Can't Get Enough of The Office?

I absolutely LOVE NBC's The Office. I love it so much, that I am subscribed to a few of their fansites, getting daily RSS feeds about news and updates on episodes, character developments, cast members, etc. Yeah, it's kind of a big deal to me.

Anyway, one of my favorite Office-related subscriptions is my monthly email for the Dunder-Mifflin Scranton Newsletter. Different employees from the Scranton branch "put together" - and by "put together," I mean that it's most likely the writing staff for The Office - a newsletter, filled with whatever their quirky characters might be saying in a newsletter:

Here's a few excerpts from this month's newsletter:

"Dwight Speaks! Chewing on pens is completely unacceptable. It's a disgusting habit that some of my co-workers partake in. This oral fixation is offering up a slew of germs and/or viruses to not only the chewer, but the person he/she passes their pen on too. When you put office supplies in your mouth you are sharing a dose of your infectious saliva with all your co-workers. Although my writing utensils are heavily guarded, I still come across a chewed pen every now and then. The other day I found Andy chewing on one of my pens - to retaliate I walked over and spat on his desk. I've reached my wit's end with pen chewers - their filthy habit will no longer be tolerated. To encourage everyone to halt this behavior I will be applying a dose of an anticoagulant to all of the pens in the office. Consider yourself warned."

"And Now Michael Scott: Sometimes I think I could invent things better than the inventors do. There are lots of times when I know what will make an invention better long before the inventors themselves. Like when the first cell phones came out, I looked at them and instantly thought, 'They should make these really small.' It was years before the telephone manufacturers got that idea..."

"The Celeb 411 (with Kelly Kapoor): OMG you guys! I just heard that Jamie Lynn Spears is pregnant! Again! She just gave birth to a super cute baby girl, Maddie Briann, three months ago. Now it looks like Maddie is going to have a little baby brother or sister to play with pretty soon! Leave it to a member of the Spears family to start a new trend: teen pregnancies. Having a baby before you graduate high school has gone from "totally bad news" to "super cool" in the last year (sort of like cardigans)."
