A very good strip indeed. One of the best.

It's marketing at its purest.

I'm taking notes for the big project meeting next week...

Beautiful last line.

Uh, not to denigrate the rest of the comic.

Is your client the neighborhood hobo?

Excellent, as per usual. Sounded pretty familiar too...

I'm sorely tempted to add "I dissemble using erudite misdirection" to the signature on my work e-mail. Great comic.

LOL "I dissemble using erudite misdirection" LMAO that's awesome!

Humorous, but I feel bad for you if it's a true story.

Hahaha, I love it! Good way to start a Monday morning.

He should offer to take the client to the Gentleman's Club again. Just to see the smoking jacket and Col. Sanders.

The client's last words are brilliant

For some time now, I've noticed that the third panel in these strips is often the most funny, and for me, this one is no exception!
"For you I dissemble using erudite misdirection." LOL! I long for the day when I can use that line myself... (How pathetic is that?)

Isn't this a repost? One of my favorites too.

Good afternoon!

Any ressemblance to reality is purely corporative! :P

March 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

Haha, i love it!

Funny! "Lying through enhanced vocabulary". Seems like the people who have made no progress should be talking to the client.

March 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKris L

Someone else got the last word?! Preposterous!

March 23, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteranon

This reminds me of my office, oh wait....

That is one _truculent_ looking client. And no wonder.

I spent my entire working life in the civil service (VA hospital), and long had the
impression that private sector workplaces were zones of intense productivity,
where the weak and slow were weeded out and the pursuit of profit drove
everyone on as if Dagny Taggart were behind them with a whip.

Between this strip and my husband's stories of industrial design/contract furniture brokerage,
I have been disabused of this notion. Now I'm amazed that anything, anywhere, gets done at all.

Laughed really hard at this one! The NEXT two didn't amuse me so much, I must admit.

You started working less to accomplish nothing? All I need to accomplish nothing is this website.
