A little fun for Friday. Colonel Sanders, Ronald McDonald, and Wendy’s all reimagined as anime. I really liked the Colonel Sanders one. The Hamburglar appears on page 2–not one that’s been seen in years–and he definitely looks more on the bad guy side.
There’s been a lot of online discussion lately about how people are always on. The slightest hint of boredom and they head over to play a game or look at email. Sometimes boredom is where the creativity comes into place and the leaps of intuition take place. At least take a walk today and look at everything around you. And keep the cell phone in the pocket. Hopefully it isn’t too hot outside.
