I actually find the American version of ‘The Office’ funnier than the original. Ricky Gervais played his love-to-hate-him character so well that I couldn’t, well, keep from hating him.
While watching some mindless television comedy the other day, I saw a preview of the American version of the show where Michael Scott (the boss) was talking with Dwight Shrute (the incredibly strange employee). Scott asked ‘What motivates people more than anything else?’ to which Shrute immediately responded ‘Torture.’
As an SRA survivor with a dark sense of humour, this had me laughing hysterically. I can certainly attest to the truth of the argument! 🙂
