If you've been subjected to the "motivational posters" which depict a motivational word such as "teamwork", "determination", "pride", etc, , along with a motivational picture, and a motivational phrase - then this website is for you.

Enjoy.

We have the "motivational" posters here at my company. I don't know where I originally heard about this website, but just yesterday someone sent me a link to an interview with the "get Fuzzy" author, and this website was mentioned, which refreshed my memory. Glad you liked it.

I hate those motivational posters...I always wonder, who are all the people out there getting motivated by a photo of a soaring eagle and a cliche?

I love the parody.

hee-hee - I even right-clicked on one of the pictures to save as my background here at work.

Its the one that says - GET TO WORK You aren't being paid to believe in the power of your dreams.

I chuckle every time I see it.

Anyone else, which is your favorite?

I loved that one too! And the one with a horse kissing another horse's butt :)

I tried to order some cards, but I couldn't get past the order screen :rolleyes:

I loved those posters. I've always hated those motivational posters. I think my favorite was the flattery one with the horse sniffing the butt.

Catland, you won't believe this! I was telling someone about that site only last week, but forgot what it was called and my favourites had been deleted from my internet browser!

I did about 47 gazillion Google searches until I finally found it. Completely forgot about this thread ... :eek:

One of our Dept. Managers received a catalog from the site
this week. She swears she doesn't know how she got on the
mailing list.:D :D She loved the site & circulated it around the
office.Everyone loved it. The posters look exactly like the ones
we have displayed everywhere in the offices, but with very
different texts. LOL. I dared her to substitute these for our
orginals & see just how many people actually READ them anymore.;)

A friend of mine at work, had found this site a couple of years ago and orders the calander and all that. It is great.

Anyway last year we ordered some of the posters and replaced the real ones with these. It took someone 2 wekks to notice that we changed them.:) We were so pleased with our little switch that we could hide who did it.

Yea, we got in a little trouble over that but it was all worth it.:D
