However, his mother's birthday is coming. A trip to the mall is necessary. But, Dilbert has a emotional scar when his father left for the "All You Can Eat" buffet at the Red Oyster (a spoof of Red Lobster).

Eventually, Dogbert, Asok, and Wally accompany him to the mall, which looks like a giant labyrinth. Image File history File links Dilbert_201. ...

Dilbert focuses on finding the Red Oyster, where he meets up with his father. After a conversation with him in which his father refers to "All You Can Eat" as a philosophy, he vanishes into the crowd. On his mother's birthday, Dilbert gives Dilmom a tape footage (courtesy of Dogbert) of his father at the mall.
Dilbert portrays corporate culture as a Kafkaesque world of bureaucracy for its own sake and office politics that stand in the way of productivity, where employees' skills and efforts are not rewarded, and busy work praised.
Dilbert usually has no visible mouth or eyes, and in all but the early strips his tie usually curves upward.
The adoption of Dilbert as an icon for corporate America has led to Scott Adams being criticized, in some circles, for allowing his creation to be adopted and embraced by the very same corporate world his strip satirizes.
