Always Read The Fine Print

Small Business Cartoon: Ideas Lighting Up

Every year around Valentine’s Day comes news about the new phrase being printed on those little candy hearts. I think this year I’ve seen “Tweet Me” added to the repertoire.

There’s a lot of material there to be sure, but the problem is the humor quickly becomes dated. So with the above cartoon I decided to take the classic “Be Mine” and update it with some contract language.

It’s a good bet that fine print won’t be going out of style any time soon.

  1. Mark, I laughed out loud when I read this one, I think it’s hysterical! Particularly, the charming (yet worrisome looking) smile on the mans face – that makes it πŸ™‚

  2. Hahaha, there’s always a catch isn’t there!? Very cute.
