Breaking news!

Duncan Bannatyne finally invests!!

It was a historic episode of 'Dragons' den' last night when the unusually
tight Scotsman finally dug into his piles of dosh and gave some to a budding
entrepeneur. For once we didn't hear him say 'I'm ouuut!' or 'I have no
interrrrrest what-so-everrr.' Peter Jones, a fellow Dragon, was rumoured to
have muttered 'well fuck me sideways' and 'c*ntsticks' under his breath when
it happened. Menawhile, Theo Paphitis, an immigrant, looked perplexed.

I still think that dude with the knee skates had something. Very usefull for some of our suits who take up the arse so badly from the client.

What's wrong with regular old knee pads? Our suits have been wearing them for years.

How can they carry their bags on their knees?

Guess that'd make a good "I didn't actually present that to the client (insert rank excuse here)" excuse.

I won't be investing, because you say that now but when you're in front of the client you say that you don't really like the ad either and that you had a better idea but the creative director told you it was shite but it was clearly better than this and would they like to see it but don't tell the creative director 'cos he'll kill you if he found out the talentless has-been hack.

Bunch of third-division biznesspeople looking for ideas that they can't come up with themselves, offering pathetically small amounts of money for ridiculous percentages of desperate peoples' creativity or blowing them off like some feeble Simon Cowell wannabes while revelling in the choked up attempts at pitching their proposals. Could be ad suits eh?

If Catmur was a dragon he'd invest 150k in a 'head reduction' business.

If anyone thinks that having any one of that bunch of toerags taking over half your business for five minutes of their time a week is a good idea then you deserve them.

I can't wait for the follow-up to see how the various businesses that the dragons have invested in are going.

You can check it out on the website. Quite funny - it seems most of the dragons split before any of the projects got off the ground, leaving the poor fuckers standing there like a suit after a client telling-off. Fair enough too - most of the ideas were poorly researched and had more loose ties than a couple of old St Kents boys.

I'm outta here like a something in a something.

These so called Drag Ons wouldn't know a good idea if someone came up the stairs and showed it to them. Like most 'successful' business people, they've mixed good luck with ruthless arrogance.

Can't wait to see the NZ version. It'll have Mark Ellis, Lana Coc-Croft and Brent Todd on the panel.
