(De)Motivation

A few weekends ago I went on a weekend at a Scout site in Derbyshire. On one wall of the main room of the building were a series of motivational posters. You know the sort, a striking photograph on a black back ground, with a single word underneath followed by an aphorism. Unfortunately many of us (especially Andy N) felt some of these were just plain weird.

For the cynical among you may I introduce Despair.com, a website dedicated to selling spoofs of the exact same type of motivational images. The sad thing about Despair’s posters are that they are a lot better that the motivational posters that inspired them. They’re certainly a lot funnier, anyway.
