Say WA?

I hereby nominate Washington’s new tourism slogan not only the worst slogan ever, but the worst waste of government dollars ever.

It took them 18 months, wasting tourism promotion dollars along the way to come up with the new slogan: SayWA. That’s pronounced “say wahhh.”

Of course nobody, and I mean nobody likes it.

And here I thought Oregon’s new “we’re for dreamers” slogan was pretty lame.

If this is the best that Washington can do, imagine the list of rejected slogans, starting with “WA’s UUUUUUP!!!!!!!!”

Interestingly enough, a quick look at the official Washington tourism site and doing a search for “SayWA” reveals a lot of broken links. The main page also no longer mentions “SayWA,” which it did a day ago. It took public outcry to make the geniuses that thought of it realize it was f***ing stupid? You’d think they would have assembled a focus group or two.

If they decide to stick with “SayWA” as their slogan, maybe we can change ours to outdo them. The new Oregon slogan could be “ORgasm.”

    I actually think “ORgasm” would attract more visitors to Oregon than we currently get. Let’s change it!

  2. Ian says:

    ORgasm’s pretty good. If only we had more of a sex tourism industry…

  3. Timothy says:

    ORgasm is better than “we’re for dreamers”.

    Texas still has “Like a whole other country”, which is marginally lame but at least demonsterably true.
