First, let me thank all the creative types who entered the “Write a slogan. Win a book” blog contest.
The rules were simple, the number of clever entries astounding. What you were required to do was follow the examples from the “Honesty in advertising” blog, creating truthful ads for products or services; what these products actually are, as opposed to their official claims.
And for the first time, we have a tie! Two winners. (And yes, according to the newly revised rules,they will each receive a copy of my book, “All You Need Is A Good Idea!” and not have to share a copy.)
So, without further ado, the two winners, in alphabetical order. RebeccaRae@xxxxx.xxx and Joshxxxx@xxxxxx.xxx (who prefers complete anonymity to world wide acclaim).
From Rebecca, this gem, for the kind of cheap napkins we all buy and regret, and yet still purchase again and again:
And from Mr. W, a perfect reason why you can only refer to Blockbuster in the past tense.
