‘Can we get that team that built Rome in a day?’ is just one of the E-Cards designed to politely let your boss know that the project you’ve been working on, well, it’s ‘effed’. I’m all about metaphors, and what better way to give the disaster update that’s way too awkward to give in person than to send an e-card saying, ‘How did I get in this creek? And who has my paddle?.

Then just run away really fast and not open your laptop until the next day. What’s even better, for those of us who work in the creative world where logos and presentation matter, these retro E-Cards look absolutely sensational. What better way to say ‘The project is ‘effed’, and if I’m going to get fired I’m going to make it as beautiful as possible!’
