    Brilliant cartoons, and highly appreciated especially (if you click on the link) the ones about the inadequate negotiator and the recently deceased patent attorney.

    Did you hear the one …

    So this prep and pros attorney walks up to Ms. Innovation and plants a kiss on her cheek.

    Ms. Innovation jerks away and slaps the attorney, exclaiming, “what do you think you’re doing?!”

    Attorney tries to explain, “Gosh, I’m so sorry, you looked eligible to me!”

    The perturbed Ms. Innovation explains, “Of course I’m not eligible, isn’t it obvious that I belong to the Scotus?”
