“Keep College Station Normal”

“Keep College Station Normal” is a gentle borrowing (trademarked in 2004) from the popular slogan “Keep Austin Weird.” Sarcazm Creations has marketed items with the slogan.
The seemingly endless imitation Texas city slogans include “Keep San Antonio Lame,” “Keep Dallas Pretentious,” “Keep Dallas Plastic,” “Keep Dallas Douche,” “Keep Houston Dirty,” “Keep Denton Chido,” “Keep Abilene Boring,” “Keep Georgetown Normal,” “Keep Round Rock Mildly Unusual,” “Keep Wimberley Weirder,” “Keep Lubbock Flat” and “Keep Waco Wacko.”
