We’ve all had bad days when we’d rather be anywhere but our desks.
Whether it’s a missed media opportunity, a client miscommunication or office drama, things happen, and we need a laugh.
Fear not, friends. Here are my favorite online stops for PR and marketing jokes when I need a break from my inbox:
1. When you want to feel better about pitching.
No responses to your brilliant pitch getting you down? Maybe you have an impossible topic or just bad timing? Feel better about your pitches by reading through PRNewser‘s Pitch, Please column. The best of the worst pitches to enter reporters’ inboxes for the month are hilariously put together in one big mashup. This month’s column reveals some pretty big pet peeves among reporters.
While you’re at it, be sure to check out Gawker‘s running series PR Dummies, which covers the worst pitches their reporters have received. And it comes complete with running commentary, done as only Gawker reporters can.
