Dilbert’s satirical swipes at office life aren’t limited to inter-office politics.  

This strip highlights the psychological impact of advertising lures and marketing manipulation on gullible consumers . . .

Thought to Ponder:  Who’s responsible for deception in advertising?  Marketing managers . . . or the consumers who buy into their lures?

Addendum:  Rik’s word of the day ties in nicely with this post ~ Nimiety:

Nimiety pimiety biggiety boo
Owning a nimiety of stuff tends to suffocate you!
Nimiety pimiety biggiety bop
You’ll have a nimiety of stuff if you shop til you drop
Nimiety pimiety biggiety buff
You stop living in nimiety when you learn to say ENOUGH!

No rules.  Just write!
