Business Graphs: Details and Emotions

Unleashing Bold Initiatives

Often when I need a quick business cartoon I get my brain jumpstarted with the phrase, “As this graph clearly shows…”

Sometimes it leads to an oddly shaped graph to have fun with, sometimes it’s the explanation of the data that gets you to the joke, but in this case it’s the oddly circular nature of what’s happening that made me laugh.

Apparently the presenter, in addition to the numbers she’s presenting, is graphing in real time her reaction to those numbers. Now that’s data!
