Deutsch Follows Path of Lindsay Lohan's Breasts

With Deutsch losing clients faster than Lindsay Lohan's losing cup size, it may be time to stop making fun of the debacle and simply feel sorry for Donny and crew. Just as it's shameful to humiliate poor Lindsey by making a spectacle of her declining breast size with the flawed logic all actresses should be flat, causing her to turn into Calista Flockhart with a nervous breakdown, so is it shameful to post pictures of Donny in a Speedo and rip Deutsch to shreds with rude, snarky commentary. Oh, who are we kidding, we love throwing the final sucker punch at a cripple who's just fallen out of his wheel chair.

The latest blow comes courtesy of Old Navy which announced the account would leave agency of record Deutsch LA and be divvied up among several agencies for project work. Deutsch will continue to work on the company's teen segmented and interactive programs while StrawberryFrog will take over TV and print for back to school.

I wonder if the recent exodus of Deutsch accounts relates in any way to his appearances on Donald Trump's The Apprentice TV show or his CNBC gig. Or perhaps it's his carefully cultivated "Bad Boy" image.

oh man, you're so funny! im sure all the people who are about to be laid off will be laughing their heads off. donny is an ez target because he's rich and has an ego. try to look past that to all the advertising people who work at deutsch now, whove worked at other agencies, and will again. like to say, hmm, when you were probably laid off and decided to become a blogger. yay, blogging!

gggggg makes a valid point. Sure, we can all sit on the sidelines and snigger and sneer at The Donster's misfortunes. A little schadenfreude is good for the soul and - let's face it - he deserves it. But it's the people who will be laid off who will pay the price for his hubris. The Donster's luxuriant lifestyle won't suffer in the least - even though his relentless self-promoting may be at the root of the agency's problems. Once again, the people at the top screw up and the people at the bottom get screwed over. Where's Karl Marx when you really need him?

Hold it! The big story here is the decline of the size of Lindsay Lohan's breasts. When did that happen? Where the hell was I? Oh, that's right, a mind-numbingly meaningless Deutsch poser party in the Hamptons.
