Motivational posters

Remember those motivational posters that were so popular in the workplace back in the 90s? I believe people have 'evolved' beyond motivational posters. I mean, has anyone seen a motivational poster in their workplace in the last 5 years? I believe employers now understand how offensive they were.

There was one in the kitchenette of my office that read something like "Dreams are the difference between good people and great people". I'm sure that's not the exact wording, but you get the picture. I would counter that "Dreams are the difference between sleeping people who never get caught because the boss is their sister-in-law, and hard-working, productive people like me", but I've never seen a poster like that.

Below are some motivational posters you are welcome to print and hang in YOUR workplace. Some of these made me laugh out loud, so I hope you enjoy them. All can be clicked to enlarge.



















Tomorrow is the date of our rescheduled block party with the neighbors. It was rescheduled from Sept 27th due to rain. It hasn't rained in 3 weeks, but the forecast for tomorrow is for rain! It appears out block party is doomed.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Those are so wrong, on so many levels. And I love it! If I were a religious person, those would be the pages in my bible... ;)

Haha! Funny posters. I always thought I'd like to sample some Arab balls - until I saw these, that is! ;-)

Glad you had a good time in NYC!

That said, your block party, show some courage in the face of adversity. Hold the party even if it rains. Rent a gigunda-tent.

I've always said boobs are really useful appendages. Don't know how you guys get along without them.
