Have any of you made up your own slogans?

1.  Each piece of string which has one end also has another.

2.  If you can't beat them, Nigel them. 

3.  Everybody has feelings.  Except Microsoft employees.

The word slogan is derived from Scottish Gaelic "Sluagh-Ghairm". A 'sluagh' is a slug or grub and a "ghairm" is an item of clothing (the root of the word 'garment'). Sluaghairm design was a pastime and carefully kept secret among 13th Century Scots who needed a delicate creative outlet to balance the dour persona they are stereotypically known for. These Scots would trawl the lochs and waterways for freshwater slugs and fashion for them tiny outfits from plant matter (traditionally leaves and twigs). Slughairm models were a precious resource as judging for slughairm contests was based not only on the technical complexity of the outfit but the demeanour and problem-solving skills of the slugs. Modern slughairmiers have been known to take to sea kayaks to hunt for rare seaslugs to model their ghairms. [Read more]

Little known fact, the word began being applied to marketing after Andrew Moray's speech at the Battle of Stirling Bridge (attributed to William Wallace in the movie Braveheart). Scotland's Slughairmiers were so inspired by his cry of "Alba gu bràth" that they began to embroider it on the slughairms (using spider silk). The trend caught on. On reading the embroidered message on a slug's jacket or hat, people would so often remark something akin to "that's a really nice sluaghairm" that the word began to apply to the message rather than the ghairm itself and this evolved into our modern "slogan".

“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”
