Despair is your only option. The boss says, "Try faxing him."
Wally says, "And obviously I can't do anything until our floom vendor updates the glimrods." Man says, "I'll bitspew a protopatch to your glimrod array and you can get right to work."

Dilbert says, "I'd like to thank all of the people who helped design the technology test parameters."

The Boss says, "We'll use the test results anyway because it's the only data we have." Dilbert says, "Fine. I hope you all choke to death on your lunches." The Boss says, "Why's he so cranky?"

The Boss: From now on, all travel must be booked through the corporate travel web site. Alice: Our travel web site is terrible.

The Boss: "Just say we do. We'll figure it out later." Dilbert: "They know we don't. And we'd still be the most expensive bidder." The Boss: "Bid low.

Career Day Teacher: "Class, today Dilbert will tell us what a career in engineering is all about."
