Testers meeting at the bar

Testing is a thankless job. The tester's job is to tell a developer or a business analyst that "their baby is ugly" and it is difficult to stay friends after that.

If you try to be polite and ignore the ugly baby, it is just a matter of time until the customer faces you with the same conclusion or even worse when he states that ALL your babies are ugly.

  2. Minor typo: Your text "tell a developer of a business analyst" should probably read "tell a developer or a business analyst". This is what happens when you write a great comic for software testing: you get a bunch of software testers to read it, and then we reflexively look for bugs. :)

  4. Just found you doing a Google search and thought your cartoons are hilarious! Would you mind if I re-posted some of them on our blog?
    Also, I thought you might like our "Software Bro Code Blog." As you might have guessed it, it's a funny spin on the software "code of ethics" between software teams. http://lighthousetechnologies.com/blog/software-bro-code
