urgently urgent!

I'm giving a presentation tomorrow for which I have a slide related to the statement that "Economics is about choices, all kinds of choices" and I want an image to go along with it. So, what would be a good image out there on the web that I could appropriate and use for "economics" or "economists"?

Instead, just put a bit of text that says "assume an economist."

Stock art databases are your friend. Go to istockphoto.com and search for "choice" or "choices" for instance. E.g., here's a nice one. At the resolution you want, it'll cost you a dollar.

Here's another one.

Be witty: Use the wavefunction symbol (maybe with a question mark). That stands for any choice that could possibly be made in the mathematical model sense. Economists will love being so elevated.
Simple/elegant (you could've thought of this yourself!)

(....BTW.... it's PSI, -- but you knew that already...)

I like the stock photo idea, but I couldn't figure out a way to only spend $1 rather than have to buy $10 of credits to spend $1. Psi aside, I liked the apples and oranges idea, so have a picture of that I took off the web.

Apples and oranges. More like a dilemma.

Apples and oranges!!? Why can't you come up with these things alone (surely you DID prepare the presentation by yourself? Not full of cliches, I hope.).

Halfway through the presentation, I will transform myself into a green ball of energy and then, immediately, a monarch butterfly. Is that cliche as well?
