Week #10 Puppies and Kittens Calendar

A simple enough sort of post-ironic, cognitive dissonance kind of idea. What I want to do is make a simple calendar with pictures of puppies and kittens at play just like the ones you see at any bookstore. Below each picture will be some text in large sort of white bubbly letters. But instead of saying something cute like “Hang in there” it will say a disturbing fact from the modern world like “One in twelve people worldwide is malnourished, including 160 million children under the age of 5”.

A simple enough idea which I may get around to doing some day. I think it would be a pretty hilarious thing to have around and just sell at Mishap events. Or maybe even try and sell them at a few independent book/gift stores. If anyone else out there likes the idea and wants to do it I’m down with that. You can even say you thought of it yourself.

  1. Damian, I'd love to help make this. I love cognitive dissonance that involves puppies. I'll help supply the pics and factoids.

    Let's do this
