FAIL/WIN Stamps – $17
DOES THE GIANT RED FAIL STAMP WORK ON IDIOTS’ FOREHEADS?
Yes. It does. Our office tests show positive ink results on a variety of failbags’ foreheads, although if the size and shape of the FAILer’s forehead gives you any trouble, might we suggest stamping again, this time even harder?
Oh, but don’t stop at foreheads. Stamp FAIL on that memo you just got from that annoying manager. Car broke down on the way to the most important meeting/interview/date of your life? Stamp FAIL on the hood and that satisfactory “ka-ching” sound of the stamp doing its magic will make everything better.
Don’t forget the WIN stamp. Although sometimes it feels like there are significantly less opportunities to utilize it, it’ll just be that much more epic when you do. A big fat WIN of black ink is a great way to show your child that their fridge art has reached the next level of awesome. Acceptance letters mean that much more with a little extra WIN on them. Maybe use it as a highlighter to spruce up studying for that boring history class.
When necessary, jot in your name and the date, so as to properly document the WINs and the FAILs. Remember: the WIN stamps come in black and the FAIL stamps come in red. They both print in solid, all-caps IMPACT font. These are commercial, office-grade stamps that require no ink pad and are good for hundreds of judgement-filled stampings. Each stamp produces an imprint that is 1.5 inches wide by .6 inches tall. Our advice? Order now and spend the rest of the day measuring foreheads.
