    Isn't one of Connecticut's nicknames "The Land of Steady Habits"? Now just what should one make of that?!

    A guy I used to work with came up with Ottawa's "Technically Beautiful" slogan, he was not particularly proud of it.

    Ottawa has since abandoned it.

    Hahahaha! Great point! Maybe they did it that way on purpose, to make people stop and say, "Wait...", and then to bring it up in coffee shops (and Tele forums) across the land! :D

    Hahahahaha! That's in the same spirit as a now-closed music store here in my town:
    "Just Because You Suck Doesn't Mean Your Gear Has To." (Pretty blunt!)

    Gibson first used that slogan in the 1940s, when Gibson and Epiphone were competitors.

    Epiphone countered with "When Good Enough Isn't Good Enough."

    There used to be a burrito joint in Boulder CO who's name I forget, but their tagline was 'Burritos as big as your ass'.

    That’s from my hometown of Texarkana, although Fat Jack’s is about 20 feet over into the state of Arkansas.

    As a boy, I was sure the Chiffon margarine jingle went, "If you think it's butter, but it's snot: it's Chiffon" :eek::eek::eek:

    Built Ford Tough.

    Vorsprung durch Technik.

    Wait, that's not lame, but how many English speakers actually know what it means?

    I think what Audi is doing there is clever. When they introduced the motto, Audi was this vaguely European brand. The motto is supposed to remind you of their German engineering, even if you don't know what it means.
