Akhenaten’s Boardroom Suggestion August 30, 2015

Akhenaten's idea

I really love this ancient Egypt version of the well-known boardroom suggestion meme! You need to know that meme, as well as the basics about Amenhotep IV, better known as the pharaoh Akhenaten.

Historians and scholars have long wondered whether there was any influence from Akhenaten’s monotheism upon the emergence of ancient Israel’s. I’m not sure how to work an answer to that into the meme cartoon, however…

    Overheard in boardroom:

    Akhenaten:
    “When the Hebrews send their people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us.
    I’m rich. I’m a builder. I’ll build a wall.
    Let’s make Egypt great again.”

    Advisor:
    “But we need a cheap labor force to build anything”

    Akhenaten:

    “OK. We’ll make an exception for a cheap labor force, and those good, and cheap gyro stands that I just love. Now, about that monotheism stuff…”

    Thus, a good news, bad news, business plan/scenario was established by Akhenaten.
