I realize that this is pretty stupid â€“ but itâ€™s Monday! I enjoy my work, but still need some humor to kick off the week. Oh, and I really want to do this to mess with some tourists before the summer ends.
I’m slightly embarrassed to have come across ‘Tweets on Tees‘, and to be talking about it [yes, they’re actually tweets from Twitter…on t-shirts…] – but, this one was killin’ me and had to be on AMNP.

I really have no idea how I missed this – and really, I’m kind of embarrassed that I did – but the Metropolis POV blog apparently posted this mocking ‘open letter’ to Dwell Magazine about a month ago – and it’s pretty feckin’ hilarious.
Love the magazine. As a favor, I have rewritten the Table of Contents of your July/August issue:
Cover………….House with Horizontal Wood Slats
Page 43.…….House with Vertical Wood Slats
Page 52………House with Horizontal Wood Slats
Page 58………Ice Cream Makers
Page 66………Pavilion with Horizontal Wood Slats
Page 80………House with Horizontal Wood Slats
Page 88………House with Horizontal Wood Slats
Page 96………House with Vertical Wood Slats
I hope you find this useful.

Ah – so very true. Now, who’s going to write one clowning Metropolis, in return?

I can’t say for sure where I first saw this comic from pintday.org’s Archimatects series, by il Pelicano – but I thought it was pretty amusing, and needed to be on AMNP. If you’re not familiar with the series, be sure to check it out – it’s pretty feckin’ hilarious.
