The dust bunny says, "You must honor me by decorating closet doors and singing dust hymns." Dogbert asks, "What about gifts? Do I get any gifts out of this?"

Dogbert continues, "Basically, he said that when there are multiple explanations for something, the simplest explanation is usually correct." They sit down on some rocks.

Dilbert asks, "I'm an idiot?" Dogbert replies, "I don't think we can rule it out at this point."
