De-motivators (or Motivators?) for guys...

Postby LordArt » Thu Jul 02, 2009 12:27 pm

I found the below too amusing not to share. I wouldn't exactly call it work safe, it's in that grey zone depending...

The last one is a neat way of saying it.

It certainly is....

So would you call the collection demotivators or motivators in general?

Meme-wankery? :P It's a mixed bag, I'd say general motivators. Not really in tune with either original concept, I think.

Whoa! They sure kick the crap out of the original "motivational" posters..
When I first saw those I was like, wtf? if I buy an awesome poster with a peaceful tropical sunset, I don't think I need the definition of tranquility as a subcaption..

But I have to tip my hat to these ones.
Some of them are pointless but hilarious. The ones we can assign some merit to are mostly things that had to be said. Perceptions all of us have made but none had the guts to say..
I think it was a matter of time before somebody found a way to criticise the internet culture and modern society at large, but in a snappy way which makes it more than acceptable. I guess this is it :)

We live in an analog and subjective society. One of the best ways to draw the line is with humor. Sometimes you need to know where to draw the line, which is harder on the internet because we're essentially the first generation to use it in such a way. We were bound, as a society, to go overboard with it before we could strike any kind of balance.

I'd have to say motivators...or at least eye-openers of how people and life can get too straight edge, too messed up, or too pretentious at times..

Definitely motivators... If they demotivated me about anything, it would be getting my picture taken or having a teenage daughter to keep out of trouble..

Anyway, to conclude,
Boobs - what more motivation do you need? :werd:
It's always good to go the extra mile.
Especially if what you want is, like..a mile away...
