Don’t Mess with Texas

In the history of marketing, “Don’t Mess with Texas” has to be one of the all time best slogans. Sure Nike’s “Just Do It” is popular. And — in the last ten years — “Got Milk?” has come on strong. But I haven’t met too many people over the years who can’t name Texas’ motto.

What do you think is the best marketing slogan ever? Here’s your chance to vote. (And if you’re corn-fused about which one is tops, just remember, “Don’t Mess with Texas!”)

I never ask a man where he’s from. After all, if he’s from Texas he’ll probably tell me, and if he’s not I don’t want to embarrass him.
