Making catch phrase that lasts

June 3rd, 2011 Posted in bizzare, Personal Thoughts

I think catch phrases are derived from a mixture of popular culture and right timing.  The simple act of utterance at the right moment and in the right setting will set the phrase rolling. For example the phrase – “Shit Happens”  I’m not really sure how it caught on but at least one version of it was depicted in the movie Forrest Gump.  Recently at the KDCA grounds during the harvest festival (kaamatan) celebration, there were funny t shirts sold with the phrase – Buli Bah Kalau Kau.  Loosely translated as “for you, it’s possible”. It would be interesting to know how it originated.
