54: Fridge Magnates

April 2, 2011

Here’s a quick project for a last minute update.

Refrigerator Magnates.

I just stuck some magnets to the back of some pictures of billionaires/millionaires. It was a pretty easy project, but I still like how it turned out.

Below are some close-ups, so you can see who they are:

Ford, Gates, Slim, Trump

I decided to go with famous names instead of just the 8 richest people, with the possible exception of Carlos Slim. If you don’t know him, he is currently the wealthiest man in the world, by quite a wide margin too.

Hearst, Murdoch, Walton, Rockerfeller

I’d like to thank Google Image Search for providing high-quality photos that are easily stolen and reused.

If you’d like to make your own, just print them out, stick them to foam-core board, and glue little magnets on the back.

And, you’re done. The hardest part is keeping the magnets separate.

If you ask me, this perfectly illustrates the imbalance in the wealthy vs the poor. They have billions of dollars, and I have a beige-avocado refrigerator. There is no justice in this world.

Awww, but they sure look cute up there.

    Moral of the story? Don’t become filthy rich unless you want to turn into a fridge magnet.
