“Don’t Mess Makin’ a Mess, Bigger-Meatier-Tastier and Monkey is a Mask”

The slogan “Don’t mess with Texas” came from an anti-littering ad campaign in the ’80s.

Subway’s B.M.T. sandwich was originally named after the Brooklyn Manhattan Transit subway lines.  Now it stands for “Bigger, Meatier, Tastier.”

The original plan for “Gremlins” was to use monkeys wearing masks . . . but when a test monkey freaked out, the producers realized they’d have to use puppets.
