From the “chronically cynical” folks at Despair.Inc. via Firebox, Despair Posters let you tell the world what you really think.

At Despair, Inc., we believe motivational products raise hopes only to dash them. Our posters feature some of our most depressing Demotivators® designs, so you can skip the delusions that motivational products induce and head straight for the disappointments that follow.

Choose from a witty selection of sayings, such as:

  • “It’s always darkest just before it goes pitch black.”
  • “When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it’s really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you’re pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it’s death by meteor. “
  • Potential poster - Despair Inc. - Firebox

  • … and more,
    including my personal all-time favourite —
  • “Not everyone gets to be an astronaut when they grow up.”

Also available as a calendar, for daily demotivation. And why not go whole hog? Top off your office decor with the Pessimist’s Mug, bearing the text: “This mug is now half-empty.” tip — check the upper right hand corner of their site for the link that displays prices in Euros and US Dollars, if those £ pounds mean nothing to your pocketbook. Rest assured, you won’t be left out in the cold — Firebox does do business with oodles of customers in the United States.
