Yes! (sigh) I'm much better at explaining things in half an
hour than in ten seconds...

Honestly, I think it's very difficult to find a slogan
that don't need a few sentences of explanation. I think
the slogan needs to make people curious. "What the XXXX
do that mean with that? How is that related to this?"
But I guess it's also good if it associates to something
that is important to the reader.

Maybe the slogan should be more focused on money? That's
something most people are interested in. On the other hand,
people are suspicious of get-rich-past schemes, so it can't
be blunt...

Perhaps a rip-off is better?

  Because you're worth it

  Probably the best snake in the world.

  Connecting Programs

I don't know, according to http://www.smallbusinessnow.com/how-to42.htm
we should probably mention Python in the slogan. What about

     "Python -- the Programmer's Best Friend!"

     "Enjoy the snake"

     "Python is good for you!" (I just noticed Guinness had that though.)

     "Beware of learning Python--you'll regret that you didn't do it sooner..."
