BIG Chuckle

Generous gesture saves thousands of people … several seconds each

I get it. Life is hectic. It is difficult to find the time to even think of new year's resolutions, let alone write them down, and act on them. Now, it just so happens that I am a professional writer with a generous heart. So, as a late Christmas gift, I am offering some ghost-writing to every one of my 30,000 first connections on LinkedIn AT NO CHARGE! Yes, I am offering elocution as a solution in...

The Grinch Who Just Might Save Christmas 2021

While government Grinches steal more and more of Christmas 2021, there are so far no edicts that restrict the topics to be discussed at the tiny gatherings in Who(else is fed up?)ville. Smaller gatherings, in fact, may set the stage for deeper, more meaningful discussion of contemporary matters ... which will either spell disaster, or opportunities for intellectual growth. As you feast, feast, feast on your pudding and rare roast beast, we at BIG Media shall...

LOGIC: proprietary solution kills trolls dead

Well, I am proud to announce, we have finally devised a concoction that will exterminate those annoying pests. In Stage 1 and Stage 2 clinical trials, our solution has been 100% effective in making trolls disappear. Simply spray the trolls with...

Lessons in ‘coffice’ etiquette 

I have embraced over the last few years what I consider to be the ideal headquarters of the small business operator: the coffee-shop office . . . or, as I call it in order to save three syllables and therefore countless milliseconds per year, the coffice.  I use the coffice for almost all of my meetings with customers, prospects and colleagues. I do my administrative work and digital communication on my Mac laptop at the...

It’s time to play Burst Your Bubble!

Wow – I had the best Thanksgiving weekend! An amazing turkey dinner with my family, followed by a spectacular light show performed by Mother Nature in the form of aurora borealis. In a different kind of atmospheric bombardment, my weekend also included a lot of venturing into echo chambers and detonating truth bombs. So much fun! Way back in the year 2020, you needed to have the skin of a rhinoceros to dare introduce a concept contrary...

Friends, please share your bounty with all eligible media firms

Mission Possible: agents needed for daring operation

Reducing divisiveness in our society may seem like Mission Impossible, but I spy an opportunity to save the world from doom. While much of humanity is on Cruise control, I am on the Hunt for a team of agents to help save our Rogue Nation. It is no longer acceptable for highly educated, rational people to sit silently on the sidelines as ill-informed influencers poison people's malleable minds with terrifying tales of climate catastrophe. It...

Please wield your superior intellect with grace

OK, so by now it is quite clear that the people who read BIG Media content regularly are always the smartest people in the room. With that in mind, we are making a polite request that you wield your superior intelligence with kindness and humility. The people who visit our rivals in the sensationalistic sphere of mainstream media are generally not aware that they are universally ill-informed regarding our society's most pressing matters. Here are some tips to...
