We love the clinking Coca-Cola emoji but would still like to know where is the bacon emoji? We need tiny, cartoon bacon in our lives. The world needs tiny, cartoon bacon.

The Rugby World Cup kicked off last week and there’s already been an upset. Japan’s shock victory over South Africa has been described as a ‘miracle’.
Attention Muggles: Scientists have created an invisibility cloak. Who needs Hogwarts, hey?
In the Agency
It’s a busy week in the office! We have two university students joining us for work experience, and a brand new Account Executive, Liv. She’s practically famous, having been on the Antiques Roadshow trying to flog a sculpture. Strangely she won’t tell us how much it’s worth…
What We’ve Been Watching
We managed to pull ourselves away from the rugby long enough to see Andy Murray’s win over Tomic to put team GB into the Davis Cup final. Britain will play Belgium in November for the title. Congrats, Team GB!
The final series of Downton Abbey started on Sunday night. Not everybody in the office is a fan, but nobody can deny the brilliance of Maggie Smith immortalised in gif form. Smith gifs forever.
What We’ve Been Sharing
So Jimmy Fallon did a ‘Pup Quiz’ with Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting and everyone’s heart melted. Everyone’s. We’ve been sharing this with all our pup-loving friends (so that’s all the people we know, really).
