In an effort to make people actually read traffic safety signs, the state of Georgia recently asked its citizens to come up with their own slogans, then published the winners last month. It should be no surprise to anyone that Georgians are hilarious, and some of their best efforts include the following:
You are allowed to use turn signals. We checked.
If you don’t wear a seat belt, please be an organ donor. (This one’s my personal favorite.)
If you miss your exit it’s OK, we made more up ahead.
These and several others should now be gracing the fine streets and highways of Georgia. Who says safety has to be boring? If only I’d known about this content, I would have submitted the obvious winner: “What’s the hurry? You’ll be dead soon enough.”
Wendy’s Twitterslams Burger King
Recently Burger King decided to mock rival Wendy’s by taking a picture of the King in front of Wendy’s with a sign saying, “Roses are red, violets are blue, patties are round.” Wendy’s wasted exactly zero time in responding with a much more effective, “Looked who dropped by to see what Spicy Nuggets were supposed to taste like.” And did they stop there? Absolutely not. As Wendy’s fans started piling it on, Wendy’s responded to just about every comment, assuring one fan who didn’t find the Burger King joke funny that, “Leaving you disappointed is sort of their thing.” Just goes to show what a few clever sentences can do for your brand awareness and customer loyalty.
How Lazy Can You Possibly Be?
You know the soul-crushing frustration of having to reach into your pocket for something? It eats up so much time that it’s amazing we can all get anything done during the day. Well not for Ben Workman of Utah! He decided to implant a chip into his hand so that he could unlock his car just by waving at it. That ought to save him countless seconds every day – except, wait a moment, no actually I can count the number of seconds this will save him. It’s about six.
