Last month we posted a totally unsubstantiated rumor about a certain big name entertainment advertising agency that was giving their old AD's the heave-ho to make room for younger, cheaper ADs.
Many weeks later we noticed this late entry in the comments section:
So then I guess all you old Art Directors should stop checking your new Facebook pages and taking an hour and a half lunches and earn your 80K+ salary.

And yesterday we received an email titled “Suggested Topic” with no text other than a link to Federal Laws Prohibiting Job Discrimination.
Is there something afoot here? Is it possible that ADs are being discriminated against based on assumptions about their age or their inability to get down with their bad selves?
More importantly, is it possible to eat lunch in just an hour and a half?
