Kottke refers us to the Awkward Stock Photos blog, which makes us regret that we haven’t saved for retirement so we can slip one in on our next project.

As a tonic, Kottke also refers us to new Mad Men posters, which merely make us insanely jealous.


@Benedick: Listed in the blogroll under Indulgences.

@nojo: You’re a patient man and I thank you for it.

@SanFranLefty: @mellbell: One would hope that they are building up towards that, yes.
