.......DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS.......



Would like to thank all of you that voted for Don't Mess With Texas in the advertising poll..'cause we won...over 400,000 votes...mostly people that messed with Texas and got their asses canned...like David Crosby and Ozzie Osbourne.This was for the Advertising Week's 2006 Walk of Fame contest.The "Don't Mess With Texas campaign began 20 years ago to combat roadside liter and its pickup cost.. Our slogan beat out 25 other well-known slogans including 'Just Do It'by Nike, the California Milk Processors Board's 'Got Milk'and 'Have It Your Way'by Burger King.It also beat out Campbell's Soup's 'M'M M'M Good,'Dunkin Donuts 'It's Time To Make The Donut's,'and Wheaties'Breakfast Of Campions.'
To celebrate our big win, "Don't Mess With Texas" victory banners lined New York's Madison Avenue on Friday, and the slogan will receive permanent recognition in the Advertising Icon Museum in Kansas City, Mo., wh
ich opens in spring of 2008.
See, you guys...it's not just me you don't wanna mess with...it's the entire state.Something the Tennessee Titan's and the Miami Dolphin's found out today too..at scores of 45-14(Dalla )and 17-15 (Houston)...Ahhhhh life is good...
Ya'll come down and see us..ya'hea?
But don't fucking liter..

I do not need a advertisement to tell me not to mess with Texas. I have always known not to piss a Texan off. I thought it was one of those things that was included with common sense. But obviously common sense is seriously lacking in many these days.

I would never dream of littering in Texas.

I know better than to piss off a Texan. . . Momma didn't raise pretty kids, but she didn't raise stupid ones either LOL!!

And the Lions get their asses handed to them yet again today. . . Fucking morons!! If Bill Ford wants to cut his losses, he needs to dump this team on the first person dumb enough to take them (preferably to a different city). . . Detroit is embarassing enough without these losers. . .

Laterz!

Let's see Dallas won, the Gump is still President and people are suprised that a member of Congress likes underage kids.
I wonder it Hell has frozen over yet?

Now I have to find a new state to mess with.

I thought it was "Don't mess with Jackie Sue".......

Ol' Lady said...

Ya think maybe it has to do with the fact the people can carry guns down there legally???

Excellent slogan! What pisses me off is when I see parents littering in front of their kids! In any state or country it's just gross.

Snave said...

The only Texan I know who I wouldn't mind pissing off is Bush, but he isn't really from Texas, right? Do Texans who know they are real Texans really think of Bush as a Texan? Anyway, I always thought the guy was from Maine.

:P fuzzbox said...

It was also a good day for the TT Red Raiders with a last minute win over the freaking Aggies. Woo Hoo. Gotta luv Texas Football. But what the fuck is with Texas playing Sam Houston State. Talk about a hollow victory.

yellowdoggranny said...

shane:..is you spam?
junebugg: well that is supposed to be just understood.
ol lady: legally and illegally..plus the kids are crack shots too from hunting all their life.
sue: one of the first things i taught my kids..dont liter...
snave:nope bush is not a texan..he was born in Conn. and was only here as a kid and then went to yali where he was such a dofus, he couldnt play sports so he was a 'fucking cheerleader'..actually we real texans have an expression for people like bush...'all hat and no cattle'..
fuzz:whoo hooo i love ttec..i have been following their quarterback since he was in high school at ennis..baylor won too..so it was a great weekend..

Babs1 said...

Those ads used to get on my nerves. But then I figured people should know better than to litter. And then Bush won our state, so that tells me people don't know shit.

Did it beat it the most famous slogan in Blogville? "Don't mess with Jackie Sue, unless you want to be blue; let me give you a tip, she has the power to big..."

Scottish Toodler said...
