The Wall Street Journal, October 30, 1974

This is another cartoon that I completely lost track of until I found it in a search through old Wall Street Journals at the library. Good to see it again, after all these years.

I had re-drawn the gag, though, and with a slightly different caption, it appeared in Selling Power magazine in 1991.






Stock Market, December 1982

My caption was "Grab any companies lately?". I guess in Stock Market Magazine's haste to get this cartoon into print (they didn't even bother to type-set the caption as they usually did), somebody decided to change "companies" to "company". That just doesn't sound right to me. Should be either "Grab a company lately?" or my original "Grab any companies lately?", but certainly not the way they botched it up.
