"The advertising industry is one of our most basic forms
of communication and, allegedly, of information. Yet,
obviously, much of this ostensible information is not
purveyed to inform but to manipulate and to achieve a
result - to make somebody think he needs something
that very possibly he doesn't need, or to make him think
one version of something is better than another version
when the ground for such a belief really doesn't exist."
- Marvin E. Frankel
I want to apologize for my week hiatus from "Wordplay". I had a brain freeze. I do have a few week's worth of fresh ideas for you, so keep coming back and thanks for playing! Also, I have decided to post "Wordplay" Saturday mornings as it is an easier and slower morning for me. Wednesday mornings have become too full of activity. So visit my journal Saturday mornings for "Wordplay" and I will try to be very consistent! I wanted to thank Paul for advertising "Wordplay" in his last posting of CarnivAOL. Thanks, Paul! If you want to know how to have one of your entries posted in CarnivAOL pay him a visit! Submissions are due by midnight Sunday for his Tuesday postings!
The quote at the top of the page will make more sense when I introduce today's "Wordplay". It has to do with advertising and wording in advertising. Choosing the right words in advertising is so important. There are many slogans and ditties that have stayed in our brain over the years because they have been ingenious - the wording that is. The words stick in your head forever. For today's "Wordplay" I would like you to take this 10 question quiz. How many did you get correct? Which ones did you have a hard time with? Did you enjoy taking the quiz? For those of you living in the U.K. and out of the States, was it harder for you? What do you think about advertising? I only missed one. I had to guess at three of them and got two out of the three that I guessed. Seven were easy for me. One answer I was very surprised with. So, go take the quiz and see what you get and tell me your results and enjoy!!
I hope everyone is having a very nice weekend! I am so excited because my son, Matt, is coming for a ten-day visit on Monday!! Yay!! Have a nice day all! xox
