I suppose we are all familiar with those "motivational" posters -- "Inspiration", "Teamwork", "Dedication", etc. -- often advertised in "Skymall" and displayed in dentists' and deans' offices. I confess: I hate them. So, I really appreciated this web site, featuring a whole line of "Demotivators" products, including, for example: "Adversity: That which does not kill me postpones the inevitable"; "Beauty: If you're attractive enough on the outside, people will forgive you for being irritating to the core"; "Consulting: If you're not part of the solution, there's good money to be made in prolonging the problem."
These "Demotivators" owe a lot, of course, to Jack Handey's "Deep Thoughts" (e.g., "when I die, I would like to go peacefully, in my sleep, like my Grandfather did. Not screaming and yelling like the passenger in his car.").
