The Perfect Gift Idea

Or at least a great way to waste 20 minutes...

"While most are dreaming of success,
winners wake-up and work hard to
achieve it."
Perhaps you have been living on another planet, or are one of those rare people who hasn't had a flake for a boss... or aren't a flake yourself... but motivational posters like this one have been decorating office break-room walls and the cubicles of countless over-achievers for a couple of decades now. Perhaps you like them (like I do), or perhaps you find them cloying, and kitschy; regardless, you know what they are.

"It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17
to smile, but it doesn't take any to
just sit there with a dumb look on
your face."
Finally, there is, which makes posters of a similar theme, but with a slightly more realistic (and humorous) view of the world. Even if you aren't interested in buying one of these posters, stop buy and check out the collection: There are nearly 100 of these posters with 100 awesomely bleak, jaded, or simply bitchy ways of seeing things. I highly recommend taking a while and reading these: But be careful, if you read one, you'll read them all.
