Alice clenches her teeth in anger.

Dilbert continues, "Either way is okay with me. It's your call." The Boss doesn't respond and Dilbert leaves his office thinking, "He looks funny all purple."

Asok holds a letter out and says, "We all signed a card."
The boss stands behind Dilbert's cubicle and pionts at the screen. The boss says, "Now move the other thing next to the other thing and label it "ram cache."

The boss says, "No, I'm sure that's a circuit design."
