You've seen them before, at the doctor's office waiting room or maybe physical therapy, motivational posters promoting Preserverance or Enthusiasm or some other one-word pick-me-up with a witty one-liner underneath that's supposed to make you want to just deadlift the coffee table and ask out the receptionist right there.

You haven't, however, yet seen what a motivation poster would look like for your typical, cunning villain. Knowing full well they probably won't get the girl like the heroes do, they've gotta get the motivation to wear those ridiculous costumes from somewhere, and in this week's Comedy Goldmine, Forums Goon dr_vonkill asked the forums to help figure out exactly where that motivation would be coming from for any given villain.
