New tag line for shirts and such?

Post by Beowolf » Tue Sep 16, 2014 11:47 pm

After watching both the wonderfully done ZS history and Kyle's presentation and
partaking in some ZS identity talk, I was hoping the powers that be might consider a new catch phrase on the ZS shirts and whatnot.

Instead of "We make dead things deader"--which tells nothing of our mission--how about changing it to, "If you're prepared for zombies, you're prepared for anything"? I think this really captures the original essence of ZS and has the potential to inform outsiders of what we do and what we're really about.

I'm pretty sure someone brought this up in one of the discussion threads, but I wanted to get it here in hopes of making it happen. I just think it's PERFECT.

Thoughts?

I like it.

Perhaps we have two so to speak.

One for those in the group and one to explain who we are to the outside world.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

I have never found the "we make dead things deader" to be of any help with the public

The ops line, we are always quoting to people at events and is a much better received quote

Not bad but I think I prefer the ops

While I agree with our theme that if we are ready for a zombie apocalypse, we are ready for anything ; I think we should just shorten it to "Zombie Squad, prepared for anything."

Maybe there could be multiple variations, not just the old and one new, but multiple new? This might be costly for the printing, but...I love choices. :)

I should note, too, that I believe Kyle said that line that I suggested above in his ZS history talk. Credit where credit is due.

These are awful, but I'm in a sassy mood.... so don't judge....

Zombie Squad: Because "Alien Squad" is too far-fetched

Zombie Squad: Because we hate our dayjobs

Zombie Squad: Because stiffs (or corpses) need love too

Zombie Squad: Listen, it's a lot cooler than you think (what I say to my girlfriend when I check for updates in bed... if you know what I mean)

Zombie Squad: Because Survivalist Boards .com sounds like a lumber company

Zombie Squad: We kill the shit out of charitable events

Zombie Squad: Because my mom taught me to bring an extra set of undies

Zombie Squad: Preppin' ain't, preppin' ain't easy, man

Zombie Squad: No, I don't watch "The Walking Dead" (but I do)

Zombie Squad: We aim for the face (yeah, dirty....)

Zombie Squad: We do it in the woods (yeah, dirtier....)

Zombie Squad: Always be prepared, carry protection (yep, gettin' worse....)

Zombie Squad: Because my In-Laws are already soul-less life suckers

On a serious note, I think a cool shirt would be something like an old style varsity sports shirt.

"Zombie Squad
Back to Back to Back
Apocalypse Champs"

Or something fun on the front like that.

Then the back can have the catch phrase

How about:

Having fun preparing for the worst.
Learning to rely on yourself.
Old habits die hard, old zombies die harder.

It seems I'm necroing my own threads today...

Wondering if this might be a possibility for the powers that be? I'd even chip in an extra buck or two for a 'custom' catchphrase on a shirt or other accoutrement.
