My t-shirts, part 17: Dilbert - Coworkers

Scott Adams' acid commentary on the workplace works excellently in cartoon format. When he put them in writing, they didn't work quite as well, I thought – what was witty in comics format became more mean and sarcastic in written form, and written sarcasm needs to be very witty indeed for me to not tire of it. (Spoiled a Len Deighton WWII history a bit for me when I read it many years ago – he just couldn't keep himself from making one nasty remark after another about various issues or people, and it got a bit tiresome after a while.)
