dilbert: reality has become so absurd that it is indistinguishable from parody. how can we fix that?
garbage man: there is nothing to fix. reality has always been the same as parody. you just didn't notice until now.
dilbert: you're joking, right?
garbage man: check out this comic strip called "dilbert"
boss: how's the new lab construction going?
dilbert: i'm having some issues with the local building codes. they seem unnecessarily stringent. for example, we have to guarantee no rain touches the roof.
dilbert: no on knows. but if we donate to the mayor's campaign, the city will designate the roof a "horizontal wall."
boss: and then we can begin construction?
dilbert: no, that's just the beginnning of the false hope phrase.
