Fake News: France Desperately Tries to Surrender to Itself

President Chirac is reportedly frantically seeking the leader of the rioting "youths" who have wrought destruction in Paris and other parts of France. He hope hopes to tender an unconditional surrender to such a leader. If he succeeds, it will mark the first time France has surrendered to itself in this century.
Critics say his efforts have so far proved fruitless because the disaffected rioters lack organization and therefore have no leader. Supporters dispute such claims, and continue to cry for self-capitulation. Thierry Breton, the French Minister of Finance, has found a silver lining to the crisis, noting in this morning's press conference that the thousands of cars burned in the riots will have to be replaced. Breton says this could lead to economic growth fueled by increased auto sales.

Adcandy: Public Service Slogan Contest-May 2005

A slogan competition that mentioned my work:
The Are they Kidding? Awards:
In my opinion, fun is what makes advertising successful. - Ad Legend Leo Bogart.
These slogans are not presented critically. I actually am not sure if the they are intended to be jokes or not. (I have my inklings....)
"All Scripture, All the Time"
American Bible Association (David Lawrence)
I actually think this slogan would be good for one of the Christian broadcast networks. David Lawrence is a great example of what Leo Bogart was talking about when he spoke about having fun when creating advertising. Sure, you don't know whether Lawrence is kidding or not, but it doesn't matter, it still works. There is an irreverent eye-wink in many of Mr. Lawrence's entries, making him both a pain in the butt and an advertising natural. Here's a wink back to you, Mr. Lawrence.
Another slogan of mine it mentions:
"Waging Green."
Greenpeace (David Lawrence)
