"...under-estimated" as in Dogbert making a negative comment (Dilbert not estimating his control correctly) and that he will say nothing else but that comment in itself would ruin Dilbert's day?

Well I am pleased to discover after all these years there is a comments page though this is the first time I have ever had the least negative comment to make. In the past if I didn't find a strip amusing I assumed that I just didn't get it or alternatively a cultural difference interfered. ( I am not American and only very briefly have been directly exposed to cubicle farms. When I was though I must admit I was very surprised by the documentary nature of the strip. But I digress.

With this strip I find several others have made the "under" "over" point. I'm pretty sure it is an error and it often turns up in a misquotation of H L Mencken "No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public" though this is apparently a paraphrase. Oddly enough when I was checking to make sure I had my facts right I discovered this quote is sometimes attributed in error to SCOTT ADAMS.

Dogbert's real name is "downer"....

Mistake #1: Letting Dogbert know you're having a good day.
Mistake #2: Trying to tell Dogbert what to do.

This can only lead to one thing tomorrow; an elaborate plan/speech from Dogbert to ruin Dilbert's happiness and put him back into his usual miserable self.

Quick, give Dogbert a milk bone, maybe that will placate him.
