Wed 13 Apr 2011
Tomorrow, April 14, 2011 will be the 99th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. We’ve had the 100th anniversary on our calendars for a while, and we will be looking for ways to count down the days leading to an inevitably disappointing commemoration next year.
Anyway, there is no shortage of Titanic-related stuff out there. But one of the funniest and most irreverent things we have found (almost as good as the Titanic ice cube molds we highlighted last year = brilliant!) is the “Desktop Titanic: For When You Have that Sinking Feeling!” from Running Press.
The Desktop Titanic is described: “It’s rocky in the sea of office survival. And statistics show that workers are drowning: 80% are stressed; 77% are completely burned out. With waves of paperwork and pressure, who wouldn’t want to send distress signals from their desks? To save a friend-or yourself-with a sympathetic lifesaver, we offer you Desktop Titanic. With its mini maritime-disaster replica and 32-page book including life-saving tips to stay afloat in the office, life can go on!”
This is a great mix of popular and workplace culture and perfect for our 100th anniversary commemoration of the Titanic disaster.
