La guerre des Post-Its

This morning, as I was drinking my coffee before heading off to work, I stumbled upon an article on about Post-It wars raging in Paris.  Curious, I clicked on the link to read the article and discovered a surprisingly fun battle happening in some of Paris' biggest companies in La Defense and Issy-les-Moulineaux:  apparently employees are having post-it wars.  They are making huge designs out of post-its on their companies windows so everyone can see, everything from cartoon characters to messages to rocket ships.  The largest one is 7 stories tall using thousands of post-its!  And the companies are generally in favor of this war, seeing it as a good team building exercise (not to mention the Post-It company is certainly enjoying it!).  To read more about it, click this link, or to view photos of the different images, click here.

So, on my way to work this morning at les Sablons, I looked up at the building of the company I teach in, and was very surprised, only an hour after reading the CNN article, to find this, staring back at me:
sorry the photo is so bad, it was on my cell phone, but click to enlarge

Yoda in Post-Its saying "may the Post-Its be with you" next to it!

Who knew the French worker bees could have so much fun!  Do you know anyone participating in the Post-It war????

  1. You see them all over downtown Lille too. I saw them a few months ago and then by random my brother sent me a link to the blog. It's pretty neat!
