Your campaign slogan involves the last text you sent

They're probably better than real campaign slogans.

With the midterm elections coming up, it’s hard not to think about what your own campaign slogan would be if you decided to enter the hellscape of politics. Luckily, screenwriter Eden Dranger made it easy to come up with the perfect slogan.

“Your campaign slogan is your last name + ‘:’ + the last text you sent,” she tweeted yesterday.

The tweet quickly went viral with people tweeting what their slogans would be and the responses didn’t disappoint.

Some of them were a little too on the nose. “My campaign slogan would be ‘We voted, have you?'” one person tweeted. “On brand. Not sure I could make that up if I tried.”

Another said, “it could be worse I suppose,” which also felt a little too real.

Others made less sense, but could totally work if you think about it. “Damn dude. You doing okay?” said one tweet.

A few were definitely something we could get behind. “OK let’s do this breakfast thing,” one tweet said.

“We need more BBQ sauce,” another person tweeted.

And other’s were just hilarious. “I’m gonna shit in your lunch,” a too-honest tweet said.

After seeing all of the different responses, this honestly doesn’t seem like a bad way to come up with a slogan. Crazier things have happened.
