Wisconsin’s new slogan “Live Like You Mean It!”

wisconsin live it like you mean it

I always thought Indiana had the worst state slogan with their lame “Crossroads of America,” which basically means “Nothing to See Here, Keep Driving.” Well Indiana, you should thank Wisconsin for announcing today that their new official slogan is “Live Like You Mean It!”

I just about fell off my chair* when I heard this hilarious news. Have you ever been to Wisconsin? Has the Wisconsin Board of Tourism ever been to Wisconsin?!? Wisconsin is not a bad place, in fact I like a lot of things about Wisconsin, but it’s hardly a seize-the-day kind of place. Maybe seize-the-nachos and beer. Carpe diem? Nope.

Now if you are from Wisconsin and think I am unfairly categorizing Wisconsinites as “fat” please do not waste your breath. I have lived in the Midwest my entire life so I know firsthand what a bunch of fat fucks we (not me) are. We like our meat, we like our cheese and we like our beer. Then we like some more meat, some more cheese and 6 more beers. If you give us a salad it fucking better be covered in cheese and bacon or someone is getting hurt.

Back to the topic… how exactly are people from Wisconsin meant to live? What if they don’t “mean it,” should they give up hope and sit around getting fat and drunk? Hey, that sounds a lot like Wisconsin! Perhaps a better slogan would be something like “Mean to Live but Have Another Beer Instead.”

    When I saw that picture I thought of a new slogan for them: “I’m special!”

    Honestly, it won’t kill them to get off their fat asses and jog around the block a few times a week.

    “Where’s the Cheese?” would’ve been much better. And it would’ve shown that they may be fat, but they have a great sense of humor.

    I’m disappointed in you Wisconsin! You have so much more to offer. Sigh.

    Yours – How about “Wisconsin, We’re Special!”

    Creature – I love the idea of having a sense of humor about your own state slogan! “Wisconsin, Fat and Loving It!”

    Actually, “Where’s the Cheese” would be brilliant. I honestly think that would offer some great opportunities for a really fun campaign.

    Let’s face facts.
    1. Fat people are everywhere! Here in Southwest Florida they like to wear thongs, and yes men too! yuck!!!
    2. They should have went with the cheese thing it’s they’re most identifiable product.
    3. New Hampshire already took the best one, “Live Free or Die”.

    In retrospect they probably could have done better but after New Hampshire everything is a distant second. Btw is that really how people in New Hampshire feel? Live Free or Die is kinda extreme. What’s next? No Ketchup on Your Hot Dog or You Die?

    Just a shot from the not so distant past yjmml don’t get bent.

    People in NH are VERY serious about that slogan. Hello? Remember these crazy people:
    http://abcnews.go.com/US/Story?id=3290003&page=1

    Lots of Nascar too. And fireworks.

    Maine’s slogan is just “Vacationland”. Lol……just that. It’s so Maine to just have that one word. I like Michigan’s slogan: The Great Lakes State (no surprise there right Listy?).

    But yeah, Wisconsin could’ve marketed their dairy industry AND their tourism and the fatties with the cheese slogan. It’s a real missed opportunity.

    And I agree – fatties are everywhere! Except apparently Colorado and Minnesota. There’s never any fatties there.

    I think “The Butter Burger State” would be more fitting.

    Wow, did not know this blog was written by a fellow Wisconsinite. That slogan sucks. We should just cut the BS and quit pretending we are anything other than America’s #1 drinking state. I don’t live in WI anymore, but I proudly sport my WI license plates and I try to live it up like they want us too.

    Oh nevermind, we’re just fellow midwesterners. Bummer.

    Wisconsin: Come Cut Our Cheese

    check this out:http://monster-island.org/tinashumor/humor/stateslogans.htm all the slogans are perfect.

    It should be “9 DUI’s and you can still drive”
    “Where’s my Cheese, Beer, and Cheese”
    “Insurance, not required”
    “The Last German Stronghold”

    Just let me choose madison’s new slogan mr. doyle
    “And You Thought San Francisco was Liberal”

    Let’s just rename the 12 counties of Northwest WI to “The Meth Crossroads”
