Visual puns may not be a new formula, but this is still a really good one – and the image is nice.

I'm not sure I get it...

Is it supposed to be an egg timer?

If it is, I'm not sure it's clear enough.

Or is the visual about the resistant tip?

And is 'last longer' the best sell?

Wouldn't an illustrator or an artist value the quality of the line the pencil produces before the amount of time the pencil lasts?

I don't know -- maybe 'last longer' is a better sell.
