“I say no to alcohol, it just doesn’t listen”

"I say no to alcohol, it just doesn’t listen” is a jocular line that has been printed on GIFs. The saying has been cited in print since at least August 2007, the first of several jocular sayings under the title “Dilbert’s one-liners.” The one-line sayings do not necessarily come from the comic strip Dilbert, but are of the type that such a character might have said.


Wikipedia: Dilbert
Dilbert is an American comic strip written and illustrated by Scott Adams, first published on April 16, 1989. The strip is known for its satirical office humor about a white-collar, micromanaged office featuring engineer Dilbert as the title character. The strip has spawned several books, an animated television series, a video game, and hundreds of Dilbert-themed merchandise items.
