Atlanta: Everyday Is An Opening Day?

In an attempt to better market itself, the ATL released the above slogan to help increase tourism. They also spent about 8 million dollars coming up with a symbol and a song. Everything they've come up with has totally sucked. I can't sing or draw, but I can come up with assholish things to say, so here are some of my suggestions for the Atlanta city slogan.

1. Atlanta: Come for the weather, stay for the religious persecution.

2. Atlanta: Where the fuck else are you going to go in the Southeast? And don't tell me Birmingham Alabama, liar.

3. Atlanta: Chances are you'll get shot by a rapper, can't do that in Des Moines, Iowa.

4. Atlanta: We have an aquarium!!!! With FISH!!!!

5. Atlanta: Yeah, Michael Vick still can't pass, but he's a really exciting player nonetheless.

6. Atlanta: Hawks and the Thrashers? Never heard of them.

7. Atlanta: Sure the Gold Club is closed, but the Cheetah is still open!!!

8. Atlanta: I guess a bomb went off during the Olympics, but only one person died.

9. Atlanta: What happens in Atlanta stays in Atlanta. Didn't you hear we have legalized gambling and prostitution now!!!!!!(wink)

10. Atlanta: You can kick Ted Turner in the balls for a quarter.

editor's note: It's sad but the Hawks and Thrashers are my two favorite sports teams in this town.

Randy Wittman's been on a downhill slide ever since he left my beloved Pacers. So's yer boy Al Harrington. HA.

That Dallas Austin song SUCKS! I heard it on NPR and almost laughed my way into a wreck.

That song is terrible, a true eye-sore for the city. Fucking Hawks, they piss me off so much. I was optimistic for this season but why even do that to myself anymore? Fucking pathetic, I'll continue to cheer for them but an 0-8 start is fucking ridiculous, if they don't win 30 games this year (which they won't thanks to the great start) I'll be extremely pissed. Your Pacers are looking good. I think Carlisle is one of the best coaches in the league. You just better hope Artest can keep his head straight (see most recent post).

Atlanta: come live downtown, you'll be here all by yourself!

Atlanta: go to a Braves game in the middle of nowhere!

Atlanta: are the Hawks really a team?

Atlanta: nothing like Mexicans and traffic!

Atlanta: say you live there even though you actually live 20 miles north, south, east or west!

Atlanta: don't forget your khakis, and get used to the racial slurs!

Atlanta: sure the rents are cheap, but the traffic here is worse than in LA!

Racial slurs are for good reason. 6th highest crime city in the country. Wonder why.
