Burma Shave Signs for Marriott Rewards

Alumni Steward Platinum 8 Reviews
Currently Being Moderated

Ok punsters, someone mentioned Burma Shave signs that dotted the rural two-laners in the past.


Got me thinking maybe we could have a Marriott Burma Shave sign contest.  Normally there were four short lines, one on each sign, leading to the finale, with the Burma Shave tag. 

 

As in


Sign one- A guy who drives...

Sign two- his car wide open...

Sign three- is not thinkin'...

Sign Four- he's just hopin'.


Tag line- Burma Shave


With all the intellectual power out there perhaps we can have a little holiday fun and make up a four sign ditty or  two about Marriott or Marriott Rewards.  First prize will be an instant elevation to Rhodium Elite Status (as soon as it is created, which might not be for a couple light years), and all the perks attendant thereto.


No nasty ones please. Keep those to yourself.

    I'm not a poet, but here goes an ode to my fellow Insiders…...

     

    MRI - a great forum.

    The good Lord knows you can't ignore 'em.

    Always willing to speak their mind,

    A better bunch would be hard to find

      sledchick,

       

      Can I buy you a "Green Mountain" breakfast?

       

      Harrington's "Cob Smoked Bacon" is a must!

       

      We will invite all MRI in the area!

       

      This does not rhyme?

              anadyr,

               

              You break me up!

               

              Don't tell anyone, but I am staying tonight at the Hilton Rome Airport.  It is so nice, and connected to the airport for an early morning flight back to Atlanta.  Had a wonderful dinner here, and am really laughing over your comments!

               

              Thanks for you humor, and "God Bless" your Mother!

          Nice, anadyr!  I'm sure Vermont can handle all the MRI's in the area as "I trust" there aren't that many.  Did you know that the Peru Fair (held in the fall) still uses the Burma Shave signs to advertise their event?  They cook a pretty mean smoked pig!
