This is retarded. Before I even scrolled down from the actual comment I knew there'd be a billion pages of belly-achers whining about how offensive to old folks they thought it was.

If you think Scott Adams is offensive, I suggest you go turn on the TV and watch a few episodes of FAMILY GUY. You'll get so bent out of shape the only way to resolve the angst will be go to in your bedroom and stick your tongue in a light socket.

Then you'll come CRAWLING back to Dilbert and his playful political incorrectness.

This is the funniest comic strip I've read in forever, period. Not just Dilbert, but all comics. I was at work, and just thinking of this strip had me laughing.

the way I see it, the joke is on the manufacturers who make obsolete products, that even Fiddlesticks perform better and the hard candy was to sweeten the seller's illusion regarding the grandiosity of the whole thing ;-P

Whether the comic strip is making fun of old people or "people who don't upgrade the basic things in life that make our lives simple" or not it's not the primary joke- just an amusing secondary (if you're not offended).

The joke is at people who use statistics to tease out superficial information without making any effort to examine all the factors that effect the results. The first panel in real life would go "we surveyed 1000 people" with no one ever pointing out the method by which they did the survey biased the results, but the joke would be a lot too subtle then.
