{A TV news crew is interviewing a company spokesman in front of a work site, where a bulldozer is knocking down trees in the background.}
sign on chain-link fence: PRO-FIT Engineering - "Where green is good"
company spokesman: We've developed some new low-maintenance, solar-powered, self-replicating carbon sequestration devices, to help combat global warming.
company spokesman: We'll be installing and testing them at this site as soon as the block is cleared.

I googled "pro-fit engineering" to see if the name had actually been used. It seems to have been used by some companies, in amongst the hits for the more explicit "profit engineering". The comic isn't supposed to represent any real company, and I don't know what any companies with this name actually do. It's just a joke, right, so don't sue me because you happened to choose a slightly dodgy name for your company and you happened to do it before I did!
