To Act Like A Big Business

I actually heard this in a company meeting once and I nearly shit my pants trying to stifle a laugh.

I realize that the proportions are a little off in this one. Steve is actually supposed to be quite tall. But I kinda screwed that bit up. So no, no one cut off his legs at the knees, I just fucked up the art.

    I’m loving this comic. You mean no one has cut off his legs at the knees…yet.

    And I think I might have heard something similar to that ‘Successful Company’ line before in a meeting, too.

    It’s not bad art, that’s just how everyone else sees him — small and unimpressive.

    “Acting like a big successful company means following in someone else’s footsteps. Following in someone else’s footsteps means being behind the curve. Being behind the curve means being too late to genuinely compete with other big successful companies.”

    I actually got the boss of the last company I worked for to drop the attendance code with that schpiel. It’s all in how you spin things to these idiots.
