They’ll Have to Scramble to Find a Replacement

OK, this is a fairly standard gag. You take a familiar phrase, illustrate it literally instead of figuratively, and you’re good. Except that eggs are terrible to draw.

Seriously, try drawing one now. It’s not a circle, it’s not an oval, it’s this sort of oblong teardrop but not quite.

You know when it’s right, but it might take you 2 or 3 or 12 times to get that line to curve juuuuust right.

I guess that’s what you get when the gag comes easy.

  1. I love the use of the eggs. It makes it more fun even though the message is serious when it comes to the business world.
