There is so much shouting in Dilbert comics in recent times.

It's Asok!

I love Asok. I have such huge empathy for him.

I also recall last Easter, when a fellow named Jesus whose name was pronounced "hay-soos" showed up, Asok was the first person he called to be a disciple.

Asok's response ("I have a bad feeling about this") was at once funny and slightly confusing, though. He is clearly the most spiritual of the whole group, and I would not have expected him to have misgivings.

Ah, markup doesn't work, I see. A preview would have cleared that up.

'In the second frame, Dilbert should say, "Ted is the only one who knows anything about that and he is on vacation." You didn't need the comma due to the subject NOT changing, Scott.'

Commas in speech represent PAUSES, not changes of subject.

'In the last frame, Dilbert might say, "Forgive me for my efficiency." Five syllables vs. three. My version is more succinct, too.'

Scott's version is _funnier_.

And there's already a character that everyone knows is a pushover and who helps anyone who needs help. He's <i>AT THIS MEETING</i>. Can you spot him?
