Regular readers of Small Business Trends know I love a good graph cartoon. There’s almost no end of fun things you can do with the shape of a graph, which is actually where the idea for this cartoon came from.
I was talking with my wife about putting together a book of graph themed cartoons (graph-ic novel?) and I commented that the downward trending graphs are by far the most fun. And then the idea for what would make a bad looking graph fun for the characters in a cartoon hit me and this cartoon was born.
It’s one of the more meta routes to a cartoon I’ve had, but I’m always just thankful that ideas keep coming, no matter where they come from.
I like the premise! If the words were more optimistic, I think it would be funnier and pack more of a punch. Like put the “But” at the beginning, as if the guy was trying to spin it into something positive. “OK, yes… But, if we had a sled this could be fun!” The “but” at the end was kind of depressing. I guess yours more realistic, but hell, its a cartoon! 🙂
