20 Cloud Catchphrases

Everyone wants something to be remembered by and what so many people think they can get away with is coming up with a catchphrase or the very least a quotable line. I sat for two weeks thinking of a catchy phrase for cloud computing that is both funny and memorable. So I wasted two weeks of my life because coming up with a catchphrase for anything is harder than it sounds. So, I just repurposed some famous catchphrases for cloud computing and hopefully my legacy will be something else… Enjoy!

1) Dammit man, I am a storage network not a doctor.

-Leonard “Bones” McCoy

-Mr. T

3) Can’t we all just get one cloud network to share?

-Rodney King

4) The USB jump drive made me do it.

-Geraldine Jones

5) I know it when I store it.

-Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart

6) I am smarter than the average CD-R.

19) This cloud was made of lemon grass and shellacked autumn leaves. It’s a cloud thing.

-Martha Stewart

20) Keep Calm and Carry devices with Cloud support technology.

-WWII British Propaganda

To be completely honest I am starting to feel a little more comfortable coming up with a cloud catchphrase. Maybe something like, “It’s the only cloud you want in your life,” or, “It’ll work in the rain.” Hmmm that sounds more of a marketing campaign slogan… You guys got any ideas for your favorite catchphrases? Well then put them in the comment section.

Oh… how about, “Clouding it.”

Never mind.
