I’m not sure of the original source but I found it on Reddit in a post titled, “Mondays.” Beyond a representation of the Monday blues I think there’s something greater here. Note that the false smiles required money to obtain.

Regardless of whether this picture is a critique on a materialistic society or anything else, I think it’s interesting.
