Since 1994, when Scott Adams published "Always Postpone Meetings With Time Wasting Morons," legions of "cube dwellers" across the country have transformed Dilbert from a comic strip character into a movement - or at least a phenomenon. Here's how to buy for the Dilbert fan in your life.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Introduce yourself to the cast: primarily Dilbert, Dogbert, Catbert and Ratbert - and, of course, The Boss. A few days of reading the strip - or a quick browse through one of Adams' books - will bring you up to speed.

  2. 2

    Acquaint yourself with the dizzying array of Dilbert merchandise. This consists of the predictable (mouse pads, card games, calendars, T-shirts and sweatshirts), the practical (mugs, desk organizers, bookends), and the sublimely humorous (Phone Call Flash Cards, a Back Stabber Alert, a cubicle periscope, the Dilbert Boss Voodoo Doll with 14 flagged darts).

  3. 3

    Decide on the goal of your purchase: to send a co-worker into hysterics? To instigate a covert revolution? To update your cubicle's look?

  4. 4

    Decide if you'll shop in person or online.
