Sum up your business in one funny cartoon

cartoon by Hugh Macleod commissioned by Microsoft on the back of a busines card

Sometimes less is more, oh wise one. It takes more work to express a business idea in a few little words than a whole page. (Just think of all those home pages stuffed with more copy than sense.)

This cartoonist, Hugh Macleod, was hired by Microsoft to draw cartoons like this one on the back of business cards.

He writes on his blog, GapingVoid, that Microsoft is awash with both [A] complicated products and [B] complicated ideas, so they often use his cartoons internally to communicate them in a "more, shall we say, digestible form."

What cartoon would you put on the back of your card?

Thanks to Decker Marketing for drawing my attention to Macleod.
