The elusive Motown elevator cartoon

Super-long-shot-filter: Trying to find a single-pane cartoon about elevators in Motown.

Several years ago, I saw a single-pane comic that featured a close-up of elevator buttons. The top one set "Get on up" and the bottom one said "Get down." The caption read something like "elevators in Motown." It was hilarious, and I haven't been able to find it since.

No luck Googling/Google Image Searching, and I've tried some Bizarro archives thinking it might have been that comic but to no avail. I suppose it could have been a New Yorker cartoon but I have no idea. Does this ring a bell to anybody?

Sounds like it could be a Far Side cartoon. Not sure if there is a searchable database of them out there somewhere though.

Also sounds like something that could have been in the New Yorker. You could try checking their Cartoon Bank.

Response by poster: Thanks, I've tried Cartoon Bank and a couple other similar sites, and while I've found a ton of elevator cartoons (who knew?), I haven't found the one I'm looking for.
