XKCD Web Comic #1021: Business Plan (described)

A web comic of romance,
sarcasm, math, and language.


Panel One: A stick figure wearing a beret stands on a beach, looking out at the water. The background is a fairly detailed pencil sketch of water and sand and grass instead of the usual plain white.

Panel Two: The stick figure leaves. Background is plain white.

Panel Three: The stick returns, carrying a small easel, a large jar, and a sack marked “BREAD.”

Panel Four: The stick figure is spreading out bread crumbs from the sack on the ground.

Panel Five: The stick figure is setting up the small easel.

Panel Six: The stick figure leaves.

Panel Seven: This panel is larger than the other six put together and is full of detail again. Waves crash on the sandy beach. A stick figure couple, one with long hair and one with none, are holding hands on the beach and staring at the easel. The one with no hair has his free hand up to his head in a questioning manner. Four seagulls are standing around the easel, eating the breadcrumbs. The jar is next to the easel with a dollar sign on it. The sign on the easel reads: Gulls For Sale.

Hover text: The investor elevator pitch is “Wheeeeeeee! Elevators are fun!”

Panel Seven:
