Or it’s in your mind, I don’t know. It looks fine from here. Great poster. 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: http://www.despair.com/wishes.html This has always been my favorite: http://www.despair.com/mis24x30prin.html 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. Comments are closed.
