Not Chosen, Just Posin'

I just got a job with a Jewish magazine. I'm not Jewish. They think I am.

Sans serif and Serif on the same page? Why, I never...
Guffaw. Guffaw.

The Smelly Designer is helping us update the website--blog and everything. The annoying ad sales guy (the only one who is left; the only one who should have been fired at all) is exerting his opinion and assumed importance, by making observations about her progress. I think he assumes his commentary on the matter is considered productivity. This is not the case.

As an aside, I've noticed that the smelly designer has a man face. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. Giselle has a man face, too, but she's still attractive. She-man. Ha.

So, here's the email from the ad guy to the smelly She-man designer (sic everything):

Smelly Designer,

Just taking time to go thru the site…with the new blog and all. I am aggressively beginning to try to sell space on the site… [Ed's note: You only sold 6 ads in the last issue, what makes you think you can sell space on our 50 hit per month website? Thanks.]

Observation: Do you want consistency with typeface/font? Open the site to the current issue page. I see what looks like an arial/clean-edged typeface on some features and what looks like times-roman on others…

Best regards,
Dumbshit Ad Guy

Bless her smelly little heart, the Smelly Designer gave it right back to our self-important slacker:

Dumbshit Ad Guy,

These are issues that we are looking at. The blog was put up in a about 2 hours, of course there are going to be issues. The old site was made by someone who didn't know what they were doing. The files are extremely unorganized. There are a ton of other things that are wrong with the site and changes are being made in the near future. The site is going to be restructured in due time.

By the way, where are you going to sell ad space? The site currently does not support ads. Let me see your media kit with dimensions before you attempt to "aggresively sell."
