The 2nd Annual Consulting Firm Caption Contest! (Join in)

Whether you’re a long-time reader or you’ve recently started perusing these articles, you’ve probably grumbled at least once…

“How can someone who combines lackluster drawing skills with groanworthy puns build such a successful consulting practice? Sheesh, that illustration doesn’t even help!”

Well, now’s your chance to show off your wit, charm, humor, punniness, knowledge of obscure chocolate trivia and all-around consulting awesomeness.

Last year while I was on vacation, I posted an illustration and asked readers to pen the caption. That led to a couple dozen excellent entries.

I bet this year while I’m on vacation you can do even better.

Add some text to the drawing below. What (if anything) are the characters saying? Does the illustration have a title? Maybe it’s about consulting… but then again, maybe not. Let me (and your fellow readers) know in the comments below.

If you didn’t contribute a caption last year, definitely write something in this year’s contest. It doesn’t have to be the funniest. Just give it a go.

      It’s not what it looks like. Always ask, what’s going on. 😀

        Exactly, Tomaž. That would be a good caption.

    I’m Jane, from Amazon. I heard you speak at that conference last year. We’ve decided to give your firm a contract to solve our supply chain constraints.
