Dilbert Minus Dilbert

Following the popularity of Garfield Minus Garfield, it's only natural that the same thing is applied to other comics. Box Brown, the creator of the adorable Bellen (previously on Neatorama here), did this one: Dilbert Minus Dilbert.

Sorry, but this just doesn't work. Garfield Minus Garfield is genuinely funny because the original comic centers around a cat and his owner (who is the only one that can hear the cat's voice anyway). Remove the "imaginary" component and Jon becomes far more warped that any of us had originally thought when we first read the strip.

This is just another attempt to cash-in the success of that model, but Dilbert's setup doesn't allow for it to work as well. Even the Garfield that was translated to Chinese and back to English was only funny in one or two instances. Oh well, I suspect we'll see more attempts to steal GMG's spotlight before someone else tries -god forbid- thinking of something new.

So dude copies someone else's stupid idea - because, let's face it, all those Garfield concoctions are mindless abortions - where am I going with this? Oh yeah, dumb ideas all around.
