Notable Mentions

Stop killing wheat; eat more meat.

A spoon full of sugar makes your life expectancy go down.

If eating fat makes you fat, then eating brains will make me the smartest bastard ever!

Friends don’t let friends eat junk food. Go Primal!

Real Women eat meat!

I love sedentary, grain-eating people. They’re so much easier to hunt.

Walk a mile in Grok’s shoes….barefoot

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Sweet, I made the list!

  2. Boy, there are some tough choices there! I’d wear most of those on a t-shirt…

  3. These are awesome. Nice job you guys..

  4. Not to be a party pooper, but regarding the #2 contender…

    Isn’t “Think Outside the Bun” Taco Bell’s slogan? I wouldn’t want PB’s reputation tarnished by an association with a distinctly non-primal fast food chain. Just my $.02.

    • Caroline,

      Don’t worry. These slogans are just for fun. I don’t imagine they’ll be used for anything apart from our enjoyment and for this contest.

    • just thought it would be Pun-ny :)

      or in this case, a play on a slogan rather than a play on words

  7. I would love to see that Twinkies quote on a Grok shirt.

  8. Thanks to everybody who voted for my quip. I’ve been on a bit of a losing streak lately (and not the good kind), so it’s nice to be appreciated. Y’all made my week!
