I guess you all know Scott Adams’ famous cartoon Dilbert. For those who have not heard about it yet, Dilbert is a typical office clerk working in a typical cubicle, having a typical idiot boss, typical weirdo colleagues, a typical evil HR manager (Catbert) and very much non-typical friend, Dogbert.
The company Dilbert works for has a factory in a place called Elbonia. (Ah, no, it has nothing to do with Albania at all – or does it?)
Anyway, Elbonia is a weird place and while Dilbert and 2 of his colleagues are sent there for a study tour in their overseas factory, their boss joins them during his vacation, which was the idea of his loving secretary.
They all fly Elbonian Airlines. Dilbert’s team flies first class, while the bioss travels on economy. What is so special in it? Well, let me quote the trash man who talks to Dogbert about the chances of Dilbert going to Elbonia and getting back alive:
Oh, well, let’s say 73 to 1. 90 to 1 if he flies Elbonian Airlines, 300 to 1 if he uses the toilet on the plane.
Here is the full cartoon video, enjoy it. 🙂
(P.S: I worked for Albanian Airlines as a consultant, no, trust me, it has nothing to do with Elbonian Airlines)
