OK, today's challenge is...count the number of ginga copywriters in your agency

1 in every 3 of our copywriters is a firey gernard. That's a pretty high percentage.

Oh this is bloody great. Some feeble-minded, prejudiced fuck thought it would be a good idea to count the ginga copywriters in your agency! While you're at it why don't you count how many niggers you've got as well. And how many fatso's. If you do it thoroughly you'll get it down to yourself - the only perfect specimen in the agency. Perfectly fuckin' vacuous, bigoted and dim-witted. This really does achieve a new low on this blog. Well done.

"There's a Period Head suit at Saatchi's". Thanks for pointing that out. What a delightful person you must be. You must be proud of yourself...and so creative.

9.22 - The only post that makes ging seem like a derogatory thing is yours.

9:33 What planet are you from. You're delusional if you think that the very act of singling out a minority for attention like this or calling them "Period Heads" is not derogatory.

My mate's a ginga. He always denied it. Then his hair started going blondish. He said it was the sun. We were suspicious. Then I was around at his place one day and found a bottle of lemon hair bleach. Busted.

Bad fanta-pants, bad.

It's funny that 'Ginga' started as a bit of contemporary cockney rhyming slang for 'queer'. Ginger beer - queer. Until it became non -u to single out those of a minority sexual proclivity. Then it swung over to mean ginger-headed people. It seemed to have the necessary amount of invective and hatred in it for the purpose - a bit like the word 'nigger'. The world has to have someone to hate and I guess gingas are the flavour of the mo. I wonder who's next. Fat, white, Anglo-Saxon, protestant, balding, middle-aged, hetrosexual men are no fun anymore. Watch this space - it could be coming to a place near you.

We'll take any colour, any kind. Right now there's an antipodean shortage of mid-weight copywriters, even fat ones. If you have any to send to Sydney or Melbourne please pad them with packing foam and send them to us. Carrot tops wshould be packed with
30+ sunscreen ready for Bondi.
