Confusing Pricing Cartoon – Fun Friday

I’m not sure how funny I should find the following cartoon, but I have to admit that I laughed openly when it said it’s a “Confusopoly” and when it said it used the profits to fund innovation. This feels far too much like healthcare. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Of course, all the hospitals being required to post their pricing lists solved this issue right? Umm…that was the sarcasm font for those following along at home. This would be funnier if so many patients weren’t living with this challenge every day.
