In Business, Sometimes You Have to Grab Their Attention, So…

Company Tanking Business Cartoon

My family and I go to the zoo. We have a yearly membership at our local zoo, we visit them on vacations and my wife the teacher takes her classes on field trips there often.

Many of them have some sort of water animal show, and there are always those ‘splash zones’ where some people sit to get drenched. (Not my thing.)

One day I was thinking about that warning they broadcast — “A warning to our audience members in the first few rows, you WILL get wet!” — and this cartoon popped into my head.

It’s kind of an odd confluence, but it actually made me laugh out loud when I thought of it, and that doesn’t happen too often.
