You Can’t Argue with Dilbert!

  • by

When the writers of Dilbert get it right you just can’t argue with them. This hillarious comic strip offers a daily reason to stop, think and enjoy a good piece of humour. Today’s entry defines the capitalist mind perfectly. Scott Adams & co., keep up the good work! source: Dilbert Comic Strip Archive –… Read More »You Can’t Argue with Dilbert!

Nice to know that even the hardest of the corporate achievers can have a conscience… I just have to wonder cynically though, whether or not each sterilised syringe will have a EULA sticker across the opening. o:-) source: Yahoo!
