This one was reprinted in Reader's Digest.

Insurance Sales, July 1989


Insurance Sales magazine, and a sister publication in the insurance field, Rough Notes magazine, were relatively low-paying markets, but I could count on them to buy many of my business-related gags after they had been rejected by all the other publications. Both of them printed many cartoons of mine. Insurance Sales folded years ago, and I'm not sure if Rough Notes is still around.
