Don’t be scared, be…huh?

My brother pointed out tonight that the motto Metro is promoting (“Don’t be scared, be prepared”) doesn’t do much to alleviate people’s fears. Be prepared…how? We also discussed the fact that the motto was probably thought up by a bunch of men in suits who took three hours to come up with it and then went out for martinis.

So how can we improve the slogan? Haiku? A limerick? Couplets? Submit your Metro poetry in the comments and maybe we can convince the Metro officials to spice up their motto.
