No way. I posted the same comic, on my cubical cork board, the day it was published. My bosses had a sense of humor about it though, and thought it was quite amusing.

i guess, in the Brave New Democracy, mocking authority is a form of terrorism. The rogue employee should be shipped off to Guantanamo to be interrogated for info about other acts of terrorism. Maybe he has accomplices. This "Scott Adams" character is probably an Al Qaeda source, he should be investigated too.
