It's still Gaston Memorial no matter how epic the slogan is. That's one step beyond Piedmont in Rock Hill.... Forward or back step questionable.

They look like nice people.

Clicked the link thinking, "I'll see about that..."

Closed the page thinking, "Yeah. That's not bad at all."

DanZero: Way to troll death with that new slogan

A far better trolling would've been if they'd gotten the OK to use the likeness of Keith Richards or Abe Vigoda along with the new slogan.

That's saying a lot considering how shiatty Piedmont is.

Well, I cheated death there three years ago, so I'm pretty cool with the slogan.

My aunt didn't.  Maybe if they were wearing the shirts and it was under the new spiffy name she would've made it.  Maybe we can sue them for wrongful practice for not being cool back then?

The medical industry is cheating everyone else.  Why not death?

Death is not going to like this.
2013-04-04 03:57:58 PM  
I would have gone with "Kick Death in the Balls"
2013-04-04 03:59:03 PM  
Cheat death!...for a while...hopefully...look everyone dies some time.

/doesn't have quite the same ring.
//whoops, also watch out for our locally grown superbugs!

Sort of off-topic but I love that there is a Gastonia in Gaston County, because that's my last name. Presumably it is where some of my ancestors lived until that whole American Revolution thing when the members of the family who were Loyalists eventually left and went to Canada.

I want one of those t-shirts to go along with my "F*ck Cancer, if I have one more MRI I'll stick to the refrigerator door" shirt.

I wonder how many people die there each year.. False advertising claim?

Hey, I didn't even eat the mousse!

"And what is the one thing we say to the God Death?"

"Not today."

Death has all the time in the world.

Dance for him.

When Death comes for a soul, he leaves with a soul. Whether or not it was the one on his list... Please think before you try to cheat Death as he may take someone close to you instead.
//got nothin, really
2013-04-04 06:33:44 PM  
"Valar morghulis" was taken, I assume.
2013-04-04 11:55:02 PM  
Since it's in Gastonia the slogan should be 'Cheap Meth'.

Subby's local hospital has precedents that extend far back into history.

2013-04-05 02:02:24 AM  
hmmm.... can't see a lawsuit. No. No chance of anyone not cheating death if they have restaurant menu items that 'help you cheat death'

Anyone who uses the Gaston County hospital would be lucky to cheat death.

I'd rather die on the way to Charlotte than to have to go to Gaston.

Williams said he has heard from CaroMont employees who feel the language cheapens their mission, as well as pastors who find the message blasphemous. Tom Keigher, one of several Gaston County commissioners who have condemned the name change, took issue with both the CaroMont Regional name and the cheat death catchphrase. It was like they sat around and got hold of the drugs or something and just came up with the worst possible wording," he said. He took issue with CaroMont's decision to stop using "memorial" in the hospital name. "Do we need to start thinking of new names for the Lincoln Memorial or the Jefferson Memorial?" he asked.

CaroMont's business will be booming with all those sticks up people's asses to remove.
