I did this cartoon thinking about how can department stores offer 50-70% off merchandise?  If you think of the design, the production, legalities, shipment, and sales people, and whatever else — what was the profit margins like without the discounts?  What if the auto industry could knock off 70% on a car?  Whooo-wee!
