Day 8 Cartoon [The Twelve Days of Christmas in June Giveaway]

The caption contest today is for a free copy of Dr. Explain. (Note: Originally, today’s scheduled prize was Screensteps rather than Dr. Explain, but I had to switch prizes around due to the fact that a previous winner already had Dr. Explain.) I hope you’re not getting tired of captions. We still have four more days.

Cartoon by Ben Minson. For full details about the giveaway, see this post.

I'm a technical writer working for the 41st Parameter in San Jose, California. I'm primarily interested in topics related to technical writing, such as visual communication (video tutorials, illustrations), findability (organization, information architecture), API documentation (code examples, programming), and web publishing (web platforms, interactivity) -- pretty much everything related to technical writing. If you're trying to keep up to date about the field of technical communication, subscribe to my blog either by RSS, email, or another method. To learn more about me, see my About page. You can also contact me if you have questions.

    Oh man, you shoulda sen his face. I got him good.”
