Wheeling and Dealing in the Office

Unleashing Bold Initiatives

Like any entertainment, cartoons have their own tropes to be revisited and reinterpreted. Psychiatry couches, sales graphs, desert islands, etc…

One of my personal favorites is the In/Out basket. There’s lots of room to play there.

Maybe you remove a basket, maybe you add some more. How much paper is in each and why? Maybe one basket is inside other. For such a simple idea, there’s a world of possibility.

So when one day I saw a local car dealer on TV yelling “We’re wheelin’ and dealin’!” the old In/Out baskets popped into my head for the above cartoon.

    I want to illustrate my WorkFlow page with your cartoon. What is the URL for the cartoon?
