Back To School

Cavendish Primary School: Where Learning is an Adventure
 Captured by @falconermusic

 "Where learning is a tedious conveyor belt, run by people who used to care, but who now just desperately want you to get through various tests and exams devised by cretinous philistines in government laboratories*."

Why do schools even need slogans?!  At least this slice of Disney-esque nonsense isn't in Comic Sans.

*Not that this would necessarily apply to the staff of Cavendish Primary, of course.

Logistical Nightmare

PalletFORCE: the network that is owned by its members
 Captured by @falconermusic

 What is it about logistics companies, particularly ones that deal with pallets, that make them so bad with slogans?  This one rolls off the tongue as smooth as a Lego pineapple.

Installing boredom

axium: installing confidence

 Just bland.

Blue Sky Bullshit

mico pac: thinking outside the box
 Slogan captured by @Falconermusic 

 This is annoying.  "Thinking outside the box" started out as management speak, just like "Going forward", "Action" as a verb, and "Incentivize".  Now, however, it's passed into ordinary day-to-day language, and Mico Pac using it as their slogan only serves to reemphasise how this impacts on our personal interfacing on a day by day basis.

Naturally awful

Masala Indian Restaurant: All your Indian favourites, naturally

  Captured by @waldofabulous

 One of those slogans that's actually clever when you think about it rationally, but your gut instinct when reading it is to vomit at its naffness. The green colouring of the word "naturally" could only be made more cheesy by putting it in an angled faux-handwriting font, so let's just be thankful they didn't do that.

THE longest slogan on the high street.

  You know our thoughts on the "The" business.

Two for one!

merson signs: leading the way
merson signs, others follow

 Slogans snatched by @falconermusic

 Well, here's an interesting thing - not ten feet away from the not-completely-awful-but-still-pretty-obvious slogan on the van, was this bonus - with its dodgy layout and broken shift key, we liked this one.
