It’s happened to everyone: you spend some time drafting a really important email, and just after you send it, you realize there’s an embarrassing mistake. The Utah State Bar knows what that feels like.
The Utah State Bar sent out an email reminder about its spring convention, which starts tomorrow, and apparently still has room available. The email also contained a photo of a woman’s bare breasts. There was no further information about the breasts, such as why they were in the email or if they would be attending the convention. Just boobs in an otherwise professional email. And that email was sent out to every single lawyer in the state. The Utah State Bar is investigating.
Now that’s how you make sure people open your email.
Let’s face it, folks, free soda is really, really important. Sure, the economy is in the outhouse, most of the world hates us and we’re still fighting two wars, but when it comes down to it, where the hell is my free soda?
Dr. Pepper promised it would give every American a free soda if Guns N’ Roses ever released its album “Chinese Democracy,” which was released this month. The release of the album was highly anticipated–a 17-year wait–because at times it looks as if democracy in China would happen before “Chinese Democracy.” The good doctor held firm to his promise, and for 24 hours, a coupon was available on the soda’s Web site. Which of course, crashed within a few hours because an overwhelming demand for something free.
Apparently, you really don’t want to make Dr. Pepper drinkers mad. GN’R is suing the soda because of all the negativity found online toward Axl Rose as a result of the promotion.
“When you go on the blogs and you read the responses from the fans, they associated Axl with this promotion … and blame him for the fact that they didn’t get their free soda,” said GN’R lawyer Laurie Soriano.
Really, lawyer dude? People are upset with Axl because they didn’t get a free 12 oz. can of sugar water? You don’t think it’s because your client not only made his fans wait until they were sending their kids off to college before releasing a new album? How about that the two singles released off of it are terrible, think that’s a reason?
