The Wall Street Journal, February 8, 1982

wsj020882.JPG As I mentioned before, there was a short period of time when The Wall Street Journal was reproducing cartoons very poorly and a lot of drawing detail was being lost. This is one of those cartoons. That's a Universal Product Code (UPC) emblem on the gentleman's party tag.

(Update, posted October 22, 2016) I just discovered the original of this cartoon -- this is the way it should have looked in print:

National Business Employment Weekly, Spring 1986


Caption: "I like this dedication on your resume: To my parents, without whom none of this would have been possible."

Rotarian, March 1982


Caption: "Sorry, Fenster, but we've discovered that you were hired because of a computer error."
