This guy is a genius. His blatant "dumb-dumb" sales approach, I believe, will actually sell some of these things. (Not to me though, I make own because I great artist too! ;) )

I think this guy has been watching too much Banzai.

Mind you, I'm quite tempted by the

You know, if you go to one of these graphic companies, and there are all these girls and guys in front of their small iMacs or lamp-like Macs, and then you see the Art Director (the one with the ponytail), and he has the biggest Mac of all of them with the biggest monitor, and usually all of this sitting on a glass desk next to the MontBlanc pens, and you know exactly that this guy is not doing ANY graphics work at all anymore....

... then you can imagine on what type of desk this artwork ends up.

P.S. Replace "graphic companies" with "investment bankers" and "Macs" with "PC's" (adjust sizes accordingly), and it works as well.

I for one laught. It's too funny, especially the FAQ questions - what a great way to recycle, I've got some letter I didn't want to throw away - I will now be able to display them 'artistically'

>>>P.S. Replace "graphic companies" with "investment bankers"

Is that rhyming slang?

Sorry - [google.co.uk...] for the uninitiated.

"Investment banker" or more commonly "Merchant banker" is rhyming slang in England for a word which roughly translates to 'contemptible person', which is what the people you describe surely are.

Apologies for being so geo-centric.

Merchant bankers being an addition to the ranks of "monogamers" I presume ;)
