Musical Lean Memes; “Choose Lean” & “Frankie Says Relax”

Lean improvement work can be pretty intense and stressful. So, it's important to take some time for some laughs (see my past collection and links at www.leancomedy.com).

It's been a while since I've shared anything from my LeanMemes.com site, but my friend and guest blogger Brian Buck has contributed some funny stuff recently in a musical theme.

Wake Me Up, Before you Flow Flow:

Brian's meme inspired me to create a “CHOOSE LEAN” parody shirt that you can buy from Zazzle.com  (or a version that also has the LeanBlog logo on the back).

Or, there's the “CHOOSE LEAN” coffee mug that makes the coffee flow flow.

Ah, and our new one is based on “Frankie Goes to Hollywood” and their famous “Frankie Say Relax” shirts (hat tip to Martin Burns for the idea):

The “FRANKIE SAY KAIZEN” t-shirt  and mug:

#Lean Certification: Nevermind (The Sequel)  – Nirvana
