By web gangsta | Published:

Does your company have an iconic logo, one that defines who you are or what you do in an instant?

We’re not talking about a cartoon character spokesman, like the Geico Gecko (or the Geico Caveman, take your pick).  We’re talking something more akin to the “apple” logo for Apple.

Who’s going to win the Best Bathroom in America contest?


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that you can tell a lot about a place of business (whether it be a fancy hotel, a fast-food restaurant, or your neighbor’s house — assuming your neighbor’s place would be considered a place of business) just by looking at their bathroom.

If the bathroom is dirty, then it’s likely the rest of the establishment isn’t being kept up-to-par.

If it’s a sparkly-clean restroom, then you can tell that the business cares about their customers.

Running a Mistress Contest


By web gangsta | Published:

CNN is reporting on a CHINESE MISTRESS CONTEST that resulted in one of the losing contestants dying while trying to kill the other mistresses, along with the man who came up with this brilliant idea.

The contest was held by a married businessman who had five mistresses, and he decided to lay off four of them due to the economic downturn.  His goal was to determine which mistress to keep.  None of the women wanted to lose their “job”, which came with a rent-free apartment and $730 monthly allowance. 

In case you were thinking of running your own “best mistress” contest, this is what CNN reports are the three sole criteria used to pick the winner from this private talent show:

  • How the women looked
  • How the women sang
  • How much alcohol they can drink

In the end, the businessman ended up paying $84,744 in compensation to the victim’s family and also shut down his business.  The four surviving mistresses also left him… as did his wife after learning of the affairs.
