My in-box was full of this one Wednesday.

Dilbert tries to be tolerant of other people’s customs; but when they want to warm up their skunks in the office microwave…



  1. how on earth did you figure out that this was a skunk? okay. I can see it now, but at the time I thought it was a turkey drumstick (or human or something?!)

  2. I think this cartoon would have been even better if there were little lines showing that the skunk is still twitching.

  3. I knew it he wanted to warm up something weird, I just couldn’t figure out what it was.

  4. Yeah, I almost mailed this one to Bill too. That’s a terrible drawing of a skunk. It looks more like a giant bug, with a balloon coming out of it’s butt.

  5. I don’t think it is a skunk, maybe a squirrel. The line down it’s back is a tire tread mark. It’s road kill. At least that’s what I saw it as.

  6. Cartoon rules for road-kill tread marks are diagonal.

  7. I got the joke … and promptly figured it would show up on CDIU.

  8. I’m happy that I caught on to this one right away. It was obviously a skunk to me, but it couldn’t be much else if an Elbonian is carrying it.
    Anyway, I’ve often thought that I was the worst for sending in CIDU; I feel a little vindicated…
