Scott Adams, author of the Dilbert Cartoons, appears to be a little sceptical with regard to the use of spreadsheets in business. He might even have visited the EuSpRIG website once or twice. If you check the dates of his cartoons, you can see that some of his spreadsheet humour predates all of EuSpRIG.
