Telling customers to Shut the F*ck Up probably isn’t a very good technique for advertising, but apparently that’s one that works for European budget airline Ryanair. Customers get to fly cheap, they don’t get to complain. As the tagline says, With Prices This Cheap, Shut The F*ck Up.

Now that calendars are no longer essential items, it is nice to see them get creative to stay relevant. Tea calendar from Hälssen & Lyon has a strip of different flavored teas for each day. When the day is done, you could enjoy the strip of tea which they claim comes from “finely flavored tea leaves.” We just hope these strips of tea are resistant to moisture. The calendars weren’t made for commercial use though, and were only intended for the company’s select business partners.
