Finding Humor In Harmonization

Jim Prevor’s Perishable Pundit, February 15, 2012

A hat tip to Robert Stovicek, PhD, President of Primus Labs, for sending along the following wry cartoon from xkcd, A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language.



We have to confess that though we understand and appreciate the desire of growers and packers to see one standard and one audit, we suspect that differences of opinion as to the science and marketing considerations all are unlikely to lead to one harmonized standard.

This cartoon obviously points to the fact that the experience of creating standards isn’t easy in many industries. Note the reference to A/C chargers, etc.
