Name That Toon - a Hambo blog hop!

Welcome to "Name That Toon!", the latest Hambo Stamps blog hop! Today Hambo friends and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you a dozen fun creations that depict comic strips! It might be our favorite, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from Lyn's blog you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize!

So - can you tell which comic strip I chose?

Being the enginerd that I am, Dilbert has always been my favorite! Back when I was part of the working world at Motorola, Dilbert strips were always so timely, capturing what we were doing, or what management was doing. We were absolutely positive Scott Adams had to have a mole inside Motorola, gathering ideas for his strip! When I saw the theme for this hop I knew I wanted to do a Dilbert post, but I was stumped! Monica pointed out a card with the Three Ties - digi would be perfect. Especially if I captured the "Dilbert look" by turning up the end of the tie!

Thanks for the great idea, Monica!! I paired the tie, which I just colored with black & red stripes to look like Dilbert, with the Birthdays Happen - 1808 message to finish it off.

I have to share one of my all-time favorite Dilberts! Not sure it will amuse anyone else as much as it did me, but I worked in Quality Assurance and always had this one hanging up in my cubicle, LOL!
