Saw this type of thread on another site I frequent and it gave me a smile so lets see what you've got! The idea is to post the best pics you have of failures, either your own or ones you've found whilst trawling the t'internet.

Here are a few to get you started:

i can sympathise with the recipient of that last email! i have a database of all my cd's online (handy for insurance and if i see a cd that i can't remember if i have i can check on the mobile Wink). database includes cover art and one month i nearly reached my bandwith limit which was shcking to be honest! looked through the stats and saw loads of people were leeching my images for their websites!!!

google images picked them up and was happily letting people leach them! doh!! stupid me, i forgot to disallow remote hosting! that changed pretty quick and also made sure google etc didn't spider the folder where the images were. i also renamed the folder so old links would become inactive. i had loads of emails like that one asking why i had moved them and can i give them the new link!!

I got most of them, but can you guess how long it took me to get the first one? I studied it and studied it, for ages until I spotted it. Maybe in future we should have an arrow pointing at "it"s? (for those of us who have passed 68 1/2)

Could you make that 65 1/2, please? That one took me ages too.

I'm sorry, I must be so stupid but I have been staring at that picture since it was posted and I STILL don't get it!! Embarassed

Please can someone explain the joke to me, although I understand that this may then render it not a joke!

Regards,

Bo Peep.

What type of laptop is in the picture? - or more importantly is it running Microsoft OS or something else? - Mike

I don't believe it...

Make the ageism failings rule apply to 35 year olds too then... as I just goofed.

I spotted the first one straight away yesterday when I saw this thread - or so I thought:

"Business Leadership and Digital Innovation for Future Graduated"

I thought it was a spelling mistake, whereby it should have been "GRADUATEs" - and hence the joke being Leadership that couldn't even spell correctly.

Oh groan, what a fool am I.

Whoops.

That's what I thought it was too, until I took a closer look and noticed the laptop.

I'm a Mac user too, so I should have spotted that one a mile off - DOH Embarassed

Remember, you read it in my post FIRST - some of us over 25 1/2 need an arrow and a circle.

This failure picture thread has gone completely base over apex innit? Not a single nother one posted so far! Anyway, my favourite is the jackhammers one.

Could we have a special time allowance for those of us (back to over 68 1/2) who are thick (and outside several Stellas by now)?
