Skip the Pun

I am not anti-pun. I find that, on occasion, I actually enjoy them and that they are the right answer. However, I've also found that behind most pun-lines, there's are real lines trying to get out.

When you find yourself looking at a pun that just seems too good to be true, scratch it out and keep writing. More often than not, the reason the pun works is because there's actually something truer and deeper to your concept. There will be a brilliant line that accomplishes the same thing you thought only the pun could. The deeper thought. And when you find it, it'll feel damn good. And suddenly you'll realize how much smarter your ad feels.

Plus, the entire industry is so pun-phobic that you can now safely show that piece to a creative director who read somewhere that puns are bad and thus won't even look at an ad that has a pun in it. In advertising rules are meant to be broken. Just not that rule.

Are you saying that braking rules?

Oh no. It seems I must stay home. I've got the puns.

Nuts.

Many of you probably think that Christian Louboutin Pigalle Plato Platform Shoes is weird but actually, if you imagine yourself wearing this pair you’ll realize that it’s really cute and charming. This ballet flats is mainly crafted from faux pony hair that provides the fur-like texture on the upper. Predominantly in white, its outer is designed entirely with black specks creating the spotted look. louboutin shoes store

10,000 years ago, deep in the caves of Oregon, early man produced the world's first pair of shoes. The ancient shoes, made of woven bark, were nothing more than a shield from the elements. Tens of thousands of centuries later and halfway around the world, a young boy by the name of Christian Louboutin wandered into a gentleman's night club in Paris and witnessed female nudity for the first time. Awestruck and enamored, the nude female form became Christian Louboutin shoes sale 's inspiration behind one of the biggest fashion empires to date.
During his teenage years, ugg boots sale
often drew women's shoes in his notebooks during school. Then, in 1979, he saw a billboard in Paris for the Oceanic Museum of Art. The billboard banned women's stilettos from the museum, and Louboutin fixated on the sign's 50s iconic image. As a result, he began to draw shoes with soft soles and smaller buckles, much like the ones he drew in his school notebooks.
designer Louboutin shoes sale sought higher learning from the design schools of Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent. He initially worked at the universities, and then began working for Roger Vivier in 1988. While working for Vivier, Louboutin realized that his calling was to create women's shoes.

The solo artist created classic, timeless footwear that enabled women to reach bold new heights. shop for Christian louboutin shoes
