During World War II the servicemen suffered quite a bit from the dangers of unprotected sex. In response the U.S. government commissioned this wonderfully horrific set of posters. Meant to scare the soldiers straight with such taglines as “Men who know…say no to prostitutes” and “A minute with Venus. A year with Mercury!”
Brilliant, pure genius. I know these “propaganda” posters would make be think twice before bunking up with the local floozie. I think the current government should re-release a campaign like this. How fun would that be to see these littering the walls of the subway. In my opinion advertising and messages have become more politically correct without good reason. If a message communicates then it communicates…you might as well be upfront about it. Either way…I find these to be terrifying and hilarious at the same time.
Anyone that was watching the FIFA World Cup today surely witnessed one of the most unfortunate goals of all time…that is if you’re an England fan, or Robert Green. This has got to be one of the worst fails in World Cup history. I feel really bad for him, I’ll bet he never hears the end of this. For us here on the left of the Atlantic though, this was the best possible thing that could have happened. Go USA!!!
Too bad for the English the ball had a little too much…wait for it…English on it. I’m thinking it will be a long time before they’re able to live this one down. If the first game had this much excitement maybe the next month won’t be too bad…and maybe soccer will catch on over here. At least this way it’s similar to NASCAR or Jersey Shore, you watch it to see the wrecks and crashes.
No words can express the joy this picture brings to me (this is a close second or… maybe this). I’ve viewed it hundreds of times now and I still can’t help but smile. I would love to speak to the photographer that took this amazing image. If you’re ready to begin your trip to Happytown start scrolling down…
I feel for both of the people here…the girlfriend is extremely cruel in what she does but you can tell that her boyfriend isn’t the most sane individual either. I’m sure she has good reason for her actions but she probably could have handled it a little better. Either way, I think both are a bit nutty…but I’m leaning to the boyfriend as the one that will have to go.
If you thought filing cabinets were lame and boring, you were right…until now. If I had an actual office I would get these in a heartbeat…that’s assuming that they’re available for purchase, which I don’t believe they are. These are by far the coolest filing cabinets I’ve ever come across.What a brilliant idea and a tremendous execution. I honestly would pay so much for these.
It looks like Pizza Hut needs to head over to www.dictionary.com and look up the meaning of “any”. This is no joke. If you go to their website right now you’ll see this as your first option. Apparently any crust or any toppings excludes stuffed crust or double toppings. In addition to that, they’ve also advertised it as “Just $10″ but right underneath states that prices may vary. I understand all the “small print” stuff, but come on. Pizza Hut get your shit together.
Clearly they think we’re morons and that “any” means anything less than that.
While graffiti can be nasty and dirty and in most cases doesn’t add to the scenery or environment, there are cases where it actually is welcomed and can be considered true art. Here is a wonderful example of when defacing public property has improved it’s message. I really feel that the world can use more messages like this one. Thank you to the artist who appended the sign and turned it into an inspiring moment.
