in communication,communications your employees crave,health communication

i’ve stumbled across some fantastic health communications lately. here’s one. this is what your employees see every day…outside of the office.

it’s time to put away the goldfish and telescope, people. let’s grab employee communications by the nuts.

i’ll be sharing great communications as i come across them. if you have one worth sharing, send it to me at fran [at] contextcommunication [dot] com.


p.s. i can vouch for kind bars. they are tasty.

Grabbing someone by the “nuts” is slang for harming males by grabbing their testicles. That’s considered “Aw, shucks!” funny?


You thinks it’s being “too sensitive” to object since men are supposed to put up with any and all slurs? Fine. I’m down with that. Let’s but be equal. We’ll put up ads in cities saying “Pound that wild pussy!” to encourage people to call animal shelters to impound feral cats.

I’m sure feminists won’t mind. Just like they don’t when guys say women should show “true clit” (comparable to women saying guys should “show some balls”).

Equality: Ain’t feminism wonderful?

hi auntie pheminizm.

i took this ad to be a play on words, since it’s a nut bar, but i appreciate your raising my antennae on it. we often use phrases without thinking of their possible origin (rule of thumb, being a great example). but don’t you think we need to recognize that sometimes phrases live past their origin and take on a new meaning?
