To the Stick Figure With the Bright Idea,

That—™s what your magnifying glass represents, right? The —œaha— moment or epiphany that a brand supposedly solves? Or maybe it—™s a mirror?? Either way—”I—™m sorry to say that you are interchangeable.

To utilize you alongside an original, brilliant idea is to throw oneself in the stockpile of startups. You don—™t even have a neck!

This style of art is the kind best left to game pieces or stickers given to kids after their first dentist appointment.

Your illusion of ingenuity will not soon be forgotten—”but should no longer appear in any presentations dated past 1989.
