For years I have groused about the chicken joint that insists on displaying the teeth-grindingly inane Jeezus Luvs Y'all type of drivel on their sing. There is a pizza place down the street that has done largely the same thing with their marquee sign, but it wasn't quite as saccharine-y.
Recently the pizza folks have taken the focus off the Kingdom and shifted to more product-oriented slogans. I hate to admit it, but they should have stayed with the Jeezus stuff.
Their first non-religious slogan made me blink and look twice, but then I thought maybe my head was just in the gutter. The sign said "You turn our ovens on!" It made me think of the lyrics to the old jazz song "Slow Rollin' Mama":
(Don't tell me current music is any worse than the old stuff! Hip Hop may be less euphamistic, but its not any more blatant in its subject matter.)
This week they updated their sign: "You put the pep in our pepperoni."
Is it just me?
