This company makes posters that are take-offs on those inspiring, motivational posters, with beautiful empowering pictures that one would see around the offices of big corporations, or that employees would be handed as achievement awards. So, these guys turn it around, and pretend that they do the opposite - give you pessimistic demotivators that sort of cut you down to size, or a little lower. But, aside from the fact that they're very funny, the brilliant and ingenious thing about them is that they're actually not mean and pessimistic at all, if you look a little deeper. On the contrary, they all seem to deliver some clever wisdom when you look at things a little deeper. Like that one there: "Hard work often pays off after time. But laziness always pays off now." Sure, why work hard when you can work smarter. Life is lived right now, not next week, so no big need to suffer. Or that one here on Indifference: "It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile. But it doesn't take any to just sit there with a dumb look on your face." And it has this picture of a majestic leopard who just lies there without moving a muscle. There's something zen about it all.

There's no time to procrastinate. You can do that later.
