Hire Me, Hersheys

I suppose someone already thought of this, but: great idea for a new valentine's candy: a Hershey's Kiss with a liquid chocolate centre.The name: obviously the "Hershey's Wet Kiss"

The Midas Crema

I just received an email saying I'm now a Starbucks 'gold member'. Is that anything like an Austin Powers Gold Member? Either way, I will now order only 'golden lattes' and insist they are sprinkled with gold flakes. (right... then the barista takes my cup under the counter and mutters 'I got yer golden latte right here pal')

What's the difference between an Artist and a Designer?

As someone who has been both, I am often asked 'What's the difference between an Artist and a Designer?' After all, the finished work of either could often be identical to the other - so is the distinction found only in the method?

One simple definition could be to say that designers give what people want or need, whereas artists give people what they didn't know they wanted or needed.

Considering that, as well as all the subtle differences (i.e. Designers get paid, Artists get chicks; Designers have fake bed-head, Artists have real bed-head), I think I have distilled the most concise answer:

Artists end sentences with periods; Designers end sentences with question marks.

"This is what you wanted." versus "This is what you wanted?"
