Why I shouldn’t be allowed on pinterest. (Also, if you made one of these and want me to delete it or link to you just tell me.)

I like pinterest.  But whenever I see motivational quotes on there I can’t help but think that they need a little something extra.

So I’ve added it.

I apologize.

No. In the middle of difficulty lies "ficul". Learn to spell.




Unless you're in the Olympics. Or the zombie apocalypse. Or any job interview ever.


Which is technically great revenge because my head is a fucking terrible place to live.


Unless it's braille. You can really fuck up a heart by rubbing it across braille.


Unless your dream is "not having to work anymore". Which is kind of what most of us are dreaming about. Otherwise we'd be working. Now I have a headache.


Unless you're worried that you misspelled something so you go proofread your quote and you say: "Why is there an 'e' at the end of 'never'?" Maybe I should erase that extra loop before someone makes fun of it in a blog. That would be wise."


Yesterday I chose to be Eleanor Roosevelt.


You also have fake wooden paneling. You need an interior decorator.




Your sweater just called you an asshole.


Never mind that there's a serial killer standing at the top of the stairs. He's probably just waiting for the bus. Really. Go on ahead.


Who left all these mustaches here?

You'll find that it's much less expensive. That's why amateur porn is so prevalent.


"Did you guys see that? That asshole just jumped off the roof. Probably because he confused 'imagination' with 'PCP'."~ Muhammad Ali


I can't tell if this image is purposely half fuzzy or if I've just had a stroke.


Really? Wait 12 hours.

...doing meth.

  1. It’s always to early to quit…doing meth. Classic. Hilarious. Love you tons. I personally wish you and yours a very Happy New Year!

  2. I smell a line of Bloggess-branded, not-so-motivational posters coming down the pike.

  3. Love these and LOVE your posts! Happy New Year!

  4. My adoration of you grows stronger every day. Your snark is legendary and your wit is violently sharp.

  5. consider this one more person inspired, or should i make that PIN-spired!

    happy new year all!

  6. My clothes talk behind my back all the time. Trust me when I say that asshole is not the worst thing that your sweater can call you. I tried to keep all my separate so they don’t get a chance to gossip, but ManFriend says that grownups wear shirts AND pants, not shirts OR pants.

    Hope your 2013 is filled with a billion more highs then lows.

  7. I’d buy your posters. All of them

    Carmen recently posted Yes Officer, I'll blow..

  8. The one with the mustaches, I think the bottom ones are more like angry eyebrows. Someone got confused and put their eyebrows beneath their mustache. Or maybe it’s not really a mustache, but a toupee.

    Cassondra recently posted How to increase breast milk supply, or make the most of what you have.

  9. UGH. I always hate those cheesy “I’ll feel better about this one day because I’m not really that much of a fatass.” quotes. The only thing worse are the quotes people post that are misspelled or grammatically incorrect. (Doesn’t everyone have spell check now? I think they even have it in China.) I’m always tempted to take a marker and correct them, but then I remember it’s on a computer screen and I can make it go away my closing the window. Now I can’t get all these damn commas to clean off.

  12. I am glad I am not the only one who sees the “motivational” stuff on Pinterest the same way! Wish I could block people from following me so I could make comments and my friends won’t know how seriously twisted I am. In the meantime, I love how seriously twisted you are!

  13. Thanks for saying what I’m always thinking. 🙂

  14. I love you!
    Happy New Year

  15. It is time to make cards from these. Please.

  16. A friend just turned me on to you the other day, and by “turned me on” I mean I am practically orgasmic with laughter every time I read another of your posts.

    If you worked these into real de-motivational posters, I’d definitely pin them to Pinterest. With, like, a voo-doo doll’s worth of pins.

    Cynthia recently posted Wake Up Call.

  17. Your demotivation posters are better than the professional ones.

  18. Sometimes I come across a motivational quote that I like, because it’s a reminder to me to, I don’t know, be less of a jackass in my head. Or something. But most of them need your editing. This is probably a decent representation of my typical ratio of motivation to snark: http://pinterest.com/tragicsandwich/messages/

    Tragic Sandwich recently posted Thank You!.

  19. MwahHaHaHa!! I like all of these so much better with your additions!

  20. How about the poster with just the word “Inspiration” on it. I’ve stared at it for hours at a time and… nothing!

    Robert K. Blechman recently posted Happy Executive Severance New Year!.

  21. I love your versions. I do the same thing in my head, but yours are MUCH better. I take it you are familiar with http://www.despair.com/ ? 😀

  22. I thought I was the only one who had snarky thoughts about motivational shit. This is awesome. My only regret is that, “It is what it is,” didn’t make the cut. Although that one is more pseudo-philosophical than pseudo-motivational. Still, it deserves to be mocked.

    Anne Stinnett (Wickedelfchild) recently posted Scars Are Sexy (But Not When You're Three).

