@Douglas - it's very sad that so many commenters can relate this cartoon to true life situations!

My response to this cartoon is a caption which involves a tech-company general manager saying something like:

"Who cares about the discarded microprocessors, PCB boards, and system-racks. I want to know who took the finger-cots!"

True, this line would probably seem unfunny, and perhaps a bit perplexing, to most. But, it's actually based upon a long ( ... very long... ),compelling, and true-to-life story... of corporate mismanagement, which was tainted with just a bit of malicious perversity, at a company... where I used to work. 

To protect the innocent ( ... and, to paraphrase a line from an old Peter Sellers movie, I'd like both of them to stand up and take a bow... ) I will not mention the name of that company. But I will say that working there was a bit like working in a hell. A true "Inferno".

And, for me, this caption is absolutely hilarious!

In a sad and ironic sort of way.
