We’ve had threads about this in the past, but rather than revive some mouldering old corpse, I’d like to make a fresh start.
I’m currently on my lunch hour, and one of my thoughtful colleagues brought me 2 of Taco Bell’s new chalupas for lunch. They were OK, not the greatest things in the world but I didn’t feel compelled to throw them away. So who is the marketing genius who thought it was a good idea to tell customers to do just that? “Drop the chalupa.” That’s just stupid. I know it’s supposed to be said from the point of view of the rat dog (which is easier to spell than chihuaua, or however it’s spelled), but I’m not a rat dog. I don’t want anyone to drop a chalupa on the ground for me, nor would I want to drop food I just bought on the ground for anyone else. It’s just not very well thought-out, IMHO.
So what are some current or classic slogans that confound, confuse, or just annoy the hell out of the Teeming Millions?
