Photo Phriday: Cards That Say Too Much

It has taken me a while to get through all the email I’ve received over the past month, and like most folks, I prioritize by subject line and sender, so most of the “Holiday Greetings” emails I’ve received have been put on the back-burner   Earlier this week I opened one of these long-neglected e-cards and was shocked by what I saw. Shocked!

This vendor (who shall go unnamed), designed and sent this particularly graphic card to clients around the globe including yours truly.  Witness:

Awkward Holiday Card

Eek!  Am I the only one who sees something a little non-PG in this holiday greeting?

Wouldn’t want to be the one who okayed this mass mailing… And the real shame of it is that what they’ve done – making a donation to help those impacted by Sandy – is overshadowed by our reactions to the card’s imagery.

Photo Phriday: Legos of Walmart

Have you ever seen the blog People of Walmart? If you have, you’re probably chuckling and rolling your eyes about it as you read this. If you haven’t, make sure to take a gander (when your boss is not around to catch you and question your productivity or hear your visceral reaction to the content).  

Anyway, I found myself in said consumer-goods powerhouse the other day and there were some “sights” to see (but I didn’t feel right about taking their photos – there’s that manners thing again). I did, however, stumble upon an inanimate object that I didn’t feel any remorse about capturing…  

Guarding the entrance, I found this giant Lego Indiana Jones:  

Indiana Jones is the MAN... apparently...


At first glance I didn’t notice anything peculiar. But then I had a sort of Disney-cartoon-subliminal-message-conspiracy moment: I took a closer look and noticed that apparently the good Dr. Jones isn’t shy about putting his ample manhood on display.

What happened to the days of asexual Legos?
Mourning my innocence,

Lego people - Rated PG
