Poster Children for Poster Children


Every day, thousands of children must go without causes to represent. And every day, thousands of posters are printed with no children to promote their causes. Please, don’t let your poster go without a sad child’s face.

These children have no posters.

So, I’ve been deeply mired in working on my poster for this conference. One of the things I’ve been doing is selecting good examples from my data to illustrate my points. So-called “poster children” examples.

What with the craziness of work, making travel arrangements, as well as loads of other family and life obligations, I have had no time for blogging. Either the writing or the reading. This makes me sad. Clearly I need a poster child to express this sadness.

In other news, the Just Posts are coming right up. If there are posts from August that you’d like us to include, send them along!

  1. hysterical. i’ve been organizing all my digital photos (9 years worth!!!) and have many many shots of a sad May Queen that would be perfect for a poster.

  2. Ha! I mean … oh, how sad!

  3. These are JUST the pictures I need for my poster!! :-)

  4. Thanks for a good giggle!

  5. Count me in to join your cause! I think we can connect hundreds of poster children with toddler travesties like-

    1) CDS- (Cookie Depletion Syndrome) “Won’t you give this child just one more cookie?”

    2) Diaper Denial Disease – Against misdiagnosis of the smellies “My diaper is NOT dirty mommy”

    3) Pre-mature bedtime – “When was the last time you listened to your child? He said ‘I don’t wanna go to bed'”

  6. I loved this post!! You are too funny, woman. You should have a poster for poster children that have silly moms.

  7. So where are the sad children in pants posters?
    Laughing.

    but i don’t want to go home.
    but i want to go home.

    but i’m too tired to walk.

  9. Love it! They really do look like they need a cause, especially in that first picture. Poor, poor children!

  10. This is so awesome. I think those children need to go on YOUR poster.

  11. So pudgy–I want to pinch those cheeks!

  12. Are these children royalty-free?

    (teeing that one up for you)

  13. My god, I’ve missed your sense of humour.

  14. This is completely hysterical! Love the pictures and the captions…

  15. Ok. I clicked over feeling more than a little exhausted and a bit cranky and still a little sorry for myself after the 11th … And now I am having a hard time typing because you’ve got me laughing out loud!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    And good luck with the poster!

  16. And the online catalog, in German or English, mystified me. ,
