On last night's episode of The Office, Jo was conducting a fact-finding-mission to figure out who the company whistle-blower was. Sabre, having manufactured printers that spontaneously combust, was outed to the media in a video (made by the character Andy), and several other members of the Scranton branch. The product error and safety issues, obvi, are causing quite a problem for the company. The episode is fairly hilarious, and in a 15 second scene (one of the things I love about The Office), the pseudo-documentary filmmakers find David Wallace sitting on his front porch, still unshaven, wearing a bright yellow hooded sweatshirt. All he says is,
"I do not want to speak directly about Dunder Mifflin. But I do want to talk about . . . Suck It." and he smiles.
The camera pans out and we see that his sweatshirt says SUCK IT, much like this t-shirt featured today on "T-Shirt A Day".
I found these 15 seconds of television to be poignant, moving, and downright accurate. Like the movie UP IN THE AIR, I thought it was a timely assessment of the country's unemployment figures. And that's all I have to say about that.
