S’poreans should learn to write shorter slogans

Posted on 01 May 2013

Long-winded slogans are hard to chant, impossible to remember.

“Short and sweet” is not something Singaporeans are good at, as placards bearing slogans at today’s Hong Lim Park afternoon protest attest.

Long-winded slogans are not only unwieldy but also an eyesore.

And they cannot be chanted for effect.

Always remember, there are only two things in life that should be long: Love-making and your dong.

Therefore, these are the slogans that should be rewritten:

#01
Could be edited as: "We speak truth!"

Could be edited as: “We speak truth!”

——

#02
Could be edited as: "Repent!" *clap clap clap "Repent!" (As in "Defence!" clap clap clap "Defence!")

Could be edited as: “Repent!” *clap clap clap* “Repent!”
(As in “Defence!” *clap clap clap* “Defence!”)

——

#03
Could be edited as: "Serve the people!"

Could be edited as: “Serve the people!”

——

#04
Could be edited as: "Power to the people!" (Just like the advertisement)

Could be edited as: “Power to the people!” (Just like the advertisement)

——

#05
Could be edited as: "Law over man! Not man over law!"

Could be edited as: “Law over man! Not man over law!”

——

#06
Could be edited as: "Show me the money?"

Could be edited as: “Show me the money?!”

——

#07
Could be edited as: "Stop at two they said, it will be fun they said!"

Could be edited as: “Stop at two they said, it will be fun they said!”

——

#08
slogan-08

Could be edited as: “Overrated!” clap… clap… clap-clap-clap “Overrated!” clap… clap… clap-clap-clap

#09

slogan-09

Could be edited as: “Where are our rights!” clap… clap… clap-clap-clap “Where are our rights!” clap… clap… clap-clap-clap

#10

slogan-10

What… I don’t even…

But could be edited as: “Show us more love!”

    None of them studied very hard at school so did not go to Uni?
    or:
    ‘O-level protesters’.

      I think they just needed a slogan editor. I don’t think ‘slogan 101′ needs to be a subject in schools though

        ‘Simplify’ is not so simple..
