PowerPoint induced coma
In today’s cartoon Dilbert found that his audience had fallen into a PowerPoint induced coma. Many people are wishing that they also had said coma instead of the now trite “Death by PowerPoint.” A coma is slightly funnier but much less final.
His audience look more like they are in a hypnotic trance. Too many bullet point slides, consecutive pie charts, or animated slide transitions are probable causes. Clip art is fine, thank you. After all, we are discussing a cartoon.
Martin Yate wrote a plethora of job search books whose exaggerated titles include the phrase “Knock ‘em Dead.” His reader’s intent really was just to temporarily stun some of the HR department.
