Name that cartoon caption!

It’s time again for another cartoon caption contest on Post University’s blog! This time, our inspiration for the contest comes from our recent podcast interview with Dan Pink, which has gotten a lot of listens.

In our interview, we discussed Dan’s best-selling new book, “To Sell is Human,” which covers why every one of us is a salesperson, whether you fill a traditional sales position or not. Selling permeates many aspects of our lives — from trying to sell our skills in a job interview, to winning new business, to persuading our kids to do their homework!

To help highlight why being a better salesperson is important, we are launching a cartoon caption contest inspired by Dan’s book and our interview with him. The always-trusty Dave Blazek, who draws the Ex Post Facto cartoon series for our blog, has created a comic that pokes fun at learning how to be a better salesperson. Your mission is to devise the funniest punch line you can think of. In fact, we want you to sell our judges on why your caption is the best!

Here’s the cartoon.

Cartoon of a businessman pointing to a chart with squiggly lines coming out of it

What’s going on here? Who’s saying — or thinking — what? What the heck is going on with that chart??

We’ll pick one winner from the entrants, who will receive:

  • A copy of “To Sell is Human” by Dan Pink
  • A t-shirt printed with the cartoon and the winning caption
  • An original 8.5″ x 11″ colored print of the cartoon with the winning caption, autographed by Dave Blazek, and able to be framed
  • Bragging rights

Submit your caption in the form below along with your email address so we can contact you if you win. The deadline to enter is Wednesday, May 22 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. Feel free to share this with family and friends. Good luck!
