Questions, questions, questions. That's about all I have to offer on
Like, what is this book all about? It is a series of cartoons. Well,
I *think* it's a series. The characters remain the same throughout.
There are two groups of "old style" corporate executives who are
pretty incompetent. Then there are the employees who work for the
executives, said employees not demonstrating any particular skill.
The employees seem to leave and start up small businesses. Sometimes
they get lucky, and sometimes they do dumb things. Sometimes there
appears to be a plot, but any thread seems to disappear within a few
Occasionally other characters show up. Generally they have some kind
of idea for a business.
Is this supposed to be about starting your own business? If so, it
doesn't have any real advice to relay.
Is this supposed to be funny? That's rather questionable.
If there is some great significance in the fact that all the "peons"
in the book are called "pions" I missed it. There is no other
reference to subatomic particles.

Never forget the power of silence, that massively disconcerting
pause which goes on and on and may at last induce an opponent to
babble and backtrack nervously. - Lance Morrow
