Reno Mayor "Embarrassed" By Proposed Tourist Sloga

Post by flatlander13 » Thu Sep 24, 2009 3:28 pm

The Mayor of Reno didn’t like the town’s proposed new slogan, "A Little West of Center," so it was tossed out. What slogan would you give to Reno?

I’ll go first……………..

“Reno, The Gate to the Burning Manâ€

The previous mayor actually approved this slogan back in the 90's: "Reno Reno - Twice As Friendly". What shlock.

Here's mine that pisses off the purists:

Reno: The new california :cry:

I want to know whats wrong with "The Biggest Little City"

Sparks recently changed its slogan from the masculin sounding "The Rail City" to the f..kin fag sounding "The Fesssttivvle City." There is even talk of changing Victorian Square to Fesssttivvle Square (I guess the trains will be going) and the Sparks Marina to Celabration Lake Park. :?

Are we assuming it was being used as a perjorative? I read it to mean "stylish."

I cannot take credit for what I am about to post as I heard it at a stand-up comedy act. Also, apologies to all of the "special" individuals out there.

Perhaps the word dainty would have been better as opposed to fag since the word fag seems to be offending some and evidently not "politicly correct?"

Reno - A place where toothless strippers and worn out prostitutes go to die! (shamelessly stolen from UrbanDictionary.com :P )

Reno - At least we're not Ferntucky!

Reno - Eastern California :cry:

Mister, I love this one; "Reno: Gateway To Sparks". I grew up in Sparks, funny to explain it's whereabouts to the east coast relatives...the same ones that think we eat buffets at the Bellagio every Sunday. ::sigh:: :?

Buffets? Haven't eaten at one since last night. The $7.77 local special at the GSR.
