Poor Mr Pictogram

Poor pictogram man; he’s obviously in a state of complete despair over the loss of his car. I wonder if he’s based on someone real?

Unlucky pictogram man

Has anybody compiled a web site of unlucky pictogram people? That’d be a fun project.

Actually maybe he didn’t lose his car. Maybe he just got outbid on the signed copy of the Doug Anthony Allstars book “Book” which I’m selling on Ebay. (Was that plug too subtle?)

Sign of the times

Spot the difference between these two signs warning of window washers at work above the footpaths in the city…

Exhibit A, Manchester Lane:
Men Working Overhead, Manchester Lane

Exhibit B, Collins Street:
Workers Above, Collins Street

The second crew actually did have a woman in their number.

I wonder if eventually all companies will phase out the former version in favour of the latter.
