Obama is a “Post Turtle” What’s a “Post turtle” .... When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a “Post Turtle”. “You know he didn’t get up there by himself, He doesn’t belong up there, He doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, He’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dimwit put him up there to begin with.” Member reactions:
People who do this to turtles should be shot on sight.
People who do this to politicians should be shot on sight too.
No, only turtles; people who do this to politicians should be given an award.
President Barack Obama was re-elected to a second term, defeating Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Many Americans stayed up late last night to see the live coverage of electoral vote count as the results were coming in. When the election outcome became clear, TV channels showed the joy and happiness of Obama supporters, and regrets and tears of Romney supporters whose votes did not add up enough to give Romney the victory. Romney and Obama agreed we all need to work together to get the country on track, yet today, emotions abound and America is divided between those who have won, and those who have lost their hopes for the next 4 years.
Photoshop any motivational or demotivational posters
connected to the past elections, or to anything we can expect in the next 4 years.
Your posters should follow the format of classic "motivational / demotivational posters" - black background, image in the middle, followed by the title word(s), and the text message below.
The image in the middle has to be photoshopped, so you can not just take unaltered photo and add text to it. To recall such kind of poster design, take a look at the good examples from our demotivational poster contest.
So the fat lady has finished singing. This morning many woke up, flicked on the TV and slapped their foreheads as they realized there was no sport on. The 2012 London Olympics are over.
Athletes are packing their bags and going home,
while the countries are waiting for their heroes who are bringing home hard-earned Olympic medals. Many countries are giving extra perks to their athletes for the medals. E.g. Russia's Putin officially announced that a special fund of $10 mln is set to be distributed among all Russian Olympic medalists. Most Olympic medalists didn't wait to get home to start celebrating, and partied hard already in London.
Take any Olympic medalists and show how they may (or may not) be celebrating their medals upon coming home.

It looks like Americans have elected President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for 4 more years. Congratulations to both sides for a very spirited contest. Now that John Kerry and John Edwards have apparently lost the election, what will they be doing? Create images of Kerry and Edwards post election 2004 and beyond.
