There are certain slogans that become ingrained in the cultural consciousness. "Just Do It," "Tell it to the Marines" and "Meth, Not Even Once" all come to mind.

Such a catchphrase is the Maxwell House motto "Good to the last Drop" - a quote attributed to Theodore Roosevelt in 1907. Of course, while familiarity with a brand slogan is exactly what marketers want from the general populace, their catchy quality often takes one's mind in other directions, and the phrase finds equal aptitude in other contexts. Hence, another listy post - DISCLAIMER - I'm using "to" in the sense of "till". Also this list must be read with a resounding repeat of the slogan after each item.

GOOD (UP)TO THE LAST DROP -

1. MALFUNCTIONING PARACHUTES -

2. CHILDREN SHARING A BAG OF GELATIN SUGAR-CANDIES -

3. MELTING GLACIERS -

4. SPLASH MOUNTAIN -

5. INEBRIATED WOMEN DRINKING LEMON MARTINIS -

6. MIXED-UP EYE MEDICATION -

7. DRUG DEALS GONE SOUR -

8. HACKY-SACK RALLIES -

9. FIRE DRILLS IN LAVA FIELDS -

10. THE ECONOMY -


"I frequently enjoy Maxwell House with multiple young ladies, making sure they have a good time by spreading my legs wide to show off my roasted beans."

This actually made me Laugh Out Loud! (I refuse to write the shortened version of this because it is over used in inappropriate ways.) Wish I had my own clever idea to add. I'll leave that to you though.
