Need a roach! It's for the team!

Need help! I summon the power of the otters to help with my team at work...
*dramatic, inspirational music along with some smoke effects*

I need a picture of a roach, preferably a cartoon-type image as opposed to, say, a live one... holding a sign would be even better!

I tried google and yahoo for 'roach picture', 'roach bmp', etc etc and so far have been unsuccessful...

For you picture editors, if he was holding a sign that said either 'B' or 'No Salads!', that would absolutely make my day....

The people that work for me are experienced and know their stuff, so they sometimes forget about the little things that piss people off and head straight to the no-b.s. approach... they don't understand that people remember the little things as much as the big things, and we need to still be polite, etc etc...

I told them no one will remember how a steak was if a cockroach crawled out of the salad ... They just sorta looked at me, in much the same way you all are looking at the screen right now...

So I decided to adopt that line and come up with a mascot... Kenny the Cockroach... and now he has a face!

I had a roach crawl out of the basket of rolls at a restaurant in Acapulco but I still remember the rest of the dinner as being very good. However I didn't have salad while I was there.

Let me rephrase . . .

I am an employee of a company that does consulting work for other companies and my role within my company is to go to our clients and provide consulting services to them.

Better?
