The most popular answer to the question "What would you do if you weren't doing advertising?" was 'Other'.

I guess this includes some of the answers we had in the comments, which ranged from 'chef' to 'midwife' to 'Han Solo'.

I'm pretty sure the Copywriters among you were the ones picking Journalist as an alternative career, with the Art Directors leaning towards Illustration or Photography.

But who would have guessed that 'The Armed Forces' would be the 5th most popular choice? My explanation is there's a lot of frustration in our job, so the idea of being allowed to legally kill someone can seem quite attractive.

This week's poll is about how much you care. It's often said that advertising doesn't 'matter' - so maybe it's foolish to actually care about it. Then again, maybe the foolish person is the one who spends 50 hours a week doing something they don't care about. Vote now, in the right hand column of this blog, and I'd love to know your views, in the comments.
