    Dilbert sucks. Post some Doonesbury instead.

    Just a note for the cowboys in charge at the moment. I would ask they read the last two lines.

    Code of the West
    (from “Cowboy Ethics: What Wall Street Can Learn from the Code of the West” by James P. Owen)

    Live each day with courage.
    Take pride in your work.
    Always finish what you start.
    Do what has to be done.
    Be tough, but fair.
    When you make a promise, keep it.
    Ride for the brand.
    Talk less and say more.
    Remember that some things aren’t for sale.
    Know where to draw the line.

    I think the strip pretty much reflects what happens inside any caucus and/ or boardroom.

    Doonesbury reflects media values (zilch).

    I think Dogbert has many comparisons in today’s corporate world, my favourite being the single cell with the caption ‘next week a doctor with a flashlight will show us where sales projections come from’

    IMO the problem with Dilbert and shows like Better off Ted is they were funny up till the point they became too close a reflection on reality so not so much humour as they’re intended but come across as more social commentary, which they aren’t.

    All in the timing and Dilbert is more a 90’s affair.

    poor people invented ethics due to time and inspiration
