Pastor’s Corner: Catch it!
Here are fun, catchy phrases, like “The Quick Picker Upper” (by Bounty), “Finger-Lickin’ Good” (by KFC), and “Where’s the Beef!” (by Wendy’s).
Some phrases we know well, like…“Have it Your Way!”, “Like a Good Neighbor…”, “Snap, Crackle, Pop!” and “You Deserve a Break Today!”
Some phrases are harder, like “Think Different!” (by Apple Computers), “Tastes So Good, Cats Ask for it by Name!” (by Meow Mix), and “Taste the Feeling” (by Coca-Cola).
More local, good phrases are “We repair what your husband fixed!” (by a plumbing company), and “7 Days without pizza makes one weak!” (by a pizza shop). One of my favorites is “No appointment necessary. We hear you coming!” (by a local mechanic shop)!
Or the more “thought-provoking” quips like “When I die, I want to die like my grandfather died–peacefully in his sleep…not screaming like all the passengers in his car!” And this one, “The taxpayers are sending congressmen on expensive trips abroad. It might be worth it except they keep coming back!” (by Will Rogers).
Here’s one by a guy who snuck around at night because he was afraid of others catching him. He asked, “What must I do to be saved?” Jesus said, “You MUST be born again!” Are you? Catch Him today!
