When the faces fit the names

The Diary knows that PR people are a strange bunch. They have funny names, usually something like Philamena or Sage, and they spend their lives pretending to be nice to people they wouldn’t piddle on if they were on fire.

Cow is a PR company. They have a quirky business card with a blue cow on one side and a white cow on the other. And they have a PR girl called, wait for it, Daisy. Daisy at Cow.

Now we’ve never met Daisy, and we’re sure she’s lovely. Never follows the herd apparently. But even by PR standards it seems a bit weird. Still, good luck to Daisy. The Diary wonders if there’s anyone working there called Pat? But enough of cock and bull stories like these.
