I was in a bar the other week waiting for someone and decided to do something else besides bury my head in my mobile phone trying to look busy when I'm really just sending meaningless text messages to friends for fear of being seen as a lonely loser in a bar.
So I pick up this street mag called Lifelounge, whose theme last month was 'Tight".
I remember growing up reading Mad Magazine and Cracked comics, where the margins of the magazine used to contain jokes. I forgot all about this until I started reading Lifelounge.
On every page there's a bit of a smartarse comment in the margins around the 'tight' theme.
It's an interesting little space I haven't seen too many advertisers in, and certainly not in the mainstream mags. Maybe there's printing limitations to doing it, but if not, maybe this represents some kind of opportunity?
If nothing else, at least I get to show the picture of the half shaved llama, or whatever that thing is.
