    I always saw Dilbert as more of a desk jockey than a true nerd. I can’t picture Dilbert arguing for The Next Generation over The Original Series, or unraveling the chronological ambiguity of the Doctor Who canon. He always seemed to be the foil that made the surrounding nerds seem weirder and more unhinged.

    Then again, I never read much Dilbert, because I never found it to be all that funny, unlike a certain other comic I can think of.

    Gonna go with Bob on this one.

    Dilbert without a doubt, but that is because of:

    Alice, and the rest of the nerd crew
    Dogbert, the unstoppable force that always kind of looks out for Dilbert.

    Conclusion: Bob needs a talking pet. :)

      We need a tie breaker. :) Does a talking watch (Gizmo) count, Paul? :)

    Bob, because he’s the more passionate nerd. You never see Dilbert frothing at the mouth, like Bob is above.

    As for an interface for a brick, try a trowel and mortar.

Tell me what you think!
