Say What? It's Say WA

SEATTLE - Have you heard the new tourism slogan for Washington state?

It's "SayWA."

We ran it by tourist Marcy Heim. "You mean like say what? Come to Seattle? Say What? Like that?" she asked.

No, not say WHAT.

It's pronounced "wah" as in, say Washington. "Oh, say Waaaah," she said. "We get it."

Do you?

The new campaign pitches "wah" as the sound you'll make when you see our state's majestic mountains, rugged coastline and glorious sunsets.

Too busy going after this guy
from the article

Thirty-five years ago I smoked dope and probably could have come up with something like that," said Darrell Bryan, general manager of Victoria Clipper, the largest tour operator in the Northwest. "To me, it's better to have no slogan than to come up with something like that. There's too much scratching the head about 'What does that mean?"'

They forgot to print the rest of the slogan:

Say Wa the Fu.........

Link Posted: 3/16/2006 8:52:12 PM EDT

Bryan said the slogan's weakness represents a serious problem for the industry: a lack of state support. The state's tourism budget is $3.6 million, which leaves only about $600,000 a year for direct promotion after staff salaries are deducted. By contrast, he said, British Columbia's annual tourism budget is about $35 million and the U.S. state average $12.8 million.

A few months ago Bryan wrote a letter to Gov. Chris Gregoire, suggesting she implode the tourism office and create an industry tourism association with real funding. She hasn't responded, he said.

"A number of us are very upset about this slogan," Bryan said. "By having too little money you come up with poor ideas."

See?
It's just like you two nimrods to try to put the square peg in the round hole.

Go get our .5 mil back, and be my guest to tar & feather the dumbass Sum' bitch that approved the final product.

That sorta mission oughtta work out well for a bunch of fat-ass wannabe's. In fact could we televise it? Sorta of "Running Man" for 'tards?????


Seriously, I suspect I didn't much more of that bit of news than y'all did. The money would have been MUCH better spent going after drop-dead cases where the evidence presents itself. Like dope smoking GM's in large tour agencies.

What was this thread about again?

Oh yeah, spending a lot of money to come up with "say wa". You know... with the monorail committee being disbanded or found out or however you want to look at it, they had to come up with *SOME* way to spend way too much money for way too little. Excellent choice!
