Non-toy ad Tuesday: Office cats, bubblegum, beer, cigarettes and Saturday Morning TV

As TVTA stumbles from the holiday season into another New Year we must confess there has been much overindulging at the office (not work we hasten to add). Still, everything in moderation we say – with just a little bit of excess to keep things interesting. Alas, paperwork duties have fallen to poor Wooof, our office cat, who has been stoutly keeping things going this past week and managed to find the following advertising goodies in the wine cellar on one of his many excursions down there. Well done Wooof!
