Bearman Cartoon: Bar-Be-Q the Organist
Its seems in the small Town of Reading, Ohio (near Cincinnati), Kenny Tessel was having trouble drawing in patrons to his barbecue restaurant (KT’s Barbecue). So he bought a busty mannequin online, named her Bar-Be (Q being her last name), put her in a baseball hat and bikini top and stuck her on the sidewalk in front of his place with a sign.
All of the sudden people were coming in for tasty ribs that hadn’t stopped before. In fact according to Kenny business was up 30%. More on the story here and here. Of course his business went up even more once a couple residents complained and the story has taken on national attention.
So I thought maybe there are other businesses that could use a jolt of new customers using this tactic and came up with my latest editorial cartoon.
