Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

it pays to advertise

10 April 2014



gimme a break,

it’s the real thing,

beayty outside, beast inside,

it’s finger lickin’ good!

Don’t be evil,

between love and madness lies obsession.

Pleasure is the path to joy;

let your fingers do the walking.


Impossible is nothing;

share moments. Share life.

Quality never goes out of style.

Think big.

Outwit. Outplay. Outlast.


I’m lovin’ it,

pleasing people the world over.

Have it your way,

I am what I am –

American by birth. Rebel by choice.

If you want to impress someone, put him on your Black List,

see what we mean.


Think small —

a mind is a terrible thing to waste

when there is no tomorrow.

Save money, live better,

there is no substitute,

the greatest tragedy is indifference!


Does she … or doesn’t she

just do it,

live in your world, play in ours,

the happiest place on Earth?


Reach out and touch someone,

because you’re worth it.

Think different,

eat fresh,

crystal clean and no caffeine,

good to the last drop,

melts in your mouth, not in your hands,

just for the taste of it.


Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t,

when you care enough to send the very best

it keeps going and going and going …

Where’s the beef?

It’s in there,

it’s everywhere you want to be.


A diamond is forever!

Nothing runs like a Deere.
