What is your computer/business cartoon? (specifically, not a series)

Mine is the "and then a miracle happens" one. Although one of the Dilbert cartoons is up there too.

The last panel of this strip can stand on its own.

Great thread....

I have spent 30 minutes looking for a GIF of this (which I do every 6 months or so).... I can't find it online, but here is the gist. I dearly wish I could find it online. I have it on paper but am nervous of the copyright issues of hosting it.

From Calvin & Hobbes...

Hobbes pushing Calvin in a small wagon down a steep, rocky hill.

Calvin: It's true Hobbes, ignorance is bliss!
Once you know things you start seeing problems everywhere...
and once you see problems you feel like you ought to try to fix them...
and fixing problems always seems to require personal change...
and change means doing things that aren't fun! I say phooey to that!

Ultimately they both crash over a cliff, with Hobbes lamenting that he can't handle so much bliss. In a disheveled heap, Calvin raises a hand in warning and says:

Careful, we don't want to learn anything from this!

I love Dilbert, but this one is sublime for IT.

My favorite all-time Dilbert, which I can't find online:

Pointy-haired boss: Every employee will wear a button that says "I'm empowered"

Asok: I don't want to

Boss: You have to

Wally: That was everything you need to know about life in one package

He. He. He. I have to print some of these out and put them on my cube wall.

Peter: We saw that one on someone's door at work and were thinking about where to find an electronic copy since colors don't photocopy. And now here it is!

The tire swing/tree post is awesome!

Is there a place I can link my blog to it... is there a permalink for a specific post on here? or is it on the web?

It seems wrong to save it and then upload it to my blog.

thanks,
Mike
