People often ask me if my editor ever rejects particular Dilbert comics for one reason or another. It's rare, but it happens. In fact, it happened yesterday. You won't see this comic in newspapers. I guess I went, um, a little too far. You be the judge.

That's precious. Americans spend too much time looking for ways to be offended.

I think Alice needs a better line.

Your editor sounds like a real ball buster.

The following link appears on the Australian news site news.com.au: "Editor cans rude Dilbert strip - Read More". It links to this blog. Ironically, if you take into account the fans that read them online anyway, I reckon more people will see the "unpublished" strip in Australia than ever get to see a published one.

I'm afraid I have to agree with sorebikr - it's a fairly poor toss-off to the lowest common denominator and the joke was already apparent in the first frame.

To heck with your editor, this is the funniest Dilbert strip I've read in a long time, and I've been a long-time fan!

I just got a brainstorm - the next Dilbert book! Put all your rejected strips into one PG-13 rated book! You could also make a bunch of borderline-naughty strips, submit them to your publisher, and if they're rejected, they go into the book! You'll make zillions!

If you use this idea, you owe me a lunch at Stacey's. Cheap, I'd say.

Scott, did you ask them if they were holding it upside down?

I always find the daily comics a little funny, but I never really laugh. Now this one, I actually laughed !! Very good.

Funny!

I wonder if the censors would have approved my mashup about Dilbert's twin nephew and neice who were born on the first day of hunting season: DilBUCK and ..... Sharon! Her name is Sharon!

And yet if you made a comic with gratuitous violence it'd probably fly right through censors no problem.

Always wondered how http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/1998-04-25/ ever made it past the censors. I guess they _do_ have limits after all. Sad - this is a great gag.

M'eh. Not your best work.

Heh. I saw it right away, but then, I'm not exactly sweet and innocent. I can see why they would have rejected it, as the funny-pages are for bland humor these days. Might be worth keeping on hand for your next Dilbert book, though, as those usually have a fully adult audience.

Scott,

What a good way to get even with the editor!
