    I modified the slogan once to fit a manufacturing company I worked for. Just redo it

    The woman who came up with that swoosh logo design was an employee who got a few bucks for it. And no royalties.

    Actually Gary Gilmore’s last words were, “Let’s do it”.

    Yeah, we get that – the sixth frame says so…

    Dude requested the firing squad instead of the other ways. Somebody snuck him in a shot of whiskey and then he said “Let’s do it!” Say what you want about him, he took his punishment like a man…..

    Wasn’t that when the passengers tried to save Flight 93 over PA on 9/11?

    Urban legend. “Just do it” was actually an often-repeated catchphrase of the Zen roshi of the Portland Zen Center.

    I can find NO reference that says anything other than Gilmore’s last words were “Let’s do it”. An extremely rare mistake on Mr. Mallett’s part.

    Sorry, but the swoosh logo is based on the checkmark. Checkmarks are very widely used in logos, so it wasn’t created in a vacuum.

    There was an article about this in the New York Times a week ago: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/20/business/media/20adco.html

    The phrase uttered by Todd Beamer on Flight 93 was “Let’s roll”.

    We can recall Gilmore’s name…but what about the names of his victims?
    I propose that the media “name” a murder by using “the killer of”. In Gilmore’s case, “the killer of Max Jensen and Benny Bushnell”, Glimore’s two victims.

    Frazz is not correct about the origination of the term. It goes back to Nancy Reagan and her comments about avoiding drugs. Ask how children could avoid getting involved in drugs, she said, “Just do it.” It became the slogan for the DARE program before Nike picked it up.
