Demotivational poster (demotivator, demotivating poster, demotivating picture, demotivational picture) is an image that consists of a picture in a black frame and a caption. Demotivator pictures are a good source of humour on the internet. They are the opposite of motivational posters and are designed to discourage and demotivate. They often contain pessimistic or mocking captions. A demotivator consists of a picture usually of comedy value being situated as a central point in an image. The central image also has a thick black border around it usually making up around 20 to 40 percent of the picture size. Below the central image there is an amusing text caption related to the image in the middle of the demotivator written in a bold white font. The caption is often does not depict the true nature of what is going on in the picture giving a humorously misleading appearance to the picture.
