Achievement poster


(From despair.com. Warning: the promotion of their merchandise is so huge and in-your-face that it almost removes any interest in seeing their actual content. Big flunk for that.)

Flunk, eh. In the US it would be a big FAIL too. :O)

Oh dear.

I fear, Eo, you've missed the point of the site - the concept.

The whole thing is a parody, and a screamingly successful one too - especially if you've fallen for it.
Behold:
"We're not satisfied til you're not satisfied."
and
"A company that would create dissatisfied customers in the process of exploiting demoralized employees while selling overpriced and ineffective products to remediate the problems caused by the very process itself. "
and so on, ad infinitum.
The "hugeness" and "in-your-faceness" are requisite parts of the satire.
Without them, it would limp and unfunny - like Amazon.

Ooooookay... it might be.

BTW, TD, "fail" was my first thought, but it's so over-used, and I think "flunk" is funnier.
