That about sums it up.
Oh, and look, I made another one:
(You can make your own “motivational poster” here.)
The jpg file appears to be corrupt. Or it’s in your mind, I don’t know.
It looks fine from here.
It’s important not to play with that toy after a stressful week at work: This one I made a while back and was clearly not in the best mood at the time.
I blatantly ripped off a cynical poster saying for my signature line:
When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it’s really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life.
Then you’re pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it’s death by meteor.
Whoever originally wrote that – I thank you. It has given me much pleasure and I have sold it to no one.
That’s a Despair, Inc. demotivational poster:
This has always been my favorite:
LOL! Oh man, John, you crack me up.
Hope to see you at WisCon.
I think you could make some decent money selling copies of “Respect”. I know some people that would love one. Especially, since I don’t want to get beaten. Well, yeah, I do, but not with a baseball bat. :)
Had to google “jonathan swift children”. Creepy.
But a nice poster!
The more I read about your lovely wife the clearer it becomes that she is the woman I wish I’d grown up to be. Since that didn’t work out I wish I could make this poster into greeting cards and send them out for the holidays.
