Misused words: Taking the ‘dryer’ side for a spin

How, you might ask, did poor Asok get stuck in this bizarre location?

Because in Dilbert this week, the Pointy-Haired Boss sent him to Elbonia via the underground route, telling him to use the “dryer” side of the sewer.

If indeed there is “dryer” side of the sewer, I decided there must also be a “washer” side.

Consider that the upside of Asok’s trek into the sewer: He can do his laundry.

If one spin through the dryer (the machine) doesn’t take away the dampness of his clothes, he can always get them drier (the comparative adjective) by running them through again.

If he can keep the rats away, of course.
