If you think you have it hard, trying talking to a mannequin. (Please don't actually.)

They are constantly being objectified, publicly undressed, and stuck wearing the same ensemble in the same position for weeks on end. Weeks, people.

But finally, thanks to the useless wonders of the Internet, their tiny plastic voices are being heard.

Mannequin Depressed is the new Tumblr where plastic statues everywhere can make their feelings known.

From the daily trials and tribulations of storefront life, to the permanently eye-opening revelations, Mannequin Depressed gives internet users an intimate look into inanimate life (think Toy Story with more vanity and less Potato Head).

Mannequin Depressed will no doubt suck as much productivity out of your days as Tumblrs like Sad Etsy Boyfriends, Terrible Real Estate, and Perez Hamilton. But as least you can always take solace in the fact that while you may have spent entirely too much time looking at it, someone else wasted even more time putting it together.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
