I don’t know if I’ve talked about it here before, but I was a music major in college. I played trombone and wasn’t too bad if I say so myself.
But I don’t really do very many music cartoons. I don’t know why, but I don’t seem to.
But one day while racking my brain for a new take on the sales graph, it occurred to me that it looked like a vibraphone. But I didn’t think anyone would recognize that, so I tried out marimba, glockenspiel, chimes, and finally settled on the xylophone.
Everyone knows the xylophone. I think.
