The Boss: "Run this by our attorney."
Dilbert: "May I vigorously hit myself with a hammer instead?"
The Boss: "You have my attention."
Dilbert: "Either way, it's a painful process that won't change the final result." "But the hammer is quicker and it will still make you feel as if you made me do something."
The Boss: "Okay. Try the hammer thing." BAM! "Ouch!" BAM! "Ouch!" BAM! "Ouch!" "Now run it by our attorney so it feels as if I did two things."
