Andrew Jaquith at SecurityMetrics.org has collected what he calls “Hamster Wheels of Pain”.  These are those circular charts that so many security vendors use to describe their service.

To my immediate recollection, I’m not sure I’ve ever used a Hamster Wheel in a slide at at Sunbelt.  I recently used a “cake” format to describe our security strategy  (I’d show it to you but I’d have to carpet bomb you with non-disclosure agreements, not altogether a pleasant thought). 

Anyway, all in the interest of humor, here are some pics from his blog:
