Executive Coloring Book- 10.09.06

The Executive Coloring Book - it took me all day to even pick images to show you from this, it is too funny. Some great excerpts… “This is ME. I am an executive. Executives are important. They go to important offices and do important things. Color my underwear important.” — “This is the product my company makes. It is an inter-fibrous friction-fastener.” — “This is our competitor’s product. It is a nail.” — “This is my pill. It is round. It is pink. It makes me not care. Watch me take my round, pink pill… and not care.” Best part is? This is by Marcie Hans, Dennis Altman & Martin A. Cohen way back in 1961.


Not that I doubt you notcot, but 1961? C’mon, if that is true then these guys are comedy geniuses.

I wonder what they are doing now …

I had the pleasure of working with Dennis Altman back in the 60’s when he and Don Bratrude started an ad agency Altman, Bradtruse and Soforth and was responsible to getting them the advertising account of the Harris Bank’s Midwest Bank Card, taking the account away from large depositor Leo Burnett Company. Anyway I can get in touch with Dennis or Don today?
