I Just read on the BBC news web site that Mars are cutting 700 jobs from UK workforce to move them abroad. New slogan time.

A MARS A DAY KEEPS FOREIGN WORKERS IN PAY!

: : : concerning this phrase.. it was actually invented by Murray Walker the famous formula 1 commentator when he worked in advertising, pretty sweet eh

: : I think someone should write a book about all the slogans, commercials, etc., and their origins.

: Murray Walker DIDN'T write the slogan, he was the account manager on the Mars account at the time, but not the creative. The matter is dealt with in his autobiography.
