Conspiracists, start your engines: Nascar's newest

Slate's Seth Stevenson, who lives down the street from the Free Masons' national temple, offers the details of the group's decision to sponsor a Nascar team. Apparently, the super-secretive cabal of men who rule the world is running low on members. Of course, the implication here is that the next generation of puppet masters will, among other things, appreciate the fine art of driving cars really fast and making left turns.

The most shameful Super Bowl effort?

These days the real springboard for self-promotion is to bend the rules just long enough to get a brand to notice you and decide you jive with its message. Adrants tells the story of Sarah, a woman who tried to auction herself on eBay as a date for the Super Bowl. As we all know by now, selling your body is a no-no, but Axe liked the bold move and through no creativity of its own, made it into a promotion. Writes Adrants: "The company that prides itself in functioning as a woman magnet for men gave Sarah four end-zone tickets to the Super Bowl." Sarah will bring two friends to the game. For the fourth ticket, the marketer crafted a contest for some lucky schmo to convince Sarah why he (or she) would be the ideal date.
