Dead Slogan Society!

<big><big>DEAD SLOGAN SOCIETY!!!<small><small>
So we all have that one slogan that we wish did better. That ONE slogan that we liked, but just went in the tank... This is were we can work together, to improve that slogan, dig it out of the grave, and place it right back on the mantle where it belongs... Post these Slogans in here in bold We will work together to help edit, slightly change, and come up with a better slogan as a team.</big></big></small></small>


Anyone is invited to help out with rephrasing or repairing slogans. I won't be able to do it all myself!

Reading this Shirt will make you Yawn.

"Jah Bless the Jobless."

I thought if you put on a faux-Jamaican accent, it works quite well; it appears not.

Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

tracer I like your slogan as a motto, but I don't think I would wear it. Most people don't want their shirts to be deep they just want something funny. Your slogan is really good but this isn't the right audience.

@ RossmatI am redundant and I repeat stuff a lot

What if you said, "I'm redundant, and by that I mean, I'm redundant."

@ TimScribble

Reading this Shirt will make you Yawn.
I have no suggestions for this one, maybe someone else can help ya out.

When Life gets you Down, Remember, It once gave you Lemons

When life gets you down, it will apologize with lemons.

Maybe I dunno

@ Brian, James Dean....why?

@ SoldierofGondor
Don't feed the animals. They'd rather eat you anyway
Funny idea... maybe you say something like
"Don't feed the animals, they are aggressive carnivores ." or something like that?

Thanks for volunteering to play my theme song. Start clapping.

P.S. I love how you took comments on the blog and turned it into a slogan workshop kind of thing. Brilliant Sir, just brilliant!

Help! I was turned into this shirt by an evil wizard!

Hahaha, nice one... I might just turn the phrase
"Help! An evil wizard turned me into this shirt."

Simpletinrobot

Sweet, mind if I use that?

Retroludo

Hmmm for the Don't feed the animals one how about:

Don't feed the animals, limbs do not grow back
or
Don't feed the animals, you only have 10 fingers

I just submitted this masterpiece. We'll see how it goes.

Here's a little advice for all sloganeers. It's not a guaranteed win, but...

Humor is just perceived as something that is a surprise. It's an outcome other than what the audience or reader expects... The longer you lead them to believe one thing before the payoff, the funnier it is.

@TimScribble

"Reading this Shirt will make you Yawn."

How about:
"I bet this shirt will make you yawn"
or
"This shirt will make you yawn"

finally. a martiandrivein workshop. classic.

so, there would probably be 2 that i wish had done better (any help for refinement is much appreciated):

If you're lonely, take martial arts for a good sidekick.
Public transportation sucks. I'd rather take the bus.

in terms of help/advice, let's see...

i agree with rolf about twists at the end. Horseface, you're "rich" slogan made me chuckle. what if you twisted it into something like "I've been working my whole life, and dark chocolate is still richer than than I am."

Tim, "reading this shirt..." How about: "Start Yawning Now" or "This shirt proves that yawns are contagious."

i am in love with that one, brian.

Snoopyheartshobbes

My slogan.
"Waving: The handshake of germaphobes."

My most successful yet as far as percentage.....but it's stuck at only 25 votes. How do some people get so many votes?

Retroludo

Tis a mystery to me how some people rack up those votes. Over time mine have gradually increased but not by a lot.

Out of 10 people tested neither understood ternary numbers. the other mistook it for binary.

Brett, why is that slogan not submitted?

bsweber

hahah, doh, i just remembered i never actually subbed it

guess it wasn't appropriate for this blog then

i'll sub it now

bsweber
bsweber profile pic Alumni

also, there are apparently too many letters to sub it?

bsweber

and by that, i mean it's too long

What about...

The way you kiss your mom is not the way I kiss your mom.

For fast, effective relief of drowsiness just add zombies

I might say "For fast, effective relief from stress, just shoot zombies." ? I dunno I kinda like all of yours... I'll dwell on them for a while.

"Thanks for volunteering to play my theme song. Start clapping."

I actually think this would work better as a colab with some version of "Thanks for volunteering to play my theme song" over music notes that make up said theme song.

Retroludo

Ooh nice might have to give that idea a try.

how about "sleeping without dreams is as boring as Nebraska."

haha I dunno, try to make non-REM sound really really boring, via comparison and over exaggeration.
