Charts and Graphs Have a Way of Just Pointing Out the Obvious


After all the sales graph cartoons I’ve done over the years, it never fails to amaze me that there’s still new material to mine there.

I actually wrote this while looking at another sales graph cartoon and I noticed that the line and arrow were pointing right at someone in the meeting; almost blaming them for the downturn.

As many as I’ve done, I’m beginning to think that as long as there are sales graphs, I’m gonna be finding ways to make fun of them.
