I suppose there probably is a market for religious cartoons but I will bet a cool million those cartoons are dreadful. Kids don't want to watch cartoons where you learn some naff pious message. They want to giggle at something naughty. Don't we all?
It took me 42 years to put to the test the lessons I learned back in Sunday school -- especially the lesson about knowing when enough is enough.
One of the things I find myself wondering every time the Edinburgh Fringe Festival comes round is; if an event of that size and stature is on the "fringe" of something, what the hell is the main event?
Due to the outcry against the new British animal fat £5 note, some shops have been refusing the note as tender. Reports show that customers even deny it for change. Perfect Solution: Reprint the new British £5 note with pumpkin seed oil.

When it comes to monetisation, sure, live broadcasting is arguably the last bastion of televised sport, but video platforms and social apps are making a beeline for the pot of more than $200bn of ad spend put into it by brands and advertisers.

Just like any time you check in with a friend you haven't seen in a very long time, interactions can be awkward at first. Unmet expectations and feelings of loss are a definite possibility. These characters have been suspended in reruns for almost a decade and all of a sudden, they've arrived in our present. They're using smartphones for god sakes!

The goal is to get to that stage where journalists call you for comment on a story that relates to your personal brand.
