Condom-Nation

~
Over at her Blog, Karen had a brief post that posed the question, "What if condoms were corporate sponsored?" She had two good examples, which spawned this post of mine today. She had condoms sponsored by Nike which bore the slogan "Just do it." The other was condoms sponsored by McDonalds' bearing "We love to see you smile."
....To her comments I suggested using Wendys' "Big and Juicy," and are you ready for this "Where's the beef?" I also threw out the old Alka Seltzer jingle "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is."
....Then another commenter, Canadian Dude, added Budweiser's "This Bud's for you," Pontiac's "We are driving excitement," and McDonalds' "I'm loving it." (By the way it behooves you to visit his site, he has some funny stuff there.)

....Surprise, surprise, I was compelled to come up with a Blog on that same theme. So I took the idea and ran with it. Without further adieu here is a list, including those above.

How about:
Folgers-The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup.
Miller Beer-Tastes great, less filling
Twinkies-Hey! Where's the cream filling?

There's plenty more I thought of, but I didn't want to write a book! LOL

Those are all very funny. I think you got all the good ones.

I would add:

It's the real thing (Coke)
It's what's for dinner (Chicken)
Obey your thirst (Mtn Dew)
I love what you do for me (Toyota)

How about Song names on condoms?

Satisfaction (Stones)
It Ain't the Meat it's the motion (Maria Muldaur)
I want to take you higher (Sly and the Family Stone)
Signed, Sealed, Delivered (Stevie Wonder).

Somebody stop me ...

Canadian Dude said...

Great list... I think you've caputered the best. Thanks for the plug.

Cheers!

Hale McKay said...

Hmm .. String, maybe condoms with song titles should be a separate undertaking.
...Pushing Too Hard - the Seeds
...Mickey's Monkey - Smokey & Miracles
...And of course, the B-52s must have know a blog like this might come up when they recorded "Monster In My Pants."
...Somebody stop me!
