Aftermath of a “knock your socks off” sales presentation

Today’s F Minus cartoon showed us how that cliche would look. Tony Carrillo made me think sweaty bare feet might not smell very pleasant. When you reconsider, book titles including “knock your socks off” don’t seem as desirable.

That isn’t the only cliche that looked worse when illustrated. Last December one of Tom Fishburne’s cartoons showed Death by Powerpoint with chalk outlines where the bodies fell onto the conference table.

The image of bare male feet came from Wikimedia Commons. (I changed the background color).
