5 Things :: what people really think

So I stumbled upon this fun blog the other day – Honest Slogans – and I was able to distract myself from the pain of my strep throat by clicking through its archives.

Clever stuff, I tell ya.

And because I love you, my friends, and because I bashed you over the head with loads of text in yesterday’s post, I’ve decided to be kind and give you some brain candy to round off our week. (Or start off our week? Depends on how you look at things, I guess).

Here, then, are my top 5 picks from the Honest Slogans site.





Admit it. You know you snorted at some of these.  😜  Now go do yourself a favor and rummage through the archives like I did.

Better than the Sunday funnies.

  1. I see that the History Channel as changed because it was known as the Hitler Channel.

    I loved the one on IKEA, I think that is so true. Having wasted way too much time trying to compile something that makes me feel I’m failing some sort of twisted alternative reality intelligence test, I’ve made an executive decision that we only buy new furniture if it is a) delivered and b) already assembled.

    Of course you dug these up. And Cliff jumped right in. What a fun new friend. You are 21st century at its best.

      Yes, for all that I’m a Luddite deep down, I do appreciate how the interweb has made making new and unique friends such a possibility. But be careful, Ms. Connie. He’s “Clif” with one eff. LOL. Even his gallery website is called that. J’adore!

    Hey, thank you so much for sharing these! I am the creator and owner of Honest Slogans. Make sure to stay tuned for more, as I try to post new ones weekly.


    • mtsedwards says:

      Clif! You grace us with your presence! Thanks for stopping by! (I’m getting all fangirl squee here). You are clever and witty and I am definitely gonna stalk – erm, I mean follow – your site from now on. I hope you won’t mind if I feature your gems from time to time. Perhaps I’ll do clothing store ones next time since this is, after all, a style blog. πŸ˜€

    So good! I’ve jsut been shopping at Ikea, and that one got me. : >

  6. Hahahaha. The IKEA one is totally true; we have the worst time putting together IKEA furniture!

    Sorry about the strep; feel better soon!

    • mtsedwards says:

      Thank you, Alexander Fleming, for discovering penicillin!

      And yes, the IKEA one is my fave too. Although Wikipedia runs a close second.

  7. The History Channel one is my favorite. So true!
    The white crayons are useful if you’re using dark paper. 😜

    • mtsedwards says:

      Aly said the same thing! Actually, she said, “I use the white crayon to lighten colors. I love the white crayon! It’s not useless. Don’t feel bad, white crayon.”

    • Clif Dickens says:

      I wholly agree about the white crayon being of use. As is true with many of the Honest Slogans on the site, exaggerations are implemented for comedic effect. In most contexts of crayon use (e.g., children coloring in a coloring book), the white one seems to be pointless. However, they are very useful in water color paintings as well as other non-conventional purposes.

      • Oh, I’m not saying it isn’t mostly true, and it’s definitely funny! πŸ™‚

        My job requires me to order tons of photo copies and they always come with crazy colored paper in between the collated sections. That scrap colored paper is what I give my kids to draw on, and the white crayon is useful on most of it. It is quite useless in a traditional coloring book. πŸ™‚

        • mtsedwards says:

          You guys are having a conversation party without meeeee! LOL! Yep, my knee-jerk reaction to the white crayon was “Totally true!” but then again, I’m not an artiste. πŸ˜€

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
