Bring Me the Head of Nutty the Squirrel
Uploaded: Jan 17, 2014
Well, not literally. I'm just adapting a title from Scott Adams' Dilbert: Bring Me the Head of Willy the Mailboy. The Dilbert comic series follows the foibles of working in organizations, and city staff is indeed an organization. Willy the Mailboy suggests the search for scapegoat to take blame, to whom to point a finger, and the weakness of the organization is to let it roll downhill to the lowest employee.
Nutty also reflects that there's a bit too much spending on nonsense in the city: squirrel costumes, logos, studies on how to use the logos.
Perhaps Nutty should sit through every council meeting, in the front row, from beginning to end.
As long as there's a Nutty the Squirrel, there's a foil for serious issues.
What would Nutty say?
