Venerable frozen-pizza brand DiGiorno apparently felt like it was time to reheat their decades-old ad copy, "It's not delivery, it's DiGiorno!" How else to explain its surreptitious late-night tweet beckoning social media users to, well, "Give us a new slogan." See for yourself....

Naturally, Twitter obliged. But the results were, by and large, less saucy than sweet. Take @vodkanopants, a precise wordsmith if there ever was one. They wrote, "Self rising. Just like you."

Or @daysigned's earnest play on the brand's rolling capitalization, saying, "DiGiorno, cause you DiServe a night off."

Still, there were more than a few servings of cheese among the suggestions. Like @yourenotbetty's reference to a popular, adolescent association with cheese: "Go ahead: cut the cheese. DiGiorno."

Or @alexpalomob's earnest stab at a pizza pun, writing, "You DiGiorno you want some."

Though our personal favorite is @artic_mermaid's droll, strikingly accurate summation. "DiGiorno, halfway between papa johns and a genuine pizza restaurant."
