Far From...Enough Already!@#$!
I apologize in advance for the rant, but I’ve absolutely had it with the Far from X…Close to Y, or Close to X... Far From Y type slogans, taglines and attempts at positioning statements. They’re everywhere from parks to casinos, golf courses to restaurants.
Relax, if you have one of these ‘catch slogans’ you’re grandfathered and you can continue to use such a tagline – you were a ‘trendsetter’ I suppose. But, everybody else, it’s too late; from this point forward permission to use any form of the aforementioned is hereby denied.
There comes a time when you just have to move on; find a way of saying the same thing without saying the same thing – you know what I mean? But right now these type of expressions have gotten to the point that they’re simply, Close to Lame…Far from Genius.
Come on people. We can do better!
p.s. Are there others that drive you nuts? Let's hear 'em.
