Can't a comic just be funny? Does it really need to have some deeper meaning?

@gopre77: Well thank goodness we have you to understand comics. Must be the 3years age difference that gives you so much discernment.

Jazmataz, I believe years of experience have taught Dilbert that the PHB does not understand when he is being made fun of, so mocking him in public is quite safe. The punchline can perhaps be interpreted differently, but I think the theme here is that the boss is generalising too much, i.e. trying to solve problems in one field (web development) with 'best practices' from another (carpentry). It is also a good rule not to bite the hand that feeds you if you are a dog. Dilbert just follows up the theme by pointing out he is not a dog. I find it hilarious. ^ ^

It means PHB is not paying Dilbert directly. His money just goes straight to his bank account. you don't seem to understand a lot of comics

I think maybe it got votes more for Dilberts cutting comments than for the punchline
