Officially Technological

Thursday, May 05, 2005

I want to do a study sometime and see how many people actually like the place where they live. Because I really think a lot of us like making fun of the places we live more than we actually like living in them. So here's my proposal. What's your state's marketing slogan? Is it completely cheesy and/or just plain lame? Then let's brainstorm suggestions for new marketing slogans. Brooke and I were talking about this, and so I know Michigan's and I know Kansas's. If you're not from either Kansas or Michigan, leave your slogan, and we'll come up with something more... "realistic".

Example:

Michigan
Actual: Michigan! Great Lakes, Great Times!
What it should be: Michigan! Where You Can Make A Living Off Pop Cans!*

Kansas
Actual: Kansas! It's Bigger Than You Think!
What it should be: Kansas! It's Halfway To Everywhere!


*For those of you who don't live in Michigan, we have a ten cent deposit on our cans.

REAL SLOGAN: Illinois, Mile After Magnificent Mile

SHOULD BE: Illinois: The Jerusalem of the Apostolic World!

New York

Real Slogan: I ♥ NY

Should be: We ♥ collecting your tourism $$$, but we don't ♥ you!

How is Indiana the cross roads of America?! I really think it should be something like: Indiana! The place where all the Michigan people get their "cool" fire works.

P.S. I agree with Aaron's "Illinois". That's much more accurate.

Beth and I just found Arizona's (they don't have it plastered all over their commercials, so we didn't know it off the top of our heads). I just begs to be changed.

Arizona! One Grand Adventure After Another.

That's a serious cry for help.

But it would make a good motto for me.
