Comical Processing: You Write The Cartoon Caption Winner July 25, 2010

July 24, 2010
Congratulations to Doug Blakeley of Stoughton, Mass., for submitting the winning caption to the Comical Processing cartoon. A new cartoon has been posted.
"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.

HR has informed me of some inappropriate use of X-ray vision
during office meetings.
