On a graph with 'Wastefulness' along the X axis and 'Obnoxiousness' up the Y axis,, plot the size and position of all the advertising-supported business models you know of. Keep the graph within the bounds of good taste by calibrating it in mega-Saatchis, and by using the colour scheme that you think will be most attractive to avocado-eating ABC1 18-34-year-olds. Include a statistically significant sample of their names, phone numbers and tasteful photographs so that your answer can be verified by an independent panel of lonely experts.
I eat avocados. I hear that Patrick Moore is also partial to them. But I doubt that we share the political viewpoint.
And I think that all BBC material should be on UToobe. That should push up the ratings.
