Career Fair 'Fail'

Posted by: Chris Lesinski | November 9, 2009 at 3:00PM

Epic career!

Fail? Really??

I think FAIL Blog is the real terrorist here: I regularly feel like they need a waterboarding.

Calling this a fail is kind of a stretch. If I were going to slap an Arial Black comment on this picture it might be "IRONIC" or "MILDLY AMUSING," but not "FAIL."

Who's failing? The guy with the terrorist shirt? With unemployment at 10.2% in October, you have to seek work anywhere you can. The economy is a bigger threat than this "terrorist."

And speaking of the "terrorist," why isn't the Homeland Security worker detaining him?  Maybe that's the fail?

But look at him. He's too skinny to have gone through 67 weeks at an Afghan training camp. He's also a little pale considering those long days in the desert sun.

She's not falling for his shirt, because Homeland Security obviously endorses racial profiling. So maybe this is a "political correctness" fail? That woman will feel awfully stupid when this kid brings down the entire career fair.

Nope, this fail goes to FAIL Blog.  Pure and simple.

Succeed Blog

BORING

Look what somebody came up with! It's succeedblog.org –- as in, the opposite of failblog.org.

They do posts like the “hamburger success” above (which, by the way, becomes a fail the moment someone tries to eat it). They have other images and videos of positivity. You get the idea.

Problem is SucceedBlog is a blog FAIL. Success is boring!

Have you ever seen a movie or a TV show where someone just keeps on succeeding over and over? No. That would be terrible. Can you imagine Wile E. Coyote feasting on roadrunner carcass after roadrunner carcass? No one wants to see that. The only time a race is exciting is when there's at least one loser.

Our culture revels in failure. And as our blog proves, we'll continue to revel in failure as well.
