The guys rowing on a ship cartoon has been around a long long time. There\u2019s plenty of funny takes on it, but what I find interesting is how often it focuses on business. Sometimes the take is about bad managers or bosses, sometimes it's about co-workers, and sometimes it\u2019s about optimism despite the circumstances. Before this cartoon I don\u2019t think I\u2019d ever tried out this trope (it\u2019s a pain to draw), but I was determined to find some new business-themed take on it. Sure, it\u2019s well-traveled territory, but I\u2019m a smart guy. Surely I'd figure out some new office or management or HR angle. Then I hit upon the triangle and called it a day.
