Blah blah blah....so anyway, the outside agency is presenting to us, and their proposed tagline is identical to the one my team was to present. Word for word, letter for letter. Never seen anything like it happen in 25 years in the business. We had a good laugh, and agreed "it must be right if we both came up with it," but in the back of my mind I'm like "what's up with these dooshes?"


    Insert cool story bro meme here.

    I'm still shocked you know the words Serendipity and nefariousness.

    Definitely spies. Kind of like "The Americans", but with black jeans and drinking excessively.

    I have no idea. I thought maybe you just wanted to show off your vast knowledge of dinosaurs.

    I sense Shakin feels a bit dissed here. Like when you didn't call the Maestro - Maestro.
