What happens when a no-name white-collar cubicle employee loses a top-secret mobile phone prototype?

Scott Adams, the artist behind the long-running "Dilbert" comic strip was so struck by inspiration over the Gray Powell iPhone debacle that he rushed out two new comic strips that will never run in the local papers (due to scheduling that runs several weeks in advance), but were posted to his official blog.

"I found this story too delicious to resist, but I worried that the story would become stale before my comics would work through the pipeline," writes Adam. "So here now, exclusively for you blog readers, the totally unfinished first drafts of those comics."

One strip depicts Wally, Dilbert's coworker, casually asking to take the "4G phone prototype" to a beer garden, followed by him appearing passed-out drunk with the device sitting on the bar.

The other strip has Wally confessing to his boss that he lost the prototype in a bar and asks, "Can we agree to call this a clever marketing ploy?"

The comic strips will never appear in papers, though maybe they'll hit a Dilbert compilation book some day. Regardless, for now, they're Internet fodder:

See the whole strip on the Dilbert blog.
