DIARY: TBWA gets a Reservoir Dogs Day Afternoon as safe tramps get shirty

We're all aware of how quiet life is at ad agencies in these hard times. But anyone looking for action should head down to ... TBWA/London's car park.

Yes, agency creatives were idling away the morning recently when, gazing out of the window, their attention was drawn to two tramps loitering in the car park. But unlike your usual down-and-outs, these two were bizarrely lugging behind them a massive, er, safe.

Said amazed creatives looked on amazed as the villains opened up the safe, removed something unidentifiable, then ran behind a conveniently placed skip to change into suits, before emerging a la cast of Reservoir Dogs.

Thus intrigued, one nameless staffer had a flash of inspiration and cunningly donned his gym socks on his hands - doubtless to avoid leaving fingerprints that could lead to false implications - before pelting down to check if the thieves had left any booty behind.

Unfortunately, the safe was well and truly empty.
