It's good to know the teachings of Steven Wright are being mass produced with stupid pictures on stupid coffee mugs so stupid people can look at them on the stupid internet I mean who really cares anyway about any of this stupid shiat, this sucks I'm gonna pull a gun on a stupid cop.

"If you can't learn to do something well,
you may as well learn to enjoy doing it badly"

"maybe the purpose of your life is to serve
as a warning to others"

Not sure if can be credited with these, but that is where I learned them. I use them all the time with my students.

I gotta order the consulting one for the cube farm here. Of course that might not go over well with the gov't people here. After all, us contractors are the scum of the earth, at least if you ask the goverment people.

overconfidence is actually a good one.

I think they're all good ones.

But the original "Despair" one is my favourite.

I'll stick to the Cluelessness one I've got in my office.

My intro to thermodynamics teacher would put the failure one as the cover sheet on our tests.

Failure: When your best just isn't good enough.

Seeing as I work in a musuem that is always full of tourists (cruise groups to boot) I just absolutely love this one:

Idiocy: Never Underestimate the Power of Stupid People in Large Groups

God I hate tourists.

Skwidd: EVERYTHING's suited for disaffected college students!

(trust me, I know.)

there aren't any stephen wright quotes on there as far as i can tell. you think wright invented the aphorism? jeez.

a couple of the quotes i recognize as canonical pessimistic sayings. but most appear to be original to despair.

please join me in petitioning them to release 'elitism' as a poster. tooooo perfect for too many people.

If you look at the bottom of each page, each one says it would make a good gift for (lists other things and then ends with) disaffected college students. I wonder if they get much University business...
