I spent a lot of time working in corporate america.

Though, to be fair, when you talk about corporate america, I really think any amount of time spent there, is probably too much.  but that's some bitter for another day.  The point is that after all this time, I can't read Dilbert anymore.  Dilbert is funny funny stuff, but after while it just makes me sad.  Because all too often, the strip will show something that is happening in my current job, and I think "My life is a dilbert comic.  Why am I still here?".

And now I must spread the gospel of Mike Judge.  Not for "Extract", which reviews say isn't so funny, but for one of his older movies "Idiocracy".

If you haven't seen this movie yet, YOU MUST.  For all the same reasons that I can no longer read Dilbert comics.  But there is something you have to know, the payload in this movie doesn't show up while you watch it.  In fact, I recall watching it and being less than completely amazed.  The trick is, that this movie gets better when you are done.  Because that movie lets you know that things like Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C) heckling the President while he was addressing Congress, are just a sign of the inevitable stupidifying of Amerukah.

So yes, go watch this movie.
