Brand Bites: Monty iPython App, Huggies vs Dads, and Lenny Kravitz Digs Water

Hark! It's Monty Python's new iPad app.

Below, watch the Huggies commercial that has dads up in arms, and more.

Chuck E. Cheese vies for title of top restaurant for a brawl.

Chattanooga, Tennessee gets its own typeface.

The most effective magazine ads of 2011.

The most popular iPhone apps of all time.

The story the State Farm-Aaron Rodgers "champion belt" commercials and how the brand benefits when other athletes do the "Discount Double Check."

The Muppets spoof The Hunger Games, hungrily:

North Dakota newspaper reviews new Olive Garden resaurant, gets mocked by Gawker.

The Otis Maybach torched in Jay-Z and Kanye West video is up for sale.

Ikea partners on pop-up houses concept.

The Colts, Peyton Manning, and the mega-millions.

Stay at the Holiday Inn, say UK Olympians.

So why isn't the iPad getting thinner?

"Top shelf vodka ice cream." What else would a Mad Men Ben & Jerry's flavor taste like?

Braved the new Doritos Locos Taco mash-up yet, now at a Taco Bell near you?

sweet People's Republic of China says:

Total Inspiration! It just can't get any better than this. I remember reading about her years ago and how so many people said no to her but she never gave up. I think stories like this are what entrepreneurship is all about. From nothing to something! She was persistent, consistent, progressive and most importantly passionate. Every new and young entrepreneur should take a page from her book. There are no set rules but follow the formula of hard/smart work + Opportunity = Success.
