Heart Monitor Sales: Makes Sense

sales cartoon

You never know when inspiration is going to strike, but you’d better be ready to wrestle it to the ground when it does.

My wife and I were watching some TV and there was that classic close-up on the heart monitor. The beeping, the jagged line, we’ve all seen it a hundred times.

But this time, I saw it and it looked like a sales graph to me. I made a joke to my wife about how this character’s heartbeat sales were all over the place and she laughed, so I knew I had something.

A few days later this cartoon came out and, although I had to draw that graph five or six times to get it just right, it reminded me that, if you’re looking, there are jokes just about everywhere.
