Office Hilarity
(A Comic Without Art)

(Ed. Note: We are experimenting with a new format here. "Dilbert" will return next week.)

My office smelled like shit. Literally. So I wasn't all that surprised to find a pile of turds underneath my desk. I guess I should say I was surprised to find the turds, but the smell led me to believe that I would soon see turds.

Had my boss let his dogs run wild in the office again? Maybe. But these were human. Some bastard thought it would be funny to grow a tail or two underneath my desk.

My cell phone rang. Wah...wah...waaaahhhh..... I don't know why I programmed that accursed ring tone. I reacted by turning off the phone as quickly as I could.

I looked more closely at the human waste. Someone had actually taken the trouble to spell out "T.G.I.F." Even the periods were there to make sure I knew it was an acronym. But it was Monday morning, 11 AM, making the joke all the crueler.

Wah...wah...waaaahhh... Wah...wah...waaaahhh.... I thought I turned it off, dammit!

10/28/2004 TheBuyer (4): Hi. I really like this short with everything removed but the first, second and fourth graphs, and I cut and pasted them to a .txt to make sure. The rest of it doesn't help the joke or is a different joke; 3 or 4 as is, five stripped down. imho

10/28/2004 Mr. Pony (3): Could have been trimmed down even further, I think. The core joke is pretty good, though, if, well, a little Dilberty.
10/28/2004 Will Disney (4): i will give this 4.5, and i see a lot of raw talent in this one, so to speak
10/28/2004 Litcube (3): Buyer, with my tongue sticking out the side of my mouth, I used my right hand index finger and left thumb to cover up your second and third sentences on my monitor. You're quite a card, my friend!
10/28/2004 TheBuyer: thanks lil' buddy! so hey, you're stalking benny maniacs, how's that goin for you?
10/28/2004 Litcube: Pretty good. I'm in the "getting his address" phase. I just gotta get him to send me something in the mail, like, say, postcards.
10/28/2004 Mr. Pony: Holy fuck.
