Woman: Okay, what's going on here? Dilbert: I'm creative. Studies show that women prefer creative men for short-term relationships. Woman: That plant is random, not creative.

How's the truth feel? Dilbert: Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!

CEO: Revenue is dropping, but don't panic. We have a new strategy that will fix everything. Dilbert: How do you know it's a good strategy. CEO: I can tell by looking at it.

Wally: If you give me a raise, I can pretend to know it's good.
