OK, we need to dig deeper on this:
If it's a GREAT idea, why didn't Dilbert develop it on his own time so he could keep all the rewards?

Because it's a lousy idea, but PHB won't realize that and will do all the things he details above.
When Dilbert says it "might" be all of the above, he's really selling it so that PHB will own it when it comes crashing down. He can say, "Not my fault; I worked double time on this pig but it couldn't be saved."

If you have a good idea, please keep it to yourself. Remember that Terry Pratchett's version of Leonard da Vinci is kept in comfortable imprisonment where his brilliance can do no harm.

It might be all of those, it might also be none of those. How about your and the CEO go on to the edge of the roof and have a back patting competition? It'll reduce the workplace friction between you two.
