All lines are actual blog taglines, found by surfing WordPress.com blogs. The refrain is the default tagline, which a surprising number of bloggers elect to keep.

  2. Well, but remember, nothing says you have to have a tagline. Plenty of WP.com bloggers elect not to (and some themes don’t display them).

    I am really digging “Much study is a wariness of the flash,” though.

  3. Yeah, like my wife, the “helpmeet.” (Or, God forbid, “helpmeat.”)

    (Back to “much study”: I checked out his blog, and I couldn’t tell if he mangles it on purpose. My guess is that he does.)

  4. Interesting… it’s be even more cool if you put in links to the “donor” blogs?

  5. Peter – He’s a math guy, so I’m guessing it’s on purpose, and also intentionally obscure.

    David – I thought about that, but I didn’t want the source bloggers to see the incoming links and decide I was making fun of them. It should be easy enough to find all but the generic ones by googling, as Peter did.

  6. I opted for ‘much study…’ as being the most obscure and gnomic, do you think it might be an anagram?
    Otherwise it would have to be ‘a thing about other things’ which makes the least claim for itself…

  7. Well done, dave. A fine collection. I don’t know why but these taglines make me imagine a doll house filled with miniature objects.

  8. Thanks for the comments.

    I really should’ve taken the time to find more gnomic/interesting taglines, but that would be a different kind of post, I guess. it was fun to mix the pedestrian with the bizarre.

    I like the doll house image, robin!
