    Oops

    Apparently, Susan Boyle's PR people put out a tweet to promote her new album with the tag #susanalbumparty . Now had it been Kylie, I might have been interested but Susan Boyle, I don't think so.

    Was it a cock-up or a deliberate attempt to attract? I suspect it was a ploy.

    Lets just say "cock-up" wasn't what was happening at the idea of such an event :x

    I'm guessing it was a publicity thing, seems like a bit of a poor attempt though.

    Mistakes can happen, I honestly didn't intend any double meaning when I used cock-up. I wish I had.

    I offer a paid service where I'll take any company name/slogan/hashtag etc and give it to our pupils to see if they can make fun of it.

    Reminds me of the packaging of an Andorid Tablet we bought a few weeks back.
    Whether the company is Chinese or not they knew what they were doing with a
    company name and strapline line that.
