Sometimes You MUST Laugh

Many of you probably stumbled on the "50 Shades of Grey" photo shoot from a certain well-known Instagram sensation.  I will abstain from any commentary here, but it did raise some interesting points as it was discussed and de-constructed on multiple social media platforms.

I then stumbled upon a parody of said-site and nearly passed out laughing.  With all of the posturing, posing and (if I'm honest) truly idiotic marketing campaigns out there in terms of advertisements, advertorials, and "alleged" stories (which are very subtle marketing campaigns in the guise of "reportage"), I think it is easy to get to a point where you feel that you are (if you are a male of a certain vintage) 11 years old and sneaking a peek at an "adult magazine" in the barber shop while waiting your turn to get your hair cut.

So as BaselWorld approaches, and we all get ready to guzzle huge vats of media Kool-Aid, I would like to share with you another Instagram sensation - Watch_Amish

Full credit to Eli Hershberger!  This stuff is HILARIOUS!  So take a break from all of the posing and goofiness, and have a laugh today.  And even take a moment to laugh at yourself - I promise you'll feel better!
