Word Nerd Challenge #11
A creative endeavor this week. So gather your monkeys and your typewriters and see if you can come up with some new city slogans and nicknames. Like we know New York is "The Big Apple" and Chicago is "The Windy City" (even though it's been proven that on average, Dallas is much windier -- today we have 45 mph gusts that will really play havoc with a wrap skirt).
Pick five cities, large or small, famous or un, and give them new slogans or nicknames. Be funny, be mean, be creative.
Los Angeles = Lo-Cal So-Cal.
Dallas = Big Hair and Bad Air.
Plano = Make It a Habit (for you out-of-towners, Plano, just north of Big D, frequently makes headlines for the rampant drug usage in its affluent high school population).
Cincinnati = Where Homophobia Starts at Home.
Waco = Open 24/7 for Jesus.
I know you'll do better. This week's winner (as determined by yours truly) will receive his or her very own handmade (again by yours truly) "taterquoise" bracelet. Spud jewelry! Post your answers in comments here. Get a-writin' right now!
