Software Development Life Cycle Cartoon

A classical cartoon shown in Software Engineering classes, blogs, emails, sites, etc about SDLC

Well, at least the current most-known, but few know that the original comes from Principles Of Software Engineering Management, Tom Gilb , 1988, p.45

(original from: http://www.iam.unibe.ch/%7Eese/Archive/ESE2000/WWW/pictures/SoftwareSpecCartoon.gif )
And a very similar cartoon from the SMUG book can be found:

Anyway whoever was the original creator (it'd be nice to know) this metaphor makes laugh anyone who has worked in a Software Development Process.
