In the light of Wally's comment, it's clear that he has absolutely no intention of working on any of this....

Dilbert's a jerk! A comet would likely eliminate all life on earth. Why couldn't he just wish for a meteor? Jerk!

The comet is a reference to other SA works. And a timely reminder too, you can never watch out too hard for comets striking oil.

Do not listen and - above all - do not respond to stupid.
It's like slap-fighting a cream cake: it gets all over you.

The clearing is Dilberts "Well, I didn't"

It didn't.

You didn't experience meetings like this, am I right?

If a guy misheard you on a metting like this, in a way like this, the answer should be some heavy arguing about this guys intention. The ladylike answer of Alice would be the "fist of death". But being Dilbert, a nervous breakdown seems to be the right way to (not) handle this
