ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
“Koch Brothers- Hoarding all of your money to make more money”
There’s no link.
McDonald’s: We make you fat and stupid.
Facebook: Privacy? What privacy?
Google: All Your Data Belongs To Us.
I threw a bunch in that thread. It was fun.
I threw up a bunch upon reading it.
Some were pretty bad.
Boing Boing – “Reminding you that you live in the future.”
Boing Boing – “This banana, just look at it.”
Boing Boing – “Just look at it.”
Boing Boing – Christ, there are so many assholes.
Boing Boing – “Slowly turning into a mirror of Reddit.”
Snarky Users – “Making It Difficult For BoingBoing Editors To Entertain Them For Free”
Snarky Users – “Making sure you read the comments, too”.
Free Entertainment – “A thinly-disguised padding between the ads since times immemorial”.
Very true, all of it.
I understood that it was “Reddit, curated”
Disney: Preparing children for pedophiles since 1924.
Disney: Bringing together families and disabled Americans since the founding of Craigslist.
Jaguar: For men who’d like hand jobs from beautiful women they hardly know.
Heh. They did save the best for last in that skit. And it’s probably best because it’s so true.
Hummer: My concerns about adequacy dwarf my concerns about mileage.
A perfectly accurate, but equally snarky one would be:
Hummer: Exactly the same leg room as a VW Beetle.
British Petroleum: Yeah, We’re Sorry. What Are You Gonna Do About It?
Fukushima: Yeah, We’re Sorry. What Are You Gonna Do About It?
Exxon: Yeah, We’re Sorry. What Are You Gonna Do About It?
. . .
If we’re going for realistic, none of those companies are sorry.
It’s the “we’re sorry you were offended” apology.
With the eyeroll implied.
I suppose it depends on how you define “realistic slogans” … for example, the aforementioned “McDonalds: we make you fat and stupid”, while true, is probably not their intent. Their intent is to get your hooked on cheap addicting food..
When it comes down to it, probably almost every company can boil down to “doing whatever we can get away with it to make money for our shareholders” … but that isn’t as much fun as all the responses :)
AT&T: We’re too big to care.
Covered, since 1969.
I’ll just leave this right here.
Yep, pretty much.
Telco Consolidated: Trust ← us.
Archer Daniels Midland: We brag about extracting vitamin C from corn. We then sell you quasi-food products made from corn that lacks vitamin C, as well as vitamin C supplements at a considerable mark-up.
