Dilbert On a Roll

Scott Adams, the creator of the Dilbert cartoon strip has been exceptionally good. As the old saying goes a picture is worth a thousand words. (Click on the image to get a better view.) Enjoy!

The Dilbert cartoon above gets into a topic that I have not talked about much. Marketing has become a new "drug". In our consumerist society, it appears that marketers do not understand that customers may become desensitized to the marketing message. Like the story of the boy who cried wolf, after repeating a message over and over again, the message ends up getting ignored. Like drug addicts, once the message (rush) gets ignored due to desensitization, the dogmatic solution of the marketers is to further accost the consumer with ever more marketing.

On the lack of ethics today, the cartoons below speaks volumes concerning the lack of ethics by our corporate and elected leaders.

Finally, good old corporate double speak.

That is almost too scarey / true to be funny. Gotta love Dilbert, though!
