The Office

I LOVE The Office.  It consistently makes me laugh out loud, even when I'm home watching it by myself.


My speech is always peppered with quotes from Michael Scott such as "that's what she said" or my other favorite, "I'm not superstitious.  I'm just ... stitious."  See, I'm laughing right now, just from typing that.

Often times at work one of the guys will say something completely innocent and I'll shout from my cubicle (or pubicle as Spleen calls them) "that's what she said!"  And then we all crack up for a few seconds before shoving our noses back into corporate balance sheets.

A few of today's well placed gems:
  • "I wanted it a little dirtier."
  • "If I lifted my leg like that, I'd tear three tendons."
  • "Come on let's go.  I'm not afraid to shake it with you."
  • "Dude, I did the security guy last time and it only took three minutes."
Sometimes they just make it way too easy.

The Office rocks. My favourite is definitely "I wanted it a little dirtier'....

Yeah I never got into it, and now it's too late. Now I feel like a bandwagon jumper. Or something.

Would you rather make out with Michael Scott in his office with the blinds up (but have to endure him high-fiving his co-workers afterwards) OR make out with Dwight Shroot in the conference room (with Angela pressed to the glass watching)? ;). There is no option C!

Option B, baby. Dwight is, in the words of Lisa Lampanelli (thanks Ash) HAAAAAAAAT.

I love Dwight's weird cousin on the farm. What's his name again? He reimnds me of:
1) A creepy kid I went to junior high with, who picked his boogers in Science class and stuck them under the table.
2) the "gimp" on PUlp Fiction
3) my strange cousin, Huey, who liked to hide my stuff and then giggle as I looked for it.

I've missed out on the whole Office thing. I feel leftout :( Everyone keeps telling me to tune in. Is it too late???

Here's a little twist you can add to your "Office" jokes - they are compliments of "Sponge Bob". Whenever someone says "That's what she said", you say (drag it out a little bit) "At night!" !!! Trust me, this can be good for some serious laughs when well-timed. Not that I do it or anything...

I think it's Cousin Mose, right Boggy Woggy? And just the phrase "Beet Farm" cracks me up. Can't wait for the new season to start. And Bella Della! It's NEVER too late, what with the power of Netflix?! Start from the beginning. Since you like sarcasm, you won't be sorry. And BHE, I'm TRYING that "at night," BUT I still have issue with him living in "Bikini Bottom" because ... ew.

This sounds like my office with the random yelling of "that's what she said." We joke that all office conversations eventually end up being about either poop or sex.

Also I watched a bunch of web episodes of "The Office" online last night and they are hilarious. They have a bunch of 2 minute 'web exclusive' summer ones that are pretty funny.
