    When you endorse a product, the company pays YOU.

    Express your uniqueness. Let your pants hang halfway down your backside. It’s all the rage. Everyone cool is doing it, so you’ll be on the cutting edge.

    I express my individuality in nonamed products! It’s a special way of expression!

    I try to destroy brands by endorsing them. I single-handedly ruined DKNY’s street cred by wearing a logo sweatshirt. Next on my hit list is Tommy Hilfiger. I think I shall destroy by sunglasses.

    Absolutely. Anyone with genuine concern for animals can’t but despise PETA.

    I have a cousin who was so hooked up on the labels on the stuff she bought that I often thought she ought to remove them from inside the collar and stitch them on the chest so everyone would know which company made her shirt. She got so mad when I told her that.

    I’m of the age where anything I touch is considered uncool by the (much) younger set. Behold, I am the destroyer of brands.

    I think it was a C&H comic…where the kid wondered where he came from, Hobbes looked at the label on his tee shirt and said, “China”. Who’s paying who, really?

    I refuse to pay more than 25 bucks for a pair of jeans or 30 for a pair of shoes. (In the case of the shoes, I should start making an exception. I plan to get into jogging.)

    I’ll go you one better – would you spend 20 or 30 THOUSAND to advertise a company? No? Go look at that dealer logo on the back of your new car. “Why sure, I would be happy to advertise your dealership! Just $289 a month for 60 months!” What a deal.

    I’m kinda one of those people who likes to wear anything nice-looking and comfortable. I tend to be a bit picky on what I like whether it is generic or high class labeled.

    Here’s one from before Charlie Brown was Snoopy’s owner. Snoopy sometimes lived at Shermy’s house in the earliest strips.Click here: Peanuts (April 11, 1951)

    It wasn’t fiction when Watterson/Calvin said it either – it was seriously stated long, long before 1999, I think! :)

    Even if endorsing products expresses individuality, it encourages plurality (in this case encouraging “everybody” to buy the same product!Night-Gaunt49 beat me to the punch and said it well in other words.

    Ah, this strip. It literally influenced the way I dress for the better part of my life.And still, if anybody asks if I’d wear a shirt with a big company logo on it, I’ll give ’em the same reasoning here.

    Anyone notice in the old newsreels, how fast the brand name TITANIC was removed from lifeboats, etc? Even to the point of scraping the name off every frame of the films?

    Disney is the brand I’d least like to wear…Yet parents dress their kids in it like crazy.

    One of the stated goals of PETA (as articulated by co-founder and president Ingrid Newkirk is to abolish pet ownership. She said that animals should only be enjoyed in their natural surroundings, not in homes.

    She’ll take my cats away from me when she pries them from my cold, dead hands!

    (This comment brought to you by Ronco! Makers of soap on a rope…Ronco!) Well, it seems to me we should just “do it” (insert Nike logo), and wear what makes us feel attractive (insert “Axe” sound effects). But do it at slashed prices (Walmart smiley face flipping by); just be careful to break all (Tabu’s being whispered in smell-a-round). I’m Vonne Anton, and I had nothing to do with this message (paid for by the National American Aquatic Chlorine Panel…you do the alphabet soup)! Ah-choo…’scuse me, got a code in mah node…(24-hr Sudafed! For all your crystal meth needs!…good for sneezing, too!)

    “Let them starve. That is normal too.”It might be normal if evolution were true, but in reality, God didn’t create it that way. Originally, there was a balance of nature until the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden.

    Evolution is a scientific theory, God is a philosophical one. You can’t compare the two, they neither support nor negate each other either: although taking everything the bible says so literally is not recommended. Even by the Pope.
