Word of the Day

Monday, June 21, 2010


I was thinking of the old time advertising jingles that we heard growing up. To be correct, a jingle is set to music. But for our purposes today, I use the word "jingle" to describe any advertising catchphrase. I had to google this because my memory wasn't so good, but here are a few examples from my childhood:

"Hungryyyyy, Hungry Jack. They gobble 'em up and the plate come back for Hungry Jack."

"All - tempa - Cheer"

"Please don't squeeze the Charmin!"

"I can't believe I ate the whole thing"

"Where's the beef?"

"Look Ma, no cavities!"

"Plop plop Fizz fizz O what a relief it is"

"I can't believe I ate the WHOLE thing

Okay, so your task is to come up with a jingle. I was thinking that the only product I have right now that I would like advertised is my blog. So please write a jingle for my blog!


  1. Wait, which blog? Word Joust? Life on a Limb? Rejoice in Christ?

  2. Hmm, to make it simple, maybe we should say "Word Joust". :)

  3. Just words? Not at Word Joust. Just have a minute? Just like words? Just want to have fun? Just jot down Word Joust.

    Oh, well. Guess that will have to do.

  4. Play Word Joust - where you really can have the last word!

  5. Like to play Word Joust? Just give us the word!

  6. "Hey,like... you should, you know, do... word... stuff."
    Word Joust. No where near as easy as GEIKO.

  7. Well, it's been almost a week. Any other takers?

  8. Okay, I"m going to declare a winner on this one. There were some great entries here, but I'm especially liking Nene's "Play Word Joust-Where you really can have the last word!" :)

    Congratulations Nene! I hope it won't seem like the booby prize that you have to come up with the next game. ;)
