Dilbert isn't quite an example of "The Logical Fallacy of Generalization from Fictional Evidence": Scott Adams, in his non-fiction books, repeatedly mentions that no matter how crazy he makes his Dilbert strips, people keep telling him "That's just like my job." In other words, Dilbert is a documentary. ;)

Also, there's this book. If you want to know how corporations are actually run, you need to read it.
