    There’s no room to say anything passive aggressive. Very sad. I am going to drown my sorrows in a bowl of Post Tits, so much better than raisin bran.

      Post Tits, the cereal that produces its own milk.

    Save them for the zombie apocalypse. You can use them as toilet paper.

      Just don’t wipe with the sticky side.

    Yeah, let’s reduce the creation of useless post-its with huge chunks of dark mountains, recycle that whole box, and finally, re-use one post it– fold it so that it is all sharp corners, and return it to the designer…

    Actually, I’m pretty sure that would work pretty well with blue ink.

    The note writer’s problem lies in having only a red pen for some reason.

      I still prefer not to have to squint to read a note. Perhaps those white-out pens are the answer.

      Silver. It would work best with a silver Sharpie.

    I think black ink might work.

    Of course, if the mountains were only a shade or two darker than the background you’d keep your spiffy graphic AND still be functional.

      I see the woman, but I wouldn’t say cleavage. It’s more sideboob of a topless woman lying on her back and arching it a bit, head to the left side and legs to the right.

    Those really do look like the worst post-it notes ever. Why would they cover most of it with dark graphics? Did someone purposely make it so you can’t use most of it for writing? If that’s the case, a bit ironic, considering what’s written at the top.

    You people are mean and stupid and wrong! These Post-its are fantastic! I used them to write up my dissertation and now I’m a highly respected neurosurgeon and entrepreneur who owns a successful chain of dive bars. Thanks Post-it!

    9.8 out of 10 stars.

    C’mon, if we could think of ways to use all those junk mail AOL cds, we can think of a use for these shitty post-its. I’ll bet they come in handy to line a birdcage when printed newspapers finally disappear.

    Well, they might work out for some people. What about the Claimer dudes Daryl hung around with for a while in “The Walking Dead”? There’s enough room on them to write “Claimed” so they could just stick them on dead deer or captured victims instead of yelling “Claimed!” and possibly attracting zombies. The fat dude could have just slapped one on Carl’s ass, for example.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries
    that they plainly do not know about. You managed to
    hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having
    side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably
    be back to get more. Thanks
