As someone who works in an environment filled with all of those phony motivational posters, I take great delight in the hilarious de-motivational posters of countless email forwarding fame. A buddy sent me this one in today’s honor:
For those of you who slept through that day of junior high history, remember Washington spent all of November/December 1776 retreating through New Jersey after surrendering New York to the British. After re-grouping in Pennsylvania, Washington crossed the icy Delaware to attack the Hessians in New Jersey on Christmas. It was a daring (some might say fool-hardy) offensive that gave the Americans a much-needed morale boost following the loss of New York. My buddy Mike says if you have to explain the joke, it probably is not funny. Well, I found this funny. So there.
