When I create custom cartoons for clients, I always give them three or four jokes from which to choose.
I used to play this little game with myself, predicting which joke they’d pick. But I’ve been proven wrong so many times that now I just wait and see what happens.
That doesn’t mean I still don’t have favorites. And sometimes I’m hoping certain ideas don’t get picked because I’d like to keep them for myself.
This cartoon is one of those.
I had a client who needed a cartoon on passing a family business on to a relative and this was one of the jokes I floated, but secretly I hoped they’d reject.
Thankfully, it didn’t click with them and it’s one of my recent favorites.
