Revving up the smiles here’s reviewing the comical cartoon genius of Scott Adam’s Dilbert. The legendary Dilbert strips had acquired cult status eons ago. Dogbert, Dilbert’s pet dog is arguably the shrewdest megalomaniac manager the corporate has ever seen — the canine corporate consultant out to rule the world.
Dogbert was originally created only so Dilbert would have someone to talk to, but as the strip progressed, Scott Adams developed the character to be an anti-hero, metaphorically personifying the dark, cynical side of Adams’s own personality.
This cynical canine isn’t exactly what you would think of as man’s best friend yet somehow this idiosyncratic dog resonates the most to my humor hormones. This manager mutt teaches neophyte managers potent practices as making empty promises of promotion and pretending to care by hearing without listening etc.
Here’s presenting motley of managerial wisdom from Dogbert’s thesis on everything that the closed doors of nepotistic cerebral colleges conceal from the average minds. Here’s the wisdom capsule to those bereft of hope and clambering to make it up the corporate acclivity. Here’s to the cubicle dwellers!
