I keep a small collection of trinkets on a shelf my desk. I'll show you my workspace in a post later this week--I'm looking for suggestions on how to improve it and what to get rid of! But anyways, I started looking through the trinkets to decide what to get rid of and spotted this.
It's missing a few pieces, and some marketing catch phrases. So let me try again:
|The Desktop Titanic...$6.95 worth of amusement "when you get that sinking feeling!"|
Because a disaster where over 1000 people froze to death in icy waters because somebody thought appearances were the most important things is something to compare with small disasters at the office!
I was born on the 71st anniversary of the Titanic sinking and it's fascinated me since I was a child. My mom got me this little "desktop Titanic,"complete with mini lifeboat, a few years ago. I finally looked at it and realize I can't keep it in good conscience. I have plenty of books that treat the subject with respect. What was left of this little model went in the trash.
What's your WTF?! item?
