    I LOVE the “Jump” picture

  2. The black pill or the red pill. Which will it be Neo?

    Making a gimlet as we speak.

    What does the last one have to do with consumerism?

      @Triterion: Who cares? It’s an adorable little kid? It can probably be used for anything indicating government or the banks given the Grecian columns.

    • Rectilinear Propagation says:

      @Triterion: The same thing that Star Wars has to do with consumerism. Absolutely nothing…on it’s own. They’d probably photo shop it for an article.

    Invest in shoes! Be like Carrie Bradshaw, the woman who lived in her shoe…

  6. dripdrop says:

    These are all really good! I think I like “FDIC” the best.

  7. mmmmmm, Bombay Sapphire!

  8. Brazell says:

    I think that the “JUMP” sign is in very bad taste. Yeah! You people who have been laid off from no fault of your own, commit suicide, you f*ckers! That people feel so justified in their illogical hate of anybody who holds a paper-pushing job, regardless of pay, is absurd. Not everybody can afford to make political signs, take the day off from work, and tell people who have fallen on hard times to kill themselves.

    • @MichaelBrazell:

      That struck a nerve, a little?

      I’m sorry but I think that picture is funny. Anyone who sees this kinda sign and actually commits suicide has problems to begin with. Besides the fact that anyone working stocks should know that the floor can fall out at any time.

    • @MichaelBrazell: I think whoever it was meant either for the stocks to jump in price (if he had a level head) or for the people to jump the ship (if he was an idiot, which unfortunately is more likely).

      • zentex says:

        @Lucifer_Cat: I’m thinking its a reference to all the suicides from the Depression back in the day.

        That makes it more relevant if you consider the person meant that the idiots who got us into this mess should do the world a favor and remove themselves from the gene pool.

    Yay! :)

    If that first pic is a drug dealer then I want to do drugs and pay for them with sex.

    Great pics today! :)

    DCBliss is beautiful. It kind of reminds me of the default XP wallpaper though.
