Copywriters! You are needed now!

It's some high school, can't make it out. Anyway! These dolts need a "Y" word. Here's mine: "Yourself". Previously.

It doesn't apply, but I only recently discovered this word and am using it at every given Y(Opportunity).

Link for others who haven't heard of it:

Y is for "Yogurt."

Remember those old Dannon TV commercials showing people in a Soviet Georgia village where people ate lots of yogurt & lived to be 100 years old?

Nothing says "Legacy" like living to a ripe old age of 100.

Not a copywriter, but, what about 'YONDER?'

As, looking beyond one's humble origins, to aspire to great knowledge, even stardom, just as little Bernie Schwartz once did and then be remembered for "Yonder lies da castle of my fadder da King."

"Yonder Lies The Castle Of My Father" is a line that has been following Tony Curtis around for decades.  Its origin is unclear, even screen legend Bette Davis claiming it as an anecdote in interviews. The line has settled on 'Black Shield of Falworth' as the most likely contender, but it has also been claimed to be part of Curtis's other movies 'Son of Ali Baba' (1952) and 'The Prince Who Was A Thief' (1951).  The latter of these is identified as the source of the line by US critics Harry and Michael Medved in their Golden Turkey Awards book of 1980 where they nominate Curtis as Lifetime Achievement - Worst Actor of All Time (he lost out to Richard Burton).

Hey 1 track mollusk, your suggestion sucks. Building Yonder? Thank God, you are not a copywriter, or your copy will be laced with some archaic or overly pretentious pathetique words and phrases, straight from a senior seminar, or maybe the MLA convention.

Hey 1:20 PM anon, can't decide, if it's you, 6'.4''-250lbs-3% body fat, OR anon/VAGABOND, 'pathetique' being your bon mot and clue.

Whoever, thanks anyway for advancing my status from '1 track moron' to 'mollusk.'

As you know, Cephalopod molluscs such as squid, cuttlefish and octopus are among the most neurologically advanced of all invertebrates and since there are around 85,000 recognized extant species of molluscs... can you be more specific as to where I fit in?

Ponder that by listening to 'Beethoven Sonata no. 8 Pathetique - 2nd Movement in A flat major,' may it soothe your ravaged mind and soul.

I've told you several times I'd love to meet you. Then you will finally believe that I am 6'.4''-250lbs-3% body fat, and report that to your fried, Copyranter. Here's an incentive. I will offer you a free extreme physical makeover.

C'mon Big Guy: It's Super Bowl Sunday; let's all peace out and celebrate fellow large men concussing the crap out of each other.

So it is you, 6'.4''-250lbs-3% body fat... you cock teaser you!

All this time I imagined you as a hyper, roid raging, meat head, BUT if you can throw around words such as archaic, pretentious, pathetique and make reference to an MLA convention, then I need to do a 180 and alter my image of you to this:

Found it! Heritage High School in Menifee California.

Their football team is called "Patriots", and their logo appears to be a pretty direct ripoff of their New England namesake.

Couldn't find a link for the school or its football team, but did find one for their drum line regiment (as a Canadian, I find the idea of a "high school drum line regiment" kind of exotic). They seem pretty good, though.
