Reviewing Pros and Cons: Ready for a Breather?

pros and cons cartoon

I was trying to come up with a pros/cons cartoon for about a good week and it just wasn’t coming. I’d written out various lists of possible pros and cons and I knew I was close, but it just wasn’t quite there.

Then for some reason I jotted down “You’re Stupid!” as one of the cons and I was off and running. Eventually all of the original pros and cons got replaced with what you see here and the caption sort of ended up writing itself.

Looking back it’s surprising how much this cartoon was hiding in plain sight; I just needed that one little outburst to get things going.
