Food PR People Love To Love

Mr. Cheetah

Apparently public relations professionals have an appetite for more than Twitter, checks from clients, fast cars and reporter hugs.  It turns out that the average PR girl and guy have secret food cravings that TGPR uncovered in a recent research project.  After revealing my crack cocaine choice of food – Cheetos – our colleagues divulged some of their secret tasty vices.  While chocolate led the pack (followed lovingly by Cheetos), there were some other top “cuisines” as well:

  • Hunk of blue cheese and loaf of hand-crafted bread
  • Nutella straight out of the jar
  • Sushi from Kiwami in Studio City (apparently this person actually got DTs after a week without it)
  • Sour Patch Kids
  • Hot and sour soup
  • Egg McMuffins

Quite the variety of food, indeed, secreted at the office in brown paper bags or stuffed in the couch cushions at home.  I’m sure these can be topped, so share your secret food with us, and the winner will get a cool little prize from TGPR.

Feeling Crabby Today – UPDATE

Man o’ man… in our not safe for lunch moment of the week, someone sent me a link to Revenge Crabs. The “Retail Crab Lice Specialists” are getting some good PR, with plenty of word of mouth working for them…but it’s just so GROSS and WRONG!! AGH!!!

Lots of ways to get out your aggression on the former lover, but spreading crabs leaves us with jaws dropped. I’m sure that makes the creators perfectly happy though!

Need more than one crab colony (YUCK) to accomplish your revenge? Have no fear because package plans assure you get just what you need to ruin that special someone’s life (and crotch):

BRONZE- Single Colony (up to 50 eggs); $99

SILVER- Three Colonies; $219; They suggest using one now, and freezing two colonies for later use. WTF.

GOLD- Shampoo Resistent Crabs; $298. 10 days of hell on the way thanks to your loving “crab lice specialists”

Well, like mom always said, “Life is Bitchin’ When They’re Itchin.”


Speaking of GROSS and WRONG, Kathie Lee and Hoda went “bare” this week on Today’s No Makeup Zone. Before you commend them for having the courage to hit national TV “bare” — or call the segment No Makeup Zone – you need to ditch the lipstick, mascara, eyeshadow etc. I may be a dude, but that’s not BARE girls… ;)

You know what, not so grossed out about the Crab specialists anymore.

Market Research at Disneyland

John visited Disneyland last week (and Dan earlier this year)…another round of data collection and “live” market research for the family division. We aren’t secret shoppers or anything but kudos to the happiest place on earth for great experiences both times. Dan nailed all the big kid rides on a day the park was at capacity and John had plenty of time introducing the lucky four year olds to smaller worlds…
