Dilbert (5/2/09)


It’s a good thing that Dilbert’s tie curls upward – otherwise he would risk getting it soggy with sewage while cleaning his adopted toilet. This strip is pretty funny as a commentary on the state of corporate America, but what really caught my eye was the fact that the toilet in panel three is not bolted to the floor. No wonder this company is in financial trouble. Given the rise in obesity rates, it’s not hard to imagine one of these poorly secured commodes tumbling violently from the wall after bearing the brunt of a chubby, cube-bound office worker. Such an incident would undoubtedly trigger a series of expensive plumbing repairs and workers compensation claims, putting the company in an even deeper financial hole.
