At the risk of sounding cynical, there are more damning lessons that this strip could have imparted about how our economy really works; more damning than “negative advertising is an effective way to drive your competitors out of business,” that is. For example, Mamet the Dog could have been forced to borrow $20 to buy lemons for his lemonade stand, only to realize that it was not enough to buy quality produce from a grocery store. The end result? Probably a $3 glass of lemonade made from shriveled lemons bought out of the back of a truck and sweetened with ungodly amounts of sugar in an effort to attract customers. And even that probably wouldn’t have brought in enough money to pay back the initial investor.
