We Are Some No-Slogan Having Mother…

…eh, Shut My Mouth.

According to USA Today, Atlanta has no slogan at the moment. Here’s the link;
http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2004-08-30-atlanta-slogans_x.htm.

And here’s a quote from the article;

…Today, Atlanta has no slogan. Not to worry, though. Atlanta’s promoters are crafting and shaping the next catchphrase. “As we speak, a group of people are trying to create Atlanta’s new branding campaign,” says Sam Williams, president of the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce…

Man. Forget Bill Campbell’s recent problems. Or crime in Buckhead after hours. WE NEED A SLOGAN, DAMMIT.

I suggest “The City With it’s Priorities All Outta Whack.”

Perhaps that’s unkind, considering I like the place. But that’s what you get from me at 6:57 a.m.

Please place your slogan suggestions in the comments following this entry. This is serious, people.

I’m not blowing goats here.


UPDATE-In the interest of thorough reportage I now give you as part of the entry my favorite suggestions from fellow metrobloggers thus far, as well as a couple I’ve come up with;

‘”Atlanta – New York without the cold”
or “Atlanta – We Say Y’All and mean it”?’-Daniel Moore

“Atlanta – What? What? OKKKAAAAYYYY?-or-Atlanta – IKEA is opening a store here, what else do you need?”-Kendall Meeks

And me-“Atlanta-safer than, uh….er…. Detroit!”Or-“Atlanta-we shoot to maim, not kill.”

Here’s a new one from blog reader Doug-I like it-it’s also in the comments-“Atlanta. Georgia’s parking lot.”

Actually, police chief Richard Pennington believes we even surpass great cities like St. Louis and Detroit, in our way. Click his name to see.

Keep ’em coming y’all. And I don’t mean just my fellow metrobloggers.

Ever’body, naaow!

    How about

    “Atlanta – Great Bar Scene… before 2 am”

    or “Atlanta – New York without the cold”

    or “Atlanta – We Say Y’All and mean it”?

    Okay, so mine aren’t that great, but I’m sure that people funnier than I can come up with some great ones – no?

    Atlanta – Where the playa’s play

    It was a song by Atlanta’s own Ludacris…

    I just cross-posted this to another blog (www.littletoyrobot.com). How ’bout we co-opt Craig Kilborn’s slogan for Baltimore: ├ČCombining the casual racism of the south with the industrial decay of the north.├«
