I was sitting in an airport at 6am, waiting to board a flight when I observed a photo of Lady Gaga and the following thoughts occured to me.
5. An overtly sexualised presentation can make even the poorest product (see lack of talent) successful
4. Controversy sells
3. Honesty and transparency are the hot topics in marketing but at the moment, but sometimes it helps to create a little mystique by being (sexually) ambiguous
2. Look different, make your branding and packaging stand out in a crowd and be original (ish)
1. Pants are optional

I have not posted about this previously, but I love monkeys.
All my life I have wanted a pet monkey. I also collect toy monkeys (hint for cheap gift ideas).
And so, I present a list of my top 5 Monkeys
5. Pygmy Marmoset
Pygmy Marmosets are extremely cute little monkeys that only grow to about 16 centimeters excluding tail.
4. Proboscis Monkey
Its nose looks like a wang… c’mon…
3. Howler Monkey
These monkeys are incredibly social and very loud. Plus they live in groups of more females then males… yeah, they’re pimps…
2. Olive Baboon
Baboons are awesome, they live in groups of few males and many females so they also get their pimp on. They are also the spiritual advisers to Lions according to this documentary I saw called “The Lion King”
1. Spider Monkey
My number one pick is the spider monkey. Spider monkeys are the most intelligent of the New World Monkeys. They are large monkeys with long tails and live mid sized groups of 15 – 25, they then split into smaller groups during the day. This social structure is only shared by one other primate, the chimpanzee (which is excluded from this list because it is an ape).