  23. This is fun! It’s kind of like adding “in bed” to the end of Chinese fortunes. Only way snarkier, and involving less sex. Maybe you could add “in bed” to the end of the caption, because we could all use a little more sex. Or a lot. Unless you’re a prostitute, and then you probably could use less sex. Except then you’d get paid less. So may be prostitutes want more sex, too. Either way, everything goes better when it ends in bed.

  30. I love you. DESPERATELY.

  31. One more reason why I think you are amazing. I laughed until the tears flowed and then laughed some more… Happy New Year!

  32. Oh, I am so going to start leaving snarky comments like these on the motivational items I see pinned! Especially on the thinspiration crap, which always makes me want to punch kittens.

  33. I love Pinterest, but I am not into motivational quotes. They do nothing but piss me off. It’s like having fluffy bunnies and rainbow-colored butterflies all around you. Bring on the zombie apocalypse any day of the week! Which is why I have a zombie board – on Pinterest. 🙂

    Happy New Year to you!

    Crystal recently posted How warm is it outside?.

  34. Totally agree with the suggestion that a line of motivational posters (or digital images that can be used as desktop backgrounds, facebook cover images, etc.) is in order. Best wishes for continued awesomeness in 2013!

  35. I will never look at inspirational quotes in the same way again. Also? It would be awesome if you could look over my shoulder, interpreting each one for me when perusing FB.

  59. Those damn things are utterly repulsive.

    First of all, there’s nothing more likely to make you unhappy than TRYING LIKE CRAZY to be happy.

    Second of all, you don’t need to be MOTIVATED OUT OF YOUR MIND if you have a decent economy, welfare state, and healthcare system.

    Third of all – you still follow all those weird mormon housewives we were given at the beginning of pinterest? Unsubscribe, for pity’s sake! (Or not, at least you bring us the funnies)

  64. Love it! I have made such snarky comments in my head. I hate when my facebook friends post these things because they seem like a cry for help, or at least….I feel almost bullied into “liking” them, as if I ignore them I could be labeled a cold hearted b*tch. When all I want is to give a snarky comment which I guess would label me a b*tch….sigh…it is a catch 22.

  95. The one’s that always get me are the words ‘friends’ or ‘family’ stenciled on to the wall surrounded by photo’s. What if you don’t have that many close friends?

  102. Thank you soo much for this post. I was having a horrible day and some of these made me laugh out loud and now I am sitting here with a smile on my face. You are the best!

  103. And I thought some of the other posts that made me laugh soooo hard were funny . . . silly me.

  104. Right so …

    I live in my car which means there is this whole tedious process that includes when it’s time to climb in the back, you pile all the shit that was in the back to the front, then cover up with blankets and such to keep warm since it’s currently snowing. Then of course you reverse that order when you want to move from the back to the front.

    After settling in and thinking hmm, I wonder what the bloggess is up to today and upon reading “Which is technically great revenge because my head is a fucking terrible place to live.” I lol’d so hard that I almost peed myself and had to scramble as fast as I could to the front to run into the nearest bathroom at my local wifi spot.

    That was THE most fun ’round these parts that I have had in a long time and my dog kept whacking me with his waggling tail not knowing what was happening but joining in on the excitement.

    I have the biggest smile on my face and keep giggling every time I think of the rent free revenge response … So THANK YOU for that one!

    So much <3 for you right now … Best last day of 2012 EVER! (still laughing)

  105. I <3 you so very much 🙂

  108. I passionately hate images on Pinterest that are just text on a coloured background. That’s not an image. That’s a quote that you wanted to put on Pinterest so you made a coloured square in a graphics program and used the add text tool. They get SLIGHTLY more points if there’s some kind of imagery but even most of those are pretty stupid, so I fully support mockery at every opportunity.

Yesterday at lest 4 of the ones you posted showed up. I think some of these people need to find tumblr or something cuz Facebook is not the place for this. But I’m only evil on the inside so I just think angry thoughts and talk about them here (I guess). I happen to not need other ppl to post inspirational pics on my time line my moodiness is all the inspiration I need thank you very much ( I should make that it to a insprational quote.

    This was great! I had such a hard time getting out of bed today, but I had things to do and i had to remember that depression lies. I finally got out of bed at 2:30, made brownies for the New Years party, which I am actually looking forward to, and sat down to catch up with the Internet. It’s always risky, sometimes it can bring me down, but today you were there. This was really great! I still want to go back to bed, but these made me laugh for a bit. Thanks for that.

  148. A bit off topic but wanted to be sure you received this gift of information. AMC TV has provided the perfect Valentine’s present just for you (the rest of us will watch from the sidelines). On Thursday, February 14 the show “Immortalized” will premiere. Two words: Competitive. Taxidermy.

  149. I always do this in my head when I see the memes and think. “Man, I should totally mock them openly.” Sometimes I do and I get a laugh, other times I forget what I was going to say. Then I remember I’m being followed by an elephant. Sure, I turn around and he’s there whistling and reading a newspaper like it’s just a coincidence, but I know he’s following me.

    Drunk is a better way to describe me than revenge anything.

