Flack: Flack in pictures

1. You don't hear about PR agencies buying each other lunch that often. But Unity did just that for Exposure, Lexis, Mischief, Clarion Communications, Freud Communications, Waggener Edstrom and Open Road last week. To celebrate Mexico's Day of the Dead festival, client Benito's Hat Mexican Kitchen delivered free food in a special taxi (the Karma Kar) to those who sent the most tweets to @BenitosChat.

2. Look at this pair of willies. Two employees from Sussex-based Spink had sore legs after running a penis-inspired half-marathon recently. Company director Justin Wilkes and account director Nikki Button raised £1,500 for Orchid, the male cancer charity that exists to protect men from testicular, prostate and penile cancers.

3. The MD of PR agency LDR London Louis de Rohan found himself unexpectedly spending half an hour at The Dorchester with Britney Spears last week. He was brought in when his agency's South American affiliate Branding Latin America needed a Spanish speaker to interview the singer. It's a tough job, this PR lark.
