Do What They Say? Umm No Way!

Ever wonder what would happen if things were taken literally from advertising that you heard? Wouldn't it be hard to flip one the bird? What would you do? Grab a bird and flip it at a person in your view? Anyway, today we look at that at my bay.

It is mouth watering good.
So your mouth will water in your hood?
Drooling like a mutt?
What next, sniff a butt?

It kicks ass!
No matter the mass?
Big or small,
Does it kick them all?

Improve your financial health.
Wow, doctors tend to wealth?
Well they take a bunch I suppose,
Making sure their wealth grows.

A bigger bang for your buck.
Ummm what the duck?
Can a buck explode?
Oh no! They have a self destruct mode.

All the bells and whistles.
Does it shoot missiles?
Can it have a kitchen sink?
We all have to drink.

Bet your bottom dollar.
So one dollar for a flea collar?
I guess that I can do,
And give it to a mutt or two.

Cheap at half price.
All of that for spice?
Why not put it on ice,
And save that saying for rice?

Dollars to donuts,
You have donut ruts?
What are you a cop,
Needing to make a donut stop?

Finger lickin good.
Manners aren't understood?
Licking and drool,
That is not cool.

Keep it under your hat.
But you just told the cat.
This is such a big deal,
You only want me to get the steal?

The cat must say you humans and your advertising causes dismay. What? Buy this, no longer causes one bliss? You have to drool and lick, whatever else, take your pick. Maybe mutts do take an advertising class and pass it on in mass. Then they go roll in the grass. About the size of it to my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  2. Been hearing it is 'Finger lickin good'
    It helps build that kind of special mood
    Ads distract thinking
    Meant to hoodwink
    The gullible just couldn't lift up their hoods!

  3. Advertising slogans are the nuts
    They get you in repeated ruts
    They may get to you with a little honey
    What they really want is all your money

  4. Consumerism en mass
    rise up from the lower class,
    take your place
    at the head of the class.

    Keep up with
    the Jonses
    no matter the cost
    your identity surely '
    will never be lost.

    Defined by your things
    such happiness it brings
    as frantically you shop
    til dead do you drop.

    Pffft, I never bought into that shite. A live defined by the acquisition of goods is a life not worth living.

    1. Exactly the way
      Here at mybay
      The Jonses can pound sand
      And take their toys hand and hand
      For I don't give a shit
      Everything could burn at my pit
      And I'd be fine and dandy here
      Things don't matter to my rhyming rear

    2. The thing I hate the most are those ridiculous big screen tellys. It such a status symbol and it's ridiculous. The other thing that irritates me are those fecking SUV's. They're ugly and have no style, yet everyone has one. And I was utterly gobsmacked to find out that in the States each person has to have their own automobile. The people behind me have 6 cars and two expensive Harley motorcycles. They must be in debt up to their arseholes.

    3. lol wow that is pathetic as pathetic can be
      6 cars at ones sea
      What a pointless waste of crap
      The tv is only 50 inches at my map
      But it was free
      So works for me

  5. slogans need to be very clever
    so they can get you to buy whatever
    these saying might go on forever
    helping them in their endeavor
    to some of these I just say never
    make change happen, pull a lever

    Have a good day at your bay
    as I have to go tackle the highway..

    PS - I am not actually tackling the highway cat..I know
    where your mind goes...too funny

    1. Pull a lever you say
      Does a bag drop your way
      Like some bag of sand
      Or does a door open to a new land
      There with Popsicles and lollipops
      And gingerbread cops
      Not sure where that came from
      Tackling the highway may hurt and then some lol

    2. pull the lever open the door
      there is so much to explore
      sailing a magic boat to shore

  6. My dollars always end up turning to doughnuts at my bay
    As my sweet tooth is out of control is so many ways
    These tag lines are just a way to get attention
    As they spew them forth with lots of pretension

  20. The dollars to donuts never made sense.
