Clever or lame?

the "wisdoms" on the taco bell sauces. i like them. yeah, some of them are trying too hard but i like to think that Pepsi Corp. is really paying someone big money to sit down, and, day after day, think of genius sayings to imprint on sauces that will be emptied and thrown away within minutes of human touch. And i like to think that one day this job will be mine.

Here are some of them: (i will comment)

  • Bike tires scare me (lame)
  • Hello. (okay)
  • I M A HOT T R U 2? (really lame)
  • I’m in good hands now (lame)
  • It’s okay, you can say it. I love you too. (clever)
  • Mmmmmmm….Sauce (okay)
  • My sauce is an honor student at Taco Middle School (clever...sorta? i like)
  • Not to be used as a flotation device (eh...)
  • Pick me! Pick me! (lame. clearly i did)
  • When I grow up I want to be a waterbed (clever)
  • Where are you taking me? (what?)
  • You had me at taco. (clever)

so yeah, consensus seems to be on the side of lame.

did you only look at the sayings on mild sauces? it would be intersesting to see if the hot and fire had different ones....cuz then the "pick me, pick me" would have more meaning...b/c you picked it instead of fire and hot.

green tabasco sauce is wondrous, so by analogy green sauce must be good. and it says secret. shhhhhh.
