Good one, McDonald's.

Ha ha. Nice try, McDonald's. You don't really expect us to believe we're supposed to snack (as in "between meals") on a Big Mac disguised as a wrap, do you?

Above: The ridiculous Mac Snack Wrap.

This can't be real, can it? Tell me this isn't real.

Magnum, P.I., is that you?

Stumbled across this mysterious place the other day while we were in Potrero Hill. Gotta love San Francisco.

Retailer Spotlight: Shoppe Local

While back in Minneapolis for the holidays, we had the pleasure of checking out an awesome new boutique called Shoppe Local. A spin-off of the equally awesome Twin Cities-based Patina chain, Shoppe Local features an eclectic mix of products with local roots. (Joel grew up in Minnesota, and will always be a Minnesotan at heart.)

During our visit, we picked up this inspiring book showcasing hand-lettered typography called Hand Job: A Catalog of Type by Michael Perry:

And this great wood sign by St. Paul designer William Dohman to hang in our office:

It was fun to see our cards displayed among such cool stuff from other homegrown artists. If you live in Minneapolis, Shoppe Local is definitely a great place for one-of-a-kind finds.

We're with COCO

Conan O'Brien does it his way. You've gotta respect that. His classy letter to the "People of Earth" proves his pen is mightier than NBC's sword.

He's better off at Fox anyway.

Go team!

One of the funny things about owning a business is that you end up on some super random mailing lists. Case in point: We just got an awesome wholesale catalog from some business called Victory Corps: Flags, Floats & Events. Not only is it chock full of parade-float decorations (for all those parades we're in), but it also has flags. Specifically, "spirit" flags. Which leads me to the point of this post: Check out the picture of the overzealous guy hoisting this giant spirit flag:

Take a closer look:

Isn't he a little old to be the poster boy for school spirit?? And why is he all by himself? Where's the rest of the student section?

Reminds me of Will Ferrell's character, Frank the Tank, in Old School: "C'mon, we're going streaking! Everybody's doing it!" And like poor Frank the Tank, it looks he, too, is flying solo.

Ten bucks says this guy works for Victory Corps: Flags, Floats & Events putting together their catalog. They needed a product shot for the spirit flag but had no budget to hire a real model, so he's like, "Fuck it, I'll do it."

Which I guess makes him the epitome of team spirit, after all.

Miniature Herb Brooks

If you ever saw that movie Miracle (about the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team's "Miracle on Ice"), you'll love this. Even if you didn't, you'll love it. This kid is awesome:

And for shits and giggles, here's the original scene starring Captain Ron's Kurt Russell:
