Speaking of gas stations, apparently a chain in Minnesota is using MY catch phrase as their new slogan in print and billboard campaigns. Namely, "You Bet".
Unconfirmed reports from readers up there in the fine state of 10000 lakes tell me its KwikShop. But we have those here in Omaha, and I've not seen the ads here. So it could be another chain. Some people call every station KwikShop, even if its a QuikTrip, or Kum&Go, or SuperAmerica.
Anyway, the chain doesn't matter. The billboards show junk food, or other similarly bad-for-you foods, in giant photos with this caption:
"Ice Cream...You Bet!"
"Candy Bars...You Bet!"
F, in, a, um, I hate you. I really, really, really hope your gas station ends up like that one I was stuck in front of yesterday, with HAZMAT truck action, fire engine action, and then out of business action.
Now that gets a You Bet. You Bet.
