And Now For Something Completely Different...

"You have no fortune."  
I didn't need a cookie to tell me that.  
~ Carrie Bradshaw (Sex in the City)

You know that game where you "spice up" your fortune from a Chinese fortune cookie by adding the tag line "...in bed." to the end?  

One day at a work lunch, I got the fortune, "You are about to experience something exciting and wonderful!" and as soon as I was back in the office, I emailed my fortune to my husband.  

Within minutes I heard back from him:  "What a coincidence!  I ate Chinese for lunch too.  My fortune read, 'You are about to undertake a dangerous mission.' "  

How I love that man!  ;)

Anyways, it recently occurred to me that the tag line "...in bed." doesn't just spice up fortune-cookie fortunes - it also adds a bit of pizzazz to a lot of popular advertising slogans...  

Here are just a few of the ones that I have thought of:  


And now, for my favorite one...

What ones can you think of?  

PS - and now you know what I do at midnight, when I'm supposed to be finishing a report for work, but I'm totally brain dead...  ;)


  1. Thanks for the chuckle. I needed it today, having finally reconciled to the fact that I need both knees replaced. Very cute. I love your blog header. I have a shuttle but not the spool inside. It's been in my Etsy shop forever.

    1. Hi Nancy, I'm so glad you enjoyed these - I had a lot of fun putting them together!
      I'm sorry to hear about the knee replacements - that does not sound fun at all. I hope it goes as smoothly as possible and you are up and moving again soon!
      All the best, Gwen
      PS - I'm off to check out the shuttle in your Etsy shop... ;)

  2. Haha! Had a good laugh at these. I dont think I can stop myself from adding "in bed" to all the advertisement slogans now. :D

    1. Hi Gunjan - I'm so glad you thought they were funny! :)
      Thank you for letting me know. :)
      Happy New Year! :)
