Things I dislike (and other people think I’m crazy for it): Dilbert

How is this funny?  How are any Dilbert comics funny?  Or is funny even the point?

I have a pretty good sense of humor.  Calvin and Hobbes is still my favorite comic strip.  Monty Python's Meaning of Life makes me laugh every single time I watch it. ("Fishy, fishy, fishy, fish!")  Sheldon Cooper geeking out will always be funny. ("Do you know what I can do with Leonard Nemoy's DNA?!?!")

I've never found Dilbert funny.  At all.

Jeff has tried to get me to laugh at strips here and there over the years, and when I just look at him like the whole thing is completely stupid, he says, "Oh, come on! That was funny!"

All I see when I read Dilbert is a comic strip that is way too much like real life at an office I used to work at.

What am I missing?
