April 24, 2017 – Do you think you’re funny? Do your friends say you’re witty? Have a way with words? Know your crap? We have a job for you!

Officials with the North American Manure Expo – being held August 22 and 23, 2017, in Arlington, Wisc. – are hoping to update the event’s collectible T-shirt, an annual favorite among attendees. So, the hunt is now on for some of the crappiest slogans out there.

Spread the word or provide your own “deposit.” Slogans are being collected through June 15, 2017, and can be submitted at: or by visiting and following the links.


The top 50 slogans received – as decided by expo planners – will be voted on by the public with the top 10 going on the back of the 2017 Manure Expo T-shirt.

Anyone who submits a slogan that makes the T-shirt will receive a free shirt. Your friends will be brown with envy.

The brainchild of Rob Meinen, a senior associate with Penn State University Extension, the “Top 10 Rejected Manure Expo Slogans” T-shirt has become the must-have wardrobe item since 2015. During the first T-shirt slogan contest, more than 750 manure-themed messages were collected from participants all over the world. Planners are hoping for even more “offal” entries this year.

To help inspire, here are some of the top slogans from the 2015 Crappy T-shirt Contest:

• NOBODY sticks their nose in our business
• Immerse yourself
• Where no one stands behind their product
• You provide the creek, we provide the paddle
• Rated M for manure
• You name the species – we’ve got the feces
• Nature called – it wants its nutrients back
• Our grass is always greener
• Be part of the movement
• The incredible spreadable
• Poopapalooza
• The future of what’s left behind

Give into the pressure and dig deep. It’s your “doody.”
