"Comical Processing" features drawings by award-winning cartoonist Jerry King. It’s our way of letting you take a break from all the serious stuff you deal with at work — by coming up with appropriate light-hearted captions.
This has almost as many twists and turns, ins and outs, ups and downs as
Charlie Sheen's rehab record.
