Dilbert

Postby Xandax » Tue Oct 28, 2003 5:19 am

Anybody in here a fan of the dilbert comics?

I find them (most often) hillarious because there is so much truth in them - in fact Dilbert comics have been my project group (writing a major paper for school) trademark during the last couple of months

So - anybody else like Dilbert?

Tobad - I love Dilbert, and we have posted them all over our walls in the room we work in at school :D

Yeah, Dilbert is ok.
I think most Dilbert readers are american though. Here in The Netherlands, it's only publisched in a newspaper... if memory serves me well that is. :)

Well - I get my daily dose from the offical website (dilbert.com), but besides that, only a few of his books are sold, here in Denmark, and no papers carry it as far as I've seen.

But yes - I think the comic is more directed at the american market, but much of the office humor fits so well in all offices around the world.

I know I've seen at least one "pointy haired" boss in my life, duing what seems to be random acts of management (as one of my comic books are called) :)

The Joy of Work is also one of the books (real books).

Actually quite funny, even with limited cartoons in it.


Random Acts of Management is a cartoon book wich I got.

I do. :) I've never been part of the rat race and after reading Dilbert I never want to be. ;)

Same here. :D

Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.

I'm sure Dilbert comics/books are sold in the UK (I can strongly recommend Scott Adams' "Dilbert/Dogbert" books).

The cartoon television show ran a few times on danish TV, but they took it down fast it seems, so they only showed maginal stuff.
I do find the comics and books much better then the TV show.
