out of commission

Hi folks,

Sorry no posts for a while. I had to take some sick leave, and as a result I wasn't immersed in cartoon fodder. I've returned to work, so hopefully my cynicism will reestablish itself. As always, suggestions are welcome.

What's my line?

An Ersatz Physics Contest!
Come up with the best label for these axes. Don't be shy - I've only told about 10 people about this blog, so I'm not expecting a lot of entries.
Winner gets mentioned in the acknowledgments section of my next refereed publication.

This is a comic suggested by a friend - he noticed that if a speaker has a really strong accent, it's easier to understand the talk if you sit where you can see the speaker's face and get a few extra clues.
