One Way to Deal With Business Competition

competitor business cartoon

There are a lot of things that tickle me about this cartoon (the cave drawing as strategy, the neanderthal in a meeting, the general nonplussed air of the other workers) but the word “COMPaTiShUN” makes me a little giddy.

It took way longer than I’d like to admit to get the combination of poor spelling and upper/lowercase confusion right.

But, hey – for a caveman…that’s really quite good.
