I laugh at Despair

No, no – I’m not completely heartless.  I don’t laugh at people who are experiencing despair (I might laugh WITH them though).  I laugh at the company and the writers who work for www.despair.com .  Their company slogan is:  "We’re not happy ’till you’re not happy."  They do these crazy lithographs that smack of the popular "Motivators" posters.  Here’s their "Despair" demotivator:


There are about 100 other lithographs – all laugh-out-loud funny.  Here’s a fairly current one, for which they’ve gotten a lot of flack:



And in response to an irate citizen who reamed them for their complete insensitivity in the government demotivator, they created this one:

If you have a hard-to-shop-for cynic on your Christmas list, this is a great place to find a gift (I get no kick-backs from this endorsement – it’s purely for your convenience and enjoyment).


Here’s an example of another one of their recent releases. You can get this on a T-shirt.  I own the Pessimist’s Mug (the non-executive one).  This is a take-off from that mug  (I think these people consume truck-loads of caffeine and work between the hours of 1am and 4am)


If you go over and browse their site, be sure to check out their video podcasts.  You might get a chuckle from one or two of them too.

    I love this! I can’t make up my mind which one I am. I guess it depends on my mood, huh?

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. Hope you come back.

    I will be back to visit you often.

    The farm life is for me!

    I was just thinking about who I am this week. Am I am optimist or a pessimist? I decided I’m an optimist about life, but a pessimist about people. It can’t be helped.

    I love things like this, because above all, I’m cynical!

    hey farm chick….I was so inspired by your daily ramblings that I decided to start some ramblings of my own…..hence my “journey through motherhood” I’ve started another blog… you know since I can barely keep up with posting on my first blog, but all kidding aside….I love your accounts of life on the farm and I thought…hmmm it’s probably very cathartic (don’t know if I spelled that right???) to write about day to day happenings! So here is my attempt….check it out sometime -amomsjourney.wordpress.com

    I enjoyed these. They are a lot of fun. The government one is the best! (I will not ask to borrow your ‘chute!)

    I saw one the other day that was patterend after these posters. It had a picture of the Duggar family (17 kids and one on the way) and it said “Vagina: It’s not a clown car”.

    RFC: Really neat posters because they are so funny. That government one may have hit a little close to home.
