In an attempt to relieve a troubled mind, Marshall Mcluhan (media theorist) has created a collection of interesting playing cards that each feature a different message.

The "Distant Early Warning" cards are meant to stimulate the mind or make you chuckle under your breath; in any case, they’re a bright and quirky creation. The cards feature satirical statements such as, "High rise and mini skirts…The end is in sight; i.e., instant slums." and "The chicken was the eggs idea for getting more eggs."

Check out the gallery and Mcluhan’s Flickr for more of the "Distant Early Warning" playing cards.
