That’ll be enough personalized Obama-style posters for now

In what is becoming yet another reason to hate Facebook, somewhere around 85% of users have now stylized photos of themselves to look like Shepard Fairey’s Obama poster. It can be done through one of many online generators, but it should probably not be done.

If you are a stock broker, you should not be doing this. You are not running for president, nor are you the sitting president.

You may, however, make one if and only if:

  1. You have started a revolution (succeeded or failed), are currently leading a revolution, or plan on starting one.
  2. You can do something totally righteous, like burp the alphabet.
  3. You thought up a great idea, like training a squirrel to waterski on tiny skis made for squirrels.

Everyone else, please stop.
