    I love it! When you showed it to our customers during your keynote in 2011 the whole room laughed. And it definitely illustrates the difference between the tools. Plus WE ALL DO IT. Keep goin’ Ray.

    Haha, what a great slide and Im adding it to Pinterest.

    Personally I think it’s fine to use. We are all adults and it’s just a bit of fun!

    Your clients should relax. Even a group of church admins would get a chuckle out of the slide. It’s harmless.

    However, if you want to get the same point home with humor, and remove the controversy, use the social networks as a donut rating slide: http://www.inquisitr.com/wp-content/2012/02/social-networks-explained.jpg
