A transcription for the wise readers of Humanist.

From Scott Adams 2016

First panel:
-- It it turn that you invented a vice with human intelligence and human
-- Yes.

Second Panel
-- I'd give you a demo but the device is depressed and wants to be let alone.
-- It looks like a block of wood.

Final Panel
-- I'm only trying to copy the human mind. There's no reason to
over-engineer it.
-- I can respect that.

The sinologist might detect an allusion to Pu, the uncharted block of
Taoist thought. :)
