Love Hurts
Contest Directions: Love is a beautiful thing. But too often love shows its ugly sides - it's no fun having one's feelings hurt, having one's heart broken, being dumped, or being cheated on.
For the upcoming Valentine's Day, let's create demotivational posters dedicated to any aspects of love and relationships. Try to make them mimic the classic motivational posters format like the example above - black background, image in the middle, followed by the title word(s), and demotivational message below. The image in the middle has to be photoshopped, so you can not just take unaltered photo and add text to it.

  • Vladimir Putin Just Wants to be Loved

    Vladimir Putin Just Wants to be Loved
        • Funny but I'm not sure is demotivational
        • Yes it is.
          This guy spent $51,000,000,000.00 state money to have love from anybody. Paranoia!?
        • I like the chop on its own, just wish it was framed in a more classic "motivational poster" style. and it's true Putin did spend $51 bln of the state money on the Sochi Olympic Games, making it the most expensive Olympics ever. Right now the state still needs to pay back many loans and expenses for the Olympics, so they are devaluating the ruble to effectively pay less after inflation.
        • Funny stuff and I'll steal the feet, me chop thief.

  • Half Of All Marriages End In Divorce

    Half Of All Marriages End In Divorce
        • So true. I saw figures closer to 70%, depending on the country. The highest divorce rate in the US is in California - about 80%.
        • I played conservative so I wouldn't get accused of inflation LOL
        • Clever. It should be noted, however, the cited divorce rate is a reflection of serial divorce. The majority (around 60%) are for life. "The method preferred by social scientists in determining the divorce rate is to calculate how many people who have ever married subsequently divorced. Counted that way, the rate has never exceeded about 41 percent, researchers say."(http://www.nytimes.com/2005/04/19/health/19divo.html)
        • Your numbers are very well researched pacovilla. But I just rounded the numbers in my head and chopped, and kept the text to a minimum as to not overpower the image photoshopped.
        • And the remaining half end in betryal
        • Pacovilla, thanks for pointing out this important factor in the stats (I will remember it). makes sense too - the serial divorces dilute the real statistics.
