A collection of unfortunate design errors.
Some ten years ago, I found myself with a terrible job working for an equally terrible paparazzi company that involved me doing night shifts where, for a large chunk of the time, there was nothing to do. You had to make your own fun on those nights and there was only so many films that I could watch on my laptop, so at one point I decided to start a blog devoted to things that looked uncannily like sex toys. because, you know, why not? I don’t know what inspired this – presumably, I found a couple of pictures somewhere or other and decided that this could be an amusing distraction.
Of course, as soon as I quit the job, I forgot all about this particular blog, which was not exactly a passion project to begin with. It might have remained at the back of my consciousness, barely remembered, had I not received an email from Tumblr congratulating me on its first ten years. Clearly, their automated system doesn’t take into account just how long a page might have been dormant.
A quick look at the page made me chuckle in much the same juvenile way that it did at the time and so it seemed a good idea to share this collection of misguided, ignorant or – possibly – rather malicious design failures with you here. This is, no doubt, the tip of the iceberg and as ever, we welcome additions so that we can – ahem – penetrate the subject further.
