WHAT COMPANY SLOGANS WOULD LOOK LIKE IF THEY WERE HONEST


Did you know today, January 6, 2015 is National Take Down the Christmas Tree Day?


An honest sign:

Another honest sign:

An advertisement for ant poison states "Will kill ants for 3 months." 
How do those ants come back to life?

Do you trust people that put things in quotes?
I wouldn't:



If companies believed in truth in advertising
many of them would change their current slogans.
Here are some suggestions:

I like businesses that have a sense of humor.

 I have actually seen these trucks with their slogans:


CULVER CITY MEAT & PROVISION—“You Can’t Beat Our Meat”

ARROGANT BASTARD ALE—“You’re Not Worthy”


These (from outwestnewspaper.com) are professed to be real.
I have no reason to doubt them:

ART”S ELECTRIC--“Let Us Remove Your Shorts”
HOGAN’S WINDOW CLEANING—“Your Pane is Our Pleasure”
SLIM”S SANITATION—“We’re #1 in the #2 Business”
ACME RADIATOR—“The Best Place in Town to Take a Leak”
AMAZING ELECTRICS—“If it Works, it’s Amazing”
FLORENCE GLASS SERVICE—Give Us a Break”
GLENN”S PASTRIES—“Get Your Buns in Here”
(& my personal favorite)
WILLETS WINCHING—“Can’t Get it Up?”

These are not current business slogans or signs (as far as I know)
but I think they should be:

VET”S WAITING ROOM—“Back in 5 Minutes.  Sit!  Stay!”
MATERNITY HOSPITAL DOOR—“Push, Push, Push!”
BRAKE SHOP—“Free Brake Check.  Stop Here if You Can”
ELECTROLUX VACUUMS—“Nothing Sucks Like an Electrolux”
FUNERAL HOME—“Drive Carefully.  We’ll Wait”



I think word of mouth would be enough
to get shoppers in here:








I was reading this book today, “The History of Glue”.  The blurb said you wouldn’t be able to put it down----fishducky

    1. How do they get in between the bulb & the glass, which is screwed on tightly?

  2. I'll add mine: "Senior Adventures - weekly trips to the doctor's office." Thanks for the chuckles. These are great. I love the Harley Davidson one...certainly true in our are where there is 70% senior. Lots of motorcycles with side cars, etc.

    1. I take it that "good point" isn't part of the Viagra ad!!

    And really appreciate truth in advertising. I might not shop there, but appreciate it just the same.

  6. These are all great. I like "committed to excellence and whatnot" and the Pennington's one. Which reminded me I need to get some loose flowy tops for the hot weather.

  8. I really love the Red Lobster Cheesy Biscuits. I do go there for them, never mind the Sea food.

  9. I think I remember a movie about a crazy person who gets a job with an advertising agency and tells the truth about products; i.e., This laxative makes you shit.

    I would like to see more honesty in the world.

    Love,
    Janie

  11. Cardboard rings! My sentiments exactly. I also think of rice cakes as Styrofoam pucks.

  12. Loved the Gym's promise.
    I saw on a garbage truck in Florida "Nichols Sanitation. Satisfaction guaranteed or double your garbage back."
