Today's Dilbert is a shining example of humor at its best. It may take the average reader a little while to realize precisely why it only takes Dilbert half a second to setup and run the simulation, but it's time very well spent. The only gripe I have with it is the 50% number, but I realize the gag won't work without it, so I forgive him.
There's a similar joke in Sweden that goes like this:
- How many people work at the (insert name of whatever governmental body or company you (dis)like) office?
- About half of them.
