From the first moment I heard the words "Despair.com", I knew there was a gem waiting
to be oohed and ahhhed over.
I was so right.
"I've still got to go see it." Claris biatched at me, in the midst of actually
doing real work that kept her hands tied and her web-browser closed.
I have no such restrictions on me. Oh yes, shitloads of work, no enthusiasm for it,
and a convenient office door that closes. So, blithely, I shut the office door and opened
up yea ol' browser.
I fell in love. Immediately. I found myself at Despair.com.
From the splash page, featuring the lithograph of one of their new products...Persistance:
Let it go, man. It's over. -
to the sticky pads...Burnout: Attitudes are contagious. Mine might kill you" -
to screen savers, lithographs, calenadars, t-shirts and more. This was my nirvana. I was home! Next Christmas, I'm shopping here.
It's meant for the disillusioned. The bitter. The socially deviant. The disaffected college students >(E.G., Sam)
It belongs to those in society that have been disappointed one too many times. It's that motivational message that says: Yup, you're right.
If I could work anywhere in the world... it'd have to be here. This is my niche!
Hell! I even found No Dignity.com's corporate identity...Teamwork: A few harmless flakes working
together can unleash an avalanche of destruction
How perfectly perfect can it be? I feel my pessimism lifting and spirits soaring. Well, maybe not, but hey... I laughed a lot.
