10 Yetis Good and Bad PR - Wednesday 14th February 2008

Good PR
Basements littered with crusty socks all across the country will be the places of euphoria today as George Lucas has announced that there will be another Star Wars film; albeit an animated one. Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be released on August 15th, but it is not yet clear whether it will go to the cinema or straight to DVD. Good PR for LucasArts, and also Cartoon Network who will be following the movie with a follow up animated series, also entitled Clone Wars.

These guys gave up a whole morning of World of Warcraft to pose for this photo.

Bad PR
Snorers have had in it the neck today in the Express, and received some really bad press. Apparently, sleeping with a partner who snores can lead you to an early grave, (if you don't kill them first), according to a new scientific study.

Sounds above 35 decibels, such as overflying planes, noisy traffic or a soon-to-be smothered snoring partner can increase the risk of hypertension, or high blood pressure as it is more commonly known, which can lead to heart disease, strokes, kidney disease and, wait for it... dementia. So, here are the possible outcomes of deciding to stay with a snoring partner:

1. You die an early, painful death
2. You go to prison for their murder
3. You go crazy.

Good choices, huh? Or you could leave them, but that's not what you signed up for is it? 'Til death do us part' and all that...
