Subject: Universal Symbol for "Read The Manual"

A few weeks ago a program manager asked me if a triangle with an exclamation
mark inside it was the universal symbol for "Read the manual".

Unfortunately it is not, I had to inform him.

That got me to thinking: What is the universal symbol for "Read the manual"?

If there is not a universal symbol, let me submit the following:


A stick figure sits in a chair.
Another stick figure that is standing beside the chair is hitting
the seated figure in the back of the head with a manual.


Any other ideas out there?
