Here Comes the Pain Point. . .Ouch

pain point cartoon

I don’t know when the term “pain point” entered our communal phrasebook, but it’s a term that’s just positively made for a cartoonist to have fun with.

You could have a doctor pointing at a graph in a meeting saying, “Does it hurt when I point here?”

You could have a company mistakenly install Pain Point instead of PowerPoint.

You could, if it’s an election year, do something with a cam-pain point.

Or you could have a fun afternoon drawing people wincing and writhing, like I did for this cartoon.
