A poop joke.

I see.

The time I reclaimed for my life by not reading Dilbert, it has been worth it...

Was ... was that a joke? I thought comics were supposed to at least attempt to be humorous.

They aren't.

There is a long history of comics that are serialized fiction, both soap opera type comics (like Mary Worth) and adventure series (such as The Phantom). Any humor you get out of those comics is purely coincidental.

Barry Dingle?  that's not funny, it's Stup... oh.. Dilbert.
 
2017-11-06 02:11:58 PM  
I know, right? It's a total recycle of his old Open Door Policy jokes from like fifteen years ago.

You know, back when Dilbert was funny and relevant and Scott Adams hadn't made himself into a public laughingstock. Golden years, those, long gone now.

Adams has frequently mentioned in his non-comic books that he gets many of the ideas for his strips from readers who send in crazy stories from their workplaces.

 I wonder if his real world behavior is drying up that source of material.

Any legitimacy comic syndicates had dissipated once people could realize they can bypass papers and print their stuff online.

Well, that and when Funky Winkerbean introduced an incest subplot into their strip.

/not kidding, look it up rather than that Dilbert cake boat.

To explain even further, during the election he stated that Trump would win, for all sorts of arrogant and whargarble reasons. This is the only link I could find; I think there was a better article at the time (more first-person-written, not from WP); just imagine being talked down to by the guy that writes Dilbert (and used to work for the phone company before writing Dilbert became his full time job). To make it even more condescending, his arguments were essentially "because I'm smarter than you and Trump is smarter than you." I think Trump's win was a lot more complex than Adams makes it out to be. Well, maybe, maybe not, I don't think any of us care, but here we all are now, and Adams is even higher on his horse.

Every time Adams opens up his mouth-hole and spurts his particular brand of derp, I'm reminded of how he got his nuts in a twist when Something Rotten published "the Dilhole", a very inflammatory rip on Adams' work. 

Not safe for work, Not safe for anyone, hard trolling before real trolling:

Pretty much somes up the comic. Legacy comics should retire and let new cartoonists have a goat it. Funky,For Better or Worse(Which actually made it worse by not just have "rerun" comics, changing the story line in I guess updating the canon.)and that God awful Pluggers.

Also, he was and probably still is deep into some "Red Pill" bullshiat about how everyone who doesn't like Trump is a weak beta-male who is jealous of the alphaness of Trump and also himself.

Yes, the guy who writes Dilbert seriously fancies himself a macho man.

I mean, that's terrible, but I can only get so outraged about something that slipped into a student-run college newspaper back in 2004. My standards for blatant "edgier" knockoffs of Pearls Before Swine is only so high.

Maybe the last panel would have gotten a chuckle if I noticed the dingleberry joke in the first panel, but I was foiled by my internal monologue's accent.

Scott Adams may be a moron but I think the bigger issue is that webcomics have rendered every syndicated strip except maybe Pearls Before Swine a cute anachronism at best.

I agree that he was condescending and that he's even higher on his horse than before, but I understood his argument to be that Trump would win because people mindless idiots who are easily swayed by marketing and Trump is a master at marketing himself.

It's not just that he's a proudly unapologetic trumperdink, he's also become a climate change denier, and turned the strip into a mouthpiece for his derp.

The 90's ended a long time ago. Dilbert should have ended along with them, like every other leftover from the dot-com boom.

Doesn't he have cerebral palsy or something similar that confines him to a wheelchair?  Sorry, but not a bad-ass.

Let me explain this very simply:

1) Trump supporters are destroying this country.

2) Scott Adams is a Trump supporter

3) fark Scott Adams with a firehose that is turned on as soon as it's nicely in his rectum.

It's even worse after the time jump.  Less, the character that the writer identifies with the most, is now the main character, and he does little more than smirk condescendingly at well, everything.  I finally gave up on it when the strip rolled out (literally) the shambling wreck of Ed Crankshaft in a nursing home.  Pathetic.

For those lucky enough to not know, Crankshaft is a sister strip to Funky Winkerbean.  They run in two different time lines for some reason.  Don't ask.
