I'm sure some of you have seen it. Three panel cartoon:

1st panel: Stagecoach stuck in the mud. Caption: "The Problem"
2nd panel: Stagecoach stuck in mud, more horses attached to it. Caption: "The obvious solution"
Third panel: Stagecoach stuck in mud, more people with whips. Caption: "The management solution"

It's been years since I've seen it, anybody have a copy or find one online?

Dunno that one. But I immediately was reminded of this one:

Your request made me think of Edward Bellamy's stagecoach metaphor, although that is rather different.

I think I've seen the comic in question... I'm actually surprised a few minutes of searching with google images doesn't bring it up.
