I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got, Part V

Here's another gem from the Skymall catalogue (now online for your shopping pleasure):

Sisyphus desk art screengrab

As far as I can tell, this is supposed to be a motivational desk accessory. It's sold by the same company that makes the posters that brandish words like "teamwork" and "pride" across pictures of eagles and rowers and such.

There's one problem with this nice little piece of desk art. It depicts Sisyphus, the mythological Greek king who must push a boulder up a hill, and watch it fall back down, over and over again for all eternity.

It that's not the least motivating thought ever, I don't know what is!

Please add this item to my lengthy list of things I do not want.
