Starting a conversation, with Ruder Finn

September 2009, by Anne-Marie | 6 Comments – latest by Niall Harbison

Business Cards can be a great way to show off your company’s products. But what if the product you’re selling is a little more… esoteric than that? What if you’re selling knowledge, expertise, experience? What if you’re selling a bit of shazam and a lot of pizzazz?

Well, you could go generic – stock photos of grey-suited businessmen striding purposefully towards a breakfast meeting, maybe, or an abstract blue shape with your company name in the bottom right corner. Or, you could get interesting. You could get creative. Like PR company Ruder Finn.

The pictures on the back of the Corporate and Technology team’s business cards are random in a good way. If a member of …Continue reading this article…

Question 43 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

September 2009, by Emilie | 9 Comments – latest by Gabi

What is the best way to start the week? Well, for me it is a strong black coffee but I heard that some couldn’t wait any longer for MOO thrilling cryptic questions, so here is the first one…

Hardboiled, Part Fourteen

Nick Puts it Together

As Ray and I went over what we knew about the case–including the new detail that our client, Mary, wore a wig to cover up her blonde hair–Nick was busy writing on a piece of paper. We were used to this, so we ignored him and kept talking it out. We figured the whole thing revolved around Moo and Richard Moross. Suddenly, “Brothers,” Nick said, “look at this!”

Nick held out a scrap of paper with a …Continue reading this article…

Question 42 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

September 2009, by Emilie | 21 Comments – latest by Gabi

Thanks for your efforts this week to find the solutions to our puzzles! You surely deserve your weekend. Before you go though, we have one last question for you…

The Third Zone: Before The Escape
It’s Friday in… The Third Zone.
You, along with Rod, Grant, and Blaise, have had an exhausting week. Unlike you however, our heroes are speeding rapidly towards the end of their journey. They may be moving at the speed of light now, and thanks to the power of story, they may continue to move for generations to come. But practically speaking, their existence will likely end abruptly after several more chapters.
But that doesn’t mean you won’t have to solve a challenge. Just because we’re all …Continue reading this article…

September 2009, by Emilie | 42 Comments – latest by Gabi

We are taking it easy today, moving gently onto the next question of our birthday Quiz.
Remember to answer in your comments!

Hardboiled, Part Thirteen

Ray’s Lament

I don’t like being the only one of us that can’t lie. Invariably, it means I’m the one who ends up on the wrong side of the carving knife. Life this time. Mary, or whatever her name really was, let her guard down when she figured out I was the truth-teller. And in that split second that she relaxed, we bolted. Ran. Scarpered. Fled. Out into the city we went. Instinctively she swung her blade, grazing the top of my tail and giving me a nasty cut. Still, she didn’t …Continue reading this article…

We’ll be picking our winners at random Monday morning. We now join the three bears as they continue on their adventure…

Unbearable Lightness of Being

Why the mice called with such a useless message is anyone’s guess, but as the bears scratched their heads and tried to make sense of it, there was a knock at the door. Momma bear went to open …Continue reading this article…

Question 39 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the magic number”

September 2009, by Emilie | 31 Comments – latest by Victoria

Here we are already, the last question of the day. It is time to enter the Third Zone again and… hopefully escape safe and sound!

The Third Zone: Beams of Light

Our heroes move even faster, blurring before our eyes until they resemble nothing more than the streaks of coloured light after which they are named. Like two-thirds of a rainbow they speed through the city, which begins to fall apart around them as Twingor the Troll lumbers after them. A scene that could only unfold… in the Third Zone.

At first Rod, Grant, and Blaise were simply fleeing the troll, but then they saw an exit. A small hole that leads they know not where. But as one they turn …Continue reading this article…

Unbearable Lightness of Being
The three bears didn’t actually need to catch any mice, as just when they were heading to the shop to buy a wheel of cheese, their phone rang. Baby bear, being the quickest, scooped up the phone.

“Hello,” a tiny voice said, “I don’t have much time. Listen to me very carefully:
NEHIS
STELB
NEDIL
ITTER
Did you get that?”

But before Baby bear could answer, the …Continue reading this article…

Hardboiled, Part Twelve
Prevarication

There was no way out. Mary blocked our exit, carving knife in her hand. She didn’t look like any farmer’s wife we’d ever seen, but we weren’t going to quibble. All the other details fit and we figured we knew what was coming next.

“I’m going to ask one of you a question,” Mary said, “and I know that one of you is incapable of lying to me. So before …Continue reading this article…
