i did not come up with the title cleveland's a plum. i mentioned the origin of my blog's title on my first post but here's a refresher course.
cleveland's a plum was a tag line that was created in the late 1970's in order to reinvent the city of cleveland. it went, "new york may be the big apple, but cleveland's a plum!".
the marketing campaign failed, miserably. surprised? the campaign itself now only lives on through retro bumper stickers and tshirts. oh yeah, and my blog!
so since i was lucky enough to win not one, but two pay-it-forward blogger contests i need to make sure this contest makes one hell of a splash.
awhile ago trish ryan left me a comment pondering what she thought her city's fruit would be. interesting idea i thought, i'll go ahead and save that one for later.
now is later.
so have you figured out the contest yet?
this is my version of the pay-it-forward contest (because you get an awesome prize), but with a twist.
leave a comment stating what you think your city's fruit/vegetable/food/ice cream/etc, should be and why. if you live in cleveland already feel free to get creative.
i will choose two winners picked purely from what i think the best answers are and one winner that will be randomly drawn. also, if you aren't feeling that creative just leave a comment and you'll be entered into the random drawing.
the part that i like best about this contest is that you get to CHOOSE YOUR OWN PRIZE!!! and it's an awesome prize if i do say so myself...
the three winners will get their choice of the following two tshirts, "cleveland - you've gotta be tough" or "cleveland's a plum". the cool thing about these shirts is that the images are iron on decals so you will be able to choose the color, theme and size of your shirt!
did i sell you on entering yet?
option one: modeled by my lovely sissy! ironically she is wearing this shirt while in NYC. the shirt she is wearing actually gave me the idea for this blog oh so many moons ago.
work it sissy, way to show of the merchandise
option two: modeled by my roommate bird, she is SO tough. totally.
