Lately, I've been noticing the tag lines on a few of my favorite blogs and laughing my ass off. For some reason, it's only now that I'm realizing how funny and clever some of them are. Here are a few of my favorites:
"Neither representing nor keeping it real" - Dooce
"You don't know what it is, but you know you like it." - Finslippy
"Proof my children will be using their college funds for therapy." - Cynical Dad
"25% of human genes are the same as a banana. Get over yourself!" - Banana
"Where sacred cows are slaughtered and served medium rare." - Alex Blagg
Needless to say, I think I need a new catchphrase for the MetroDad site. Somehow, the tagline "I Rant, Therefore I Am" isn't doing it for me anymore. However, after trying to come up with some new taglines, I'm realizing that I'm absolutely terrible at this. After thinking so hard that I got a brain freeze, the only ideas I had were...
MetroDad: "Finally, a website we can let the servants read!"
MetroDad: "No batteries included and no strings attached."
MetroDad: "Not as good as it used to be."
Pretty fucking lame, eh? I really can't come up with anything. Maybe I'm overthinking the whole issue. Anyway, instead of giving myself an aneurysm, I decided to do what I always do when I need some honest advice...
I turn to the internet.
I'm always boasting to my friends that my readers are the smartest, funniest and wittiest people out there. Whereas most of society believes me to be a pompous ass, you guys "get" me. Therefore, who better to come up with a tagline for the site than you guys?
But I'm throwing out a twist here and offering a prize for the most creative tagline. Winner (as determined by myself, the BossLady and the Sweepstakes Division of Price Waterhouse) will be the lucky recipient of a brand-new portable Insignia DVD Player. (Yes, this is the same DVD player that I wrote about a little while ago.) It's a very cool product that would be great for long summer drives in the car, airplane trips to see the grandparents, hanging out in the backyard, or watching porn in the bedroom.
So, enter to get yours now! No purchase necessary! Enter as often as you like!
I know a lot of you readers are in advertising (Mom-101, Bacon Grease, Virgo, Concha et al.) so you may have a slight advantage here. However, I only need one good tagline so I'm hoping that someone can come up with something clever that epitomizes the essence of this site.
Ready, set, go!
(UPDATE, July 5: Congrats to SpikeyMikeP who wins with "Poppycock from a Cocky Pop." These were some great entries and I think I'll start alternating them on a semi-regular basis. Thanks for playing, everyone!)
