Feisty Friday!

If you know me, you know that my train of thought can jump tracks, or change tracks to a tangential idea at the drop of a hat. Chris, over at Slap & Tickle, posted about new Valentine treats from a company that I've loved for years called Despair, Inc. They take the fun pessimistic view of anything that comes along. They have a line of "De-Motivation" posters in response to those annoying motivational posters that came out a decade or so ago.

It made me remember the fun I had when I first discovered Despair, Inc. And also made me remember how pissed off some of the folks were that actually loved those motivational posters. Since I was at a loss for what to post today, but knew I needed to since my luge accident on Wednesday had me home bound yesterday, I thought I'd just toss up something from Despair.

So feeling feisty as I do (nothing like being bedridden for a day to make you feisty when you can actually move again) I thought I'd take another stab at those people with the motivational posters.... I mean really.....

How about..."If you need a motivational poster to get motivated, you should have already been fired"?

I love Despair, Inc. I love the banner they claim is in their warehouse: "We can't spell FAILURE without U R A..."

My other favorite is the picture of a bag of small fries and the caption "Potential: Not everyone gets to be an astronaut when they grow up." Too funny... yet, sadly true.
