifestyle improving things, so things like dining choices, exercise goals, friendship related, etc., are what we have in mind. Any thoughts?
