A Little Levity

While we're still mourning the loss of our uncle Rich, it might be time to start laughing a little, too. To that end, there were some entries in the latest WaPo's "Style Invitational" that were chuckle-worthy. The contest was to provide mottoes or tourism slogans for countries around the world. Here are some of the best:

China: Come Visit Your Money (Ira Allen, Bethesda)

Denmark: Oh, So Nothing's Rotten in YOUR Country? (Brendan Beary)

Germany: Genocide Free Since 1945! (Cy Gardner, Arlington)

Greenland: Site of the 2060 Summer Olympics (J. Larry Schott, Gainesville, FL; Elwood Fitzner, Valley City, ND)

India: For More Information, Press 1 (Matthew Morris, Rockville)

Iran: World's Largest Non-American Theocracy (Ira Allen)

Mexico: A Little Less Crowded Every Day (Dan Milam, Paducah, KY)

We're sure Uncle Rich's shoulder-rolling laugh can be heard somewhere in the distance...

"Genocide Free Since 1945" - an exact quote from the Onion Atlas. That's called plagiarism, Cy Gardner!!
