1) For the first time, saw a nickname for Corbyn, Magic Grandpa. Surprisingly, it appeared, in two articles, by two different authors, running almost side by side. The first article also called him "the imbecilic Catweazel-Lenin hybrid". I had to look up Catweazel. Turns out it was misspelled, too :-) Perhaps the author and the proofreader were thinking of weasels.
2) A somewhat cynical take on advertisers:
"For about 20 years the advertising industry has engaged itself in a bizarre charade called 'Pretending to be left-wing'.

And although advertising remains the acme of capitalism, they like to pretend it’s a compassionate, caring, almost anti-capitalist co-operative. It’s almost beyond satire, because it’s hard to imagine a more ruthless, right-wing industry than advertising"
