The Office

While we fully supported them, the Writers Strike was probably one of the worst things ever to happen to Ana and I. As we are confessed LOST dorks, our greedy selves were devastated by the sudden hiatus to our favorite shows, and the implications that the strike had for our precious television season. Thankfully, now that an agreement has been reached, the shows have come trickling back in regular rotation.

Last week, The Office returned to run the rest of the interrupted fourth season. In honor of the return, and for the new episode tonight (how good does it feel to say NEW EPISODE?!), we present you with our very own (very badly rhyming) Ode to Dunder Mifflin (Scranton).

Ode to Dunder Mifflin (Scranton)

Dearest Dunder Mifflin,
We cannot help but smile,
When we think of the years we’ve had,
Let’s reminisce for a while…

Memories from oh so long ago,
That Jim Halpert is one funny fellow.
Remember his early pranks on Dwight,
When he put Dwight’s stuff in Jello?

Or when he pretended to become a vampire
After that bat gave him a bite
How about when he was at Stamford
And sent Schrute faxes from Future Dwight?

Fearless branch manager Michael Scott
His woman’s suits ever so fancy
He makes us laugh even when it’s sad
Like with his resounding cry: “I DECLARE BANKRUPTCY!”

We loved Diversity Day and Michael’s Chris Rock impression,
And his sweet hoops skills even as the worst basketball rookie,
His sensitivity to race and gender perhaps is best personified
With his words to Kelly: “Welcome to my convenience store, would you like a Cookie Cookie?”

There are so many shenanigans
We can’t even begin to count
We can’t end the ode without giving StanleyAngelaOscarTobyMeredithRyanPhylissAndy and Creed
At least a quick shout out

And this Office rundown
Would be just too short and barren
Without mentioning how much we love Jim and Pam
(Screw jerkoff Roy and that b*tch Karen)

From relationships to branch merger drama,
Cheesy pita fires and Jan’s threat to sue,
One thing will never change in our hearts, Dunder Mifflin–

Dear Scranton Branch, we desperately LOVE YOU.

The End.

So…yeah. We can’t rhyme very well. Point is, the Office is back, and we couldn’t be happier!!!!