    Simply because, I don’t give a fuck about anything if I have my alcohol snuggled up next to me… pouring down my throat… into my belly. Who could have anger issues if there is alcohol involved? Not me. Not one bit :).

  171. This post and the comments made me sad. I found the additions amusing, but all the comments applauding their snarkiness are kind of troubling. I’ve never thought of Jenny as snarky. Sarcastic, certainly – magnificently so! But snarky means snide and unpleasant. Mean-spirited. This seems to be the antithesis of our Jenny. I know that inspirational quotes/posters can get old when they’re basically spammed in your FB feed, it’s true. But there’s a real person behind that post. Words can be pretty powerful, and as we’ve seen on this blog and on Jenny’s Twitter feed, can help pull people back from the abyss of suicide. I have a friend who shares these sort of posts when she’s doing particularly badly. It’s a signal for me to pay attention and step in to ask if there’s anything I can do to help. I can just imagine how she’d feel if I made fun of one of her posts. I know I’d be pretty devastated. (Jenny, I know I’m taking this way too seriously. I laugh my ass off most days when I read your blog, and you truly are an inspiration!)

    (It’s okay to take things too seriously every once in awhile. And it’s okay to not take them seriously enough as well. In between lies humanity. ~ Jenny)

While I laughed hysterically at something in pretty much every chapter, I also admire how brave you are to share your life in such a way. Your book also made my own experience with living with a sometimes really unstable bipolar husband seem like less of a challenge.

    Please keep writing, I really want to read more about your wonderful work in the study of water squirrels, and the internet can always use more pictures of cats in funny wigs. 😀

    Miss Gee recently posted Okay, You Can Skip This..

  178. Okay, so funny story. I don’t have eyes (that’s not the punchline) and I’m a teacher (still not the punchline) and one of my students (who also doesn’t have eyes) (which also isn’t the punchline) has parents who introduced me to your blog back in August. Since then, I’ve stalked it in a manner not dissimilar to what several of my friends did when we saw a (okay, they saw) a real live Beyonce the Giant Metal Chicken through someone’s living room window. Anyway, there’s not yet been a blog post that I could only appreciate half of due to my blindness. And then there’s this one. Can someone go through and caption the graphics, please? I could just run to a sighted neighbor and demand they visit your blog, but I just moved here and it’s 12am on the New Year and they’re drunk and they might shoot me and they probably wouldn’t realize I’m blind because we’ve never met and I (actually, I don’t currently have in fake eyes, they would probably realize I’m blind) (unless they’re really, REALLY drunk) — still, please? And now it strikes me that this frankly wasn’t a funny story at all. I’m a horrible storyteller. Oh, but bonus: You probably didn’t know until this moment that you have people who are so dedicated to reading your antics that even without eyes, we care. See? You learned something. You’re welcome.

Well, a few of us have ones with the same beautiful pictures but say things like, “procrastination”, “lethargy”…you get the picture, and you REALLY do because these are perfection.

  206. I haven’t read here in quite some time. At first glance, I just saw the memes without your commentary and thought, “Shit, things can really change in a year. Dooce is single and The Blogess lost her everfucking mind.” Thank you for not losing your everfucking mind.

  207. The first one reminds me of a fantastic t-shirt I bought years ago, but was ultimately too ashamed to wear in public. It said: You can’t have “manslaughter” without “laughter.”

  254. I was at work last week (I do marketing for a fashion company so no, it was not my own fault that I was on Pinterest at work) and I saw this one saying ” you have to pull an arrow backwards before you let it fly, so if life is pulling you backwards that means it is about to launch you into something great” or some such thing. I very calmly closed my lap top, pushed my chair back, walked out of my office, and down the hall where I locked myself in a bathroom stall and whisper screamed at the ceiling. BECAUSE A HUMAN LIFE IS EXACTLY LIKE AN ARROW, EXACTLY! So yeah, clearly I have some issues, but if I can drill down to what is really the bedrock of my point, thank you Jenny, for making fun of inspirational posters. It’s nice to feel that someone understands.

  260. I know that someone probably already said this but I just can’t read 264 comments to find out. And I know I’m now the A-hole Extraordinaire for pointing this out, but the punctuation in the door mat or whatever quote is actually correct. “It’s” is a conjunction of “it is” as in “it is never crowded”. “Its”, on the other hand, refers to possession.

    As someone who is just as irritated by grammatical errors as you, I feel it’s my duty to let you know about yours.

    But all of that aside, these are hilarious and I especially enjoyed the Google search term list. SOLID GOLD.

  261. I read this post earlier today, and came back online a couple hours later to see this quote in poster form on my friend’s facebook wall: “Think positive, & positive things will happen”…LIKE AIDS, ASSHOLE?

  262. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read this since the day you posted it. Like every time I open Facebook and get really tired of the inspirational quotes. Then I think WWTBD (that’s right — What would the bloggess do).. And then I reread this, and the world is right again.

  263. I’m going to get fired.

    Worth it.
