One of the most exciting internet trends of recent years has been the rise of demotivational posters.
To understand where these come from and why some of them are so darn funny we need to understand what a motivational poster is. These are, well yes, they are posters, you are right. And they are designed to motivate you. They might say stirring and patriotic things like “Your Country Needs You” or soft and fuzzy phrases like “You are Special”. They usually build your self esteem and are always sober, earnest and never sarcastic or with huge amounts of vomit or butt cleavage in them.
Demotivational posters, on the other hand, are designed to parody these motivational posters. They are often sarcastic, they reduce your self esteem and they often include horrific amounts of horrible body parts and weird stuff.
Ok, that’s enough of the theory let’s move onto the practical part of the lesson.
