@zerotenone, re: "Stupid people need jobs too."

Isn't that what politics is for?

But then, the politicians need people to vote for their direction and clarity. And that leaves us, well, um.....

Is there an error? I have seen this scrip before.

On a related note; some of these language-twisters go it as far as inventing non-existing grammatical differences, only meant to deny everyone around them of ever being right. For example, over Lunch: "What? An Audi- you call that a car!? that's not a car, that's a VEHICLE! Now Porsche - THAT'S a car!"

P.S. Did someone say Topper?

Dilbert has become documentary in its precision. Either our company is really, really generic or someone is spying on us.

Unfortunately, we are witnessing here a real-life management tactic: Always disagree with competitors when a senior manager is around. You can't directly fire competitors, but you can deny them of looking smart- like forever. Some low-level managers always deny their employees of the privilege of ever being right, sometimes hanging onto tiny grammatical matters or the usage of different wording to express the same idea.
In a related note- these people always agree with their managers, even if they say that night is day. Even if their manager says complete nonsense, they can still quote it word-for-word and sound like they deserve promotion.
