I swear, they let Scott Adams and Brooke McEldowney get away with any damn thing they want.

    I’m pretty sure Wally’s arm is just hanging down. All filth is in his head.

    Unless his arm magically doubles in length between panel 2 and panel 3, I don’t think Wally could actually reach anything naughty. At worst, he’s scratching the side of his rear end.

    I get Dilbert comics daily via email. I knew this one would show up here as soon as I read it. It’s just Wally being Wally. As was said above… his nawtiness is all in his head.

    I agree with Bill. I used to follow Scott Adams’ blog and he’d sometimes talk about how he’s learned over the years just how close he can come to the “line” without going over. In this one, it’d be something like “movement lines on the arm: too far. arm just hanging down: okay.”

    Brooke McEldowney… I dunno, must’ve paid somebody off or something.

    Oh, the hand is definitely out of frame for a reason. Motion lines would have been over the line, this way he can plead innocence.

    But Dilbert’s hands are completely out of frame in every panel. That doesn’t mean he’s doing something naughty with them. I just don’t see this one as Arlo at all. Risque, yes, but all in the head.

    Is the guy’s head in the middle supposed to look incredibly phallic? That could be what is driving Wally’s fantasies?
