Subject: Motivational Posters

Written By: Mushroom on 07/31/09 at 5:52 am

Now this is something that has been around for quite a while.  Posters that have some kind of image, and are supposed to inspire us to be better individuals.

And in recent years, a big thing on the internet has been "Demotivational Posters".  These are posters that make fun of the original ones.  They have a picture, but with a caption to either "Demotivate" an individual, or to make fun of something.

In the last few weeks, I have started to rotate several of these as my desktop at work.  Most of them are of a military nature, and have been the source of endless amusement to everybody that passes by my desk.  I thought I would share some in here, including one I made myself.

Does anybody else in here have one or more to share?

Pretty good demotivational posters, Mushroom. That one you made is too funny.

I make a few every now and then. The one that follows was for a phone forum:

On a par with the original 90s-era "Apathy: If we don't take care of the customer, maybe he'll stop bugging us" demotivational poster available from the geniuses at Despair.com.

Awesome!  I just grabbed that one.

Sadly, I have been unable to see any of the others.  They are probably hosted on sites that are blocked from my internet.

I made a new one today, it is something that helps me pass the time.  And anybody can do them here:

The picture is one I took outside of our local PX.  Since we are in Qatar, we have to use the local signs.

It may not be "Politically Correct", but I like it.  8)

The creator of your demotivator ("Charlie Sheen: Eaten More Pussy Than Cervical Cancer") has a point that I cannot concede.  Right, wrong, he's the guy with the extra million bucks to spend on two chicks at once.

Actually this is more of a demotivational poster than motivational.
