Addiction To Technology

Has technology gone too far? Look at these satirical illustrations and you’ll be asking yourself just that. Art has long been a way of documenting the present and commenting on social issues, something that today’s artists continue to do through their thought provoking illustrations that comment on technology and the impact that it’s having on our society.

As a world that is becoming increasingly reliant on technology, how true do you think these illustrations are and which one sends the strongest message? Here are 7 satirical illustrations that show how we’ve become addicted to technology.

We hold onto almost everything just in case we might need them in some hypothetical future that doesn’t actually exist. We believe that things represent memories. But memories aren’t in things, they are part of us and our thoughts. So prioritize experience over possessions.

Funny 404 Messages

The 404 or “Not Found” error message is a World Wide Web standard response code. It is generated by the server when it cannot find what is requested by the client. We all hate clicking on a link to open up a page, but instead of the website that we are hoping for, a 404 message appears and ruins our day. Thankfully, the owners of the following sites have a sense of humor and make sure their website’s 404 message doesn’t make us want to throw our computer over the wall.

The Sign

Chuck bought a donkey from a farmer for $100.00. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

The next day the farmer drove up and said, “Sorry, son, but I have some bad news; the donkey died.”

Chuck replied, “Well, that’s fine, just give me my money back.”

The farmer said, “Sorry, can’t do that. I spent it already.”

Chuck said, “OK, then just bring me the dead donkey.”

The farmer asked, “What are you going to do with him?”

Chuck said, “I’m going to raffle him off.”

The farmer said, “You can’t raffle off a dead donkey!”

Chuck said, “Sure I can, watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.”

A month later, the farmer ran into Chuck. “What happened with the dead donkey?”

Chuck said, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at $2 each and made a profit of $898.00.”

The farmer asked, “Didn’t anyone complain?”

Chuck said, “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his $2 back.”

Smile of a Donkey

A donkey was rescued when rising floodwaters in Ireland took everyone by surprise. The message was put up earlier in social media after the owner realized the donkey was missing. Mike Fleming quickly responded and was there to help out with his boat. Mike and a couple of others went out on the boat to search for the donkey. Once they found the donkey, they put a floatation device around his neck, carefully reeling him in until they reached the safety of dry land.

As you can see from the photos, from the moment that the donkey realized he was back on dry land again and safe from the water, he started to smile.
