Fun with Passive Voice

Yesterday in my Professional Communication class, my professor was talking about not using passive voice.  He took some famous quotes and ad slogans and made them passive.  I want to share some of the better ones:

"I will be given liberty or I will be given death by you"
-Give me liberty or give me death!

"It must be done by you!"
-Just do it

"You are loved by me, man!"
-I love you man

"No, should be said by you to drugs!"
-Say no to drugs.

"It is being loved by me"
-I'm lovin' it.

and for my favorite...

"Sexual relations with that woman were not had by me."
-I did not have sexual relations with that woman.
