    More Great/Terrible Local Advertising

    Time again to celebrate amateur creativity. 10 photos.

    1. Some bar

    Every 10th bar or so in the English-speaking world using this slogan.

    Grade: C-

    2. Dollar Giant, location unknown.

    Well, sometimes you have adjust you tagline for legal reasons. For instance: Goodyear's once was "The best tires in the world have goodyear written all over them." But a competitor challenged it and won. So Goodyear decided to add "We say..." to the beginning of the slogan— which was a really stupid move.
    Anyway, I like the birdseed type deviousness here, very evil.

    Grade B

    3. Guactruck, Manila, Philippines.

    I've seen that "If you're waiting for a sign..."line a few times before, so nothing special.
    However, that name identification layout is super smart.

    Grade: B

    4. Lincoln Storage, Salem, Ohio.

    No, Lincoln Storage of Salem, Ohio.
    Watch and learn how Manhattan Mini-Storage does it.

    Grade: D

    5. Hunters and Collectors Outlet Store

    Via facebook.com

    Sometimes, being clever is not clever.
    Like here. Third World prices? Probably made by third world peasants in horrible conditions?

    Grade: C-

    6. Baconery, New York, NY.

    Via i.imgur.com

    Kind of funny, but come ON, this is BACON!
    You guys could write something much more tasty.

    Grade: B-

    7. Ron Roesners' (sic)

    Via i.imgur.com

    We'll forget Ron has the apostrophe in the wrong place.
    Now, he has two slogans going here:
    "Pushin' to Please since 1980."
    Pretty good for a local business.

    Grade B

    Then, there's that bottom one, which he apparently thinks is funny...

    Grade: D

    8. Air Around The Clock, Coral Springs, Florida

    Via mangodebango.tumblr.com

    A lame double entendre.
    And, stop hitting on my wife.
    But, at least you tried?

    Grade: C.

    9. "Yard Work," Phoenix, AZ.

    Via dammitphyllis.tumblr.com

    YAY FOR HONESTY!
    (But, just like last time, I gotta take off points for lack of creativity.)

    Grade: C+

    10. Fuel Coffee Bar, Brisbane, Australia.

    Via i.imgur.com

    Very nice! — even with the...not-perfect Grumpy Cat drawing.
    Grade: A
