Found THIS in a tumblr porn blog, of all places  ...

In my earlier engineering career (1964-1984), one of my co-workers had a coffee cup I wanted very much, but I could never find one like it.

I wanted it because of a quote that was on it;  a quote I later learned came from the Peanuts comic strip, by Linus van Pelt (Lucy's kid brother; the one with the security blanket):

   "I love mankind;  it's people I can't stand."

That sentiment seemed to perfectly fit that co-worker, it fit ME at times, and I suspect the subject of that memorial was on the same page with both of us. :-)

Also strange:

Robert Downey Jr. as pin-up girls.

Like, the classic WWII type paintings.

Strange indeed.

From what I've seen of Robert Downey Jr. (and he really CAN play something OTHER than Tony Stark/Ironman - see his Paul Avery in Zodiac), he seems to have a pretty fair sense of humor and probably got a good laugh from the post you linked if anyone brought it to his attention. :-)
