Wall Street

We're tired of boring, single-themed photo tumblr blogs that are all attempting to be the next big thing to hit the web, so we're calling them out in this week-long series called "Tumblr Weak." Check the site for a new one every day at 6p EST.

BLOG: Sad Guys on Trading Floors aka sadguysontradingfloors.tumblr.com/

ESTABLISHED: October 2008

# OF POSTS: 444

PURPOSE: Re-post pictures of unhappy Wall Street traders that you already see every day in newspapers and online. America should get a humorous post-modern look at the recession, putting a positive spin on our economic woes.

DOES IT SERVE ITS PURPOSE?: In October, Sad Guys had a strong 237 posts. In March: 30. In August: 4. I'm no stock broker, but Sad Guys on Trading Floors is showing an ironic trend. As the recession continues, Sad Guys provides less and less laughter, thus accelerating the very frowns they sought to undo.

WEAKNESS LEVEL: On a scale of 1-10, Sad Guys gets a 6. Your Tumblr consists of ripped-off Associated Press photos — hundreds of which come out each day, and most of which meet your only criteria. If you've given up on your blog then so have we.

Find some happy people on trading floors. Then I'll be impressed. Sad Guys on Trading Floors, your Tumblr is WEAK!
