Life In Advertising: RCA Victor vs. Funnel Pitbull

A new feature on this little blog, inspired by the fact that I'm well into my fifth nip of bourbon and looking for a diversion from take-home work. First, backstory: our pit bull is the Faberge egg of all dogs.

Oh, it's plenty. I don't even remember writing this.

Bukowski worked the same way.

I can't stop looking at that. It's so stupid, I love it. I'm so excited to see what kind of crap you do to the baby. - Babsy D

Whatever I can tastefully get away with by law, Babs.
