Life Awareness Public Service Announcement

Well, I was going to try and capitalize on this 'parody' of an advertising slogan and hopefully be able to quit my job and write and be a dad full time, but I did a little extra research and found that that plan might have backfired and helped me to get out of my house and other possessions more quickly than I had anticipated. So, I'm just putting it out there. I'm not making any money on it. Maybe it will go viral and make a big stink anyway. That would be fun.

So feel free to disseminate this image and the slogan as you please. Do not make any money and do not try to advertise your own inauthentic Americanized Mexican food with the slogan, should you somehow find a way to do so. I think I'm going to make a t-shirt and a bumper sticker for myself, though. And probably something for my dad, who gets all the credit for this subtle yet simple piece of advice.

This would make a perfect team morale poster at your workplace, a fine yard sign for those many questionable drivers, or simply a t-shirt or postcard to offer helpful advice for life in general. I urge you to not make money doing this, but, certainly, absolutely, make fun.

Nice slogan and image! It has so many possible outlets! Madison Ave. he comes Mr. Maday.

Thanks, Ortho. Yes, it's really a universally applicable slogan. Especially during election season. The big corp might get angry, but how can you argue with it? I realize how sick it was to even think of capitalizing on this. It should be freely disseminated and belong to everyone.
