Anyone else find that Dilbert cartoons are an almost exact portrayal of where you work?

For when our boss tried to make shirts and ties compulsory:

For when we all got a company mug to boost morale:

For when the teambuilding event was a day out at a lake (swimming encouraged, but not compulsory):

As a an IT geek I have to say that I really don't get Dilbert and find it very unfunny. I'm more of a 'Far Side' man myself.

it's funny how often the storylines in Dilbert match my own experience in IT

I've got Dilbert on Google Reader so I can get my daily fix. Love it.

Even though I've been retired for several years, I still enjoy Dilbert. We used to joke that there was a mole in our office sending ideas to Scott Addams.

The Wizard of Id and B.C. are my favorites. Never liked Dilbert.

I guess it depends on where you work. I always found Dilbert funny, but I couldn't usually relate it to my work (journalism/public relations). My husband is an engineer and loves it though.

I used to be a fan of ID and BC, but I found they ran out of good storylines (about 20 years ago). Dilbert is so true of anyone in a manufacturing/corporate situation that its often painful, rather than funny, but my daily Dibert strip is still one of the highlights of my day. I get an email from comics.com with Big Nate, which is quite amusing, Get Fuzzy, which can be a bit surreal and strenuous at times but when its good its great and Pearls before Swine, which is worth it for the hideous puns built up over an entire strip and the fact that the characters keep on haranguing the artist :-)

For when the boss decided to reorganize:

Reduce middle management:

And focus on core business:

I always liked this one the most, when it came out I had a boss who was such an idiot we all swore he would fall for this...

For when the boss, who has been known to make negative personal comments about staff and heads a department where backstabbing is not unknown, suddenly instructs everyone - via an e-mail with lots of smiley faces - to write positive comments about all their coworkers on scraps of paper, so that these scraps can be given anonymously to each person as a Christmas "treat".

Even Dilbert couldn't make that up.

The style of The Testamonial Comic is a lot like XKCD

(Just a random example.)

xkcd is brilliant by the way.
