Unpaid political ad:

Folks, when you really thing about it, 10ftTall&BulletPrf's suggestion really sums up the situation. It will never go out of style or lose it's meaning (and you don't have to wonder now what it means...a couple of others are very good but also very esoteric).

Plus, it honors quasi-Texan Davy Crockett (after all he was from Tennessee) with a paraphase of his own comment a while back.

This is my independent observation, I have not previously consulted with the  creator of this caption. No money or any other consideration has changed hands (nor will it) over or under the table.

So, I encourage you to get your fingers to the polls and vote for:

 "You may all go to work and I will go to Big Bend!" -

I am presidio and I approved this message. And, yes, that is the line I voted for.

OK, my 2 1/2 cents....

Yes 10ft's is the accurate  8) choice, but from an advertising/marketing point of view, it doesn't roll of the tongue....

I must confess, that I voted for Jim's "Bend it"......his visual combined with the catchy phrase really won me!


Hey David, weren't there supposed to be two different slogan thingy's? One for the front and one for Virgil's bubble?

I've been working on a new logo for my website that I think turned out pretty well.  Regardless of who wins, I offer up this graphic (less the URL) to David if he can use it.  I don't know if Black & White / grayscale works well on a T-shirt or not.  It's kind of an art-deco-ish version of my previous graphic, but much simpler and cleaner.  

Then again, David may already have his own design in mind !

David, on another note, this is my 200th post. Does this mean I get to pick my avatar now?

Only one vote really counts.  This is just an exercise to make you think that this is a Democracy.  Kinda like in the Mother Land.  Vote for Stalin or DIE.  One name on the ballot.  I think Saddam also did this.  Casa Grande's vote is the only vote that counts.   8)  8)

Since David's footing the bill, so to speak, maybe he ought to break the tie with what he wants on his T-shirts.


"It's good to be the King"... some Mel Brooks movie.


Or maybe we can keep this going and count chads later!

Of course, in our own democratic system, when there is a tie in the U.S. Senate the Vice President gets to cast the tie-breaking vote.

David - If you chose to do this (excercise your inherent right as "King") we would in no way equate you with Tricky Dick Chaney. :P

My constituents will be filing a lawsuit in federal court in the morning seeking an injunction in this election and demanding a recount of the votes. This is to ensure that all votes cast were from registered voters and that no illegal aliens or women had voted. Oh wait...we gave women the vote, didn't we? Sorry Musey and TG. :P

Title: BREAKING NEWS
Post by: DavidW on August 02, 2006, 10:28:56 AM
Breaking News.........CNN is now reporting that there is widespread rioting in the streets of Weatherford, Texas due to the "in question" potential outcome of the vote.

An inside source of the DavidW campaign, speaking on condition of annonymity, said, "We have serious questions regarding the counting of the votes. Our campaign has a source, that has a source, that has a source, that says that ballots with hanging chads were not counted." he further added, "We have contacted the Reverend Jesse Jackson with this information and he has agreed to make an appearance at a rally in Weatherford to call for an immediate and full accounting of the votes." Another senior advisor in the DavidW campaign said that the Reverend Al Sharpton may make an appearance as well.
Title: bin Laden sighting....
Post by: DavidW on August 02, 2006, 10:54:05 AM
Breaking News..........There are unconfirmed reports coming from the Austin area of a sighting of Osama bin Laden.

A senior official in the DavidW camp was asked if they suspected terrorist involvement in the sabotage of the T-Shirt Poll vote. The senior official was quoted as saying, "We have heard those reports, but have no comment at this time." he further added, "We just want all the votes to count. The people need to be heard on this issue. Power to the people!"

Calls have been made to the CIA, FBI and Department of Homeland Security regarding the issue of possible terrorist involvement in the sabotaging of the vote. In all three cases the response was, "We can not comfirm nor deny that at this time."

An unnamed source from within the DavidW campaign has been quoted as saying, "It appears that there may have been a cover-up."

David Boise of BOIES, SCHILLER & FLEXNER LLP, after distancing himself from his involvement in the ongoing SCO vs IBM case, has been retained in anticipation of a prolonged legal battle between the Leftists and those on (in?) the Right.  Intoning the ghost of Davey Crocket, some of whom deem to be a true Texas hero while others declare him as the original illegal immigrant, Boise cast aspersions on the Hollywood crowd with vague movie references ("Bend what?) and a quote from Chad Stewart from "Chad & Jeremy" fame:

Quote
"Not my favorite thing to do, really"


He seemed satisfied when told that the case was not about Chad Stewart, but about that country in Africa south of Libya, but asked "There's a country hanging?"

We are aware of the missing ballot box in south Texas that gave LBJ the White House and we just don't want to see that here. Look.....we may be dealing with the same people who were behind the Roswell cover-up and the Hoffa disappearance. We have people looking into it."

Well, that did EVERYTHING to calm my fears of misdeed. Not that I don't think everything will be above board, but just in the interest of unassailable fairness I think we need Sponge Bob Squarepants as an election observer. His reputation for fairness and impartiality are beyond question.

Would that be KFC original or crispy? Don't forget to change your oil every 3000 miles.

Hey. What's happened to the tshirt poll?

I see the preferred slogan, "You may all go to work and I will go to Big Bend!" remains in a 4 way tie.

A few folks who still have voting rights need to do the right thing and put this over the top

Somehow setup the logon page that if you are a member, b4 you can do anything after you have signed in you MUST VOTE.  Canvas more votes.  Of course, only that those that have not voted can vote, except me and GUEST.

 :oops:  Oh, uh, sorry.  :oops:

I forgot about needing to prepare for the wedding.

I can't imagine what a job it is to get the Basin decorated for a wedding!

That's a LOT of decorating!

Maybe a giant one of those white fold-out paper bells strung across the Window?

Aww, I didn't mean that to sound negative! :(

I should have put one of these  :wink:  after that sentence....

Yes, 10ft......ALOT of decorating indeed! Although I think the "BIG G" 8)  will have that all taken care of for David and Sarah! :D

Hey!  I don't frequent the off-topic forum too much and didn't see the poll until just now.  I'll do the honors of casting the tie breaking vote!!!

I vote for ....

"Big Bend -- the last 800,000 acres of the Wild West!"     


What?

Oh, still a tie.  Darn it I take that back.

I think "You may all go to work and I will go to Big Bend!" IS my favorite, but I can't imagine not having the others as well.

If you're offering, I'm accepting. Large denominations work best for me.

You won't have to do without them, you just won't have them on your shirt.

We have to get beyond this deadlock....David.. .hows about a runoff among the top 4 if an executive decision does not pick 10ft's slogan?

All right! My voting finger is just twitching over the button waiting for the chance to make 10ft's slogan the official motto of BBC. Yeah! :D

So, now that I'm back, is this topic officially dead?  :?  I don't see any recent postings...

Just for fun, I had a recent conversation with a friend of mine that would make a great t-shirt slogan:


"I'm talking about BIG BEND. Not the clock, you idiot!"


It was quite humorous at the time.  :)

One of my favorites was about 30 years ago when I was talking to one of the Woodward Ranch owners.  He had been all over the place with an Army career and I insensitively asked him how he felt being back in the middle of nowhere (it was pre-conversion, ok).  His reply, "No whar Hell, son, I'm in the middle of everything."

Late to the party here.  Can I vote?  I'm liking the Crockett variation, with all due respect to Ross Maxwell and them as a second.

I just thought of a variation on the "Life is good" motto: Life is Good...in Big Bend.
