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 he can keep the rats away, of course.
