Free swag!

Smurf Day t-shirt by Junk FoodSo, we launched the new and improved blog earlier this year, and so far, we’re thrilled with the outcome. I’ve enjoyed writing posts, reading what my colleagues are up to, but more than anything, reading some of the thoughtful, funny, goofy, encouraging, nonsensical comments you have left. Thank you! …but I’m sure you sense something is afoot here…

There is and it’s simple. We’re making IMA Blog T-shirts and we want to hear from you. Specifically, we want you to sloganize, jinglelize, poeticize, jargonize, catch phrase our t-shirts. Need an example? How about – “I read the IMA Blog and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.”


What’s in it for the winner? Well – a few t-shirts for sure, lot’s of other swag and the opportunity to guest blog for the IMA (think of the fun!). We might even dig up some more goodies for you.

So put on your thinking t-shirts and leave your suggestions as comments (don’t forget to leave your e-mail in the comment field). We’ll post our favorite (5) slogans in a poll on the blog…then let you decide the winner!

Come on! This is better than doing work.

**new note – we’re accepting your submissions until April 15!

    Richard Says:

    Thanks, Spellcheck, for pointing out my spelling deficiencies. Really, though, I don’t need any more reminders that I’m nothing without a Word’s spellchecking device.

    I think I’m going to take some part of the weekend to consider NoName!’s suggestions of living the “The Inch Blog.”

    I’m not really sure where this is going, but I have sneaky suspicion it’s going to end with me having a little chat with the IMA HR department.

    Note to self: stay away from such conversations in the future; this one is going no where fast.

    On a side note, in high school I saw Guns-n-Roses open for Aerosmith at Market Square Arena.

    Any guesses as to what Aerosmith song this is:
