We'll Blow It! (TWSS)

In my marketing class, we were assigned groups and given a marketing plan project. The goal was to invent your own business and go over a marketing plan in front of the rest of the class for a grade.

One of the groups in my class was an all-girl group, running a pretend lawn care business.

Girl:  We'll mow your lawn, plant grass, use pesticides to get rid of bugs...

She trailed off, trying to remember what she was supposed to say next.

Girl:  We do all sorts of things. We'll even clean up afterward, sweeping up the leftover grass or leaf blowing things out of your yard.... anything you need blown, we'll do it!

*Silence*

TWSS = That's What She Said

For yesterday's long ass Medieval Times in Dallas post, go hiz-ere.

  2. "Anything you need blown..." hahahaha
    Did all the guys in the room raise their hands? And boo on them for using pesticides in their fake business. That shit is bad for the environment.

  3. I kind of feel like can be someone's life motto. Like, not me, because you guys would probably judge me. But just, you know, someone.

  4. A Lawn care business would have been awesome in the 80s. Too bad it's 2011. Even though "we'll blow anything" is a good tag line.

  7. That would be one of those times when I would laugh at that poor girl, and no one else would get it. Because this town sucks. SUCKS HARD.

    Also, I want to go to Chicago too. If you get too much money, can you send some to me??

  12. This girl should so public speaking!

    I'm sad I am too broke to go to the summit. If I win big in Vegas I will be all over you, I mean it.

  13. Wow. That is fantastic. I think they should run with this business with that as their slogan. Someone else might have said this already but I don't care. Deal with it. Now I'm going to check out the mocking of Nancy Drew. I loved Nancy Drew books as a child. Tell me, is this going to hurt much?

  16. That is fantastic. That reminds me of in college where I had to give a presentation on the elements of art in an Extenze commercial. It's amazing how much things can be taken out of context for the purpose of humor...
