Warning: If you recently had a loved one croak on you… you need to SERIOUSLY skip this thread.
While the Mrs. is reading and goofing on the local paper (you know, the one I work for???)… I hear her and her yenta friends howling like banshees downstairs over an ad:
Visit our online obituaries.”Share memories???? What the hell is THAT supposed to mean??!!??!
Yes I understand since we’ve signed up with Legacy.Com (oh yeah, gave us pens and a case of chicklets as gifts. CHICKLETS!!!! Why am I accepting gum FROM a funeral site??!!??!), they are trying to make money by getting families to purchase guestbooks for the, uhm, recently ceased & desisted.
WHAT ROCKET SCIENTIST THERE CAME UP WITH “SHARE MEMORIES”????
Normally, I’m your slogan guy, ok? I’m a regular Zeldman Jr. in that department.
I came up with:
“Step INTO a new way of life”
“Scholastic Sports: Tomorrow’s sports stars today!”
I even came up with “Come get raped at beautiful Mt. Airy Lodge” (Which the owners didn’t want to use for some reason).
But this??? I’m tapped.
Can one of you guys come up with a clever slogan for our online obituaries?
Anything has to be better than “Share memories.” Yeesh.
