Today's Misguided Inspiration

As my wife was showing me the utterly ludicrous fee she has to pay to take her anatomic pathology board certification exam, I realized that there is probably a niche market for obscene check designs. You know: rather than a sports team logo or kittens or whatever people normally get, you'd have variations on the bird, the full moon, the kissing and sucking of various body parts, to strike just the right note of seething resentment with your payment.

I wonder how hard it would be to start a check printing company... Nah, I really don't think I'd want that much association with such a thing. Plus I'm sure that if I've thought of this, someone else has too.

HAHAHA!!! I would buy some - a nice variety-pack book. I think if we're going to be screwed out of our money, the recipients of said money should be screwed out of at least a few moments of the will to see.

I think that might a actually exist, or at least did at one time. Seems like I've seen some, or an ad...or maybe that's just wishful thinking. Either way, sure would be nice to drop that finger on the assholes who are overcharging you, huh?

We have had checks with glaring vultures on them, the painting The Scream, checks with roaches, ants, flies, just about anything horrific you want to communicate. They're fun. :)
