The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

So, I'm starting to work on my presentation for HighEdWeb in October. My topic is the lessons we've learned in our redesign process. I'd like the presentation to be humorous but of real value. What keeps coming to me is that there has been a lot of good things, some bad things, and some really ugly things (can you say 'furloughs'?) throughout our process.

Last year, I brought the LOLs at HighEdWeb when I brought the LOLcats in my presentation. And of course, I want to continue the tradition, but maybe add to it. I started off with the idea of making demotivational type posters for my slides.

But I kept coming back to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (which by the way if you didn't know is the best movie ever made in any genre of all time with the possible exception of Terminator 2 which if I used that for my presentation would probably get me terminated. Just sayin'.).

Anyway... so I started thinking about maybe doing LOLcats and demotivational posters based on the movie. Sounds weird, right? I mean really weird.

So, I'm asking for your input here. I'm going to toss out a few examples that I threw together and I want you to let me know if it works or not. I also need to know if you'd get sick of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly LOLcats and posters after 45 minutes.

Here they are. Be honest! Funny? Not funny? Too wierd?

A Minion's Vacation

I can't say that none of this happened, because most of it did. I perhaps over-dramatized the things that my minion didn't do before he left. Perhaps.

However, if anything I under-dramatized what we did to his desk while he was gone. Seriously. Check it out:

Shiny desk is shiny

Check out all the photos here.

Eight rolls of aluminum foil. Eight. Thank God it's cheap! We even foiled the inside of the drawers. I sure hope that I don't get in trouble for this. We'll recycle the aluminum, we promise!!
