My PSA to You

Do you remember those Public Service Announcements that the networks would trot out every once in a while to show that they really cared about their viewers? You know the ones where some TV star would give advice about doing dope, or building self-esteem and it would end with the phrase "And that's one to grow on" or some other stupid name?
Of COURSE you do. I mean, right? If I remember it then you MUST remember it, right?
Hell, I'm old enough to remember the "Bicentennial Minute" spots that aired on TV during 1976 and I saw"Conjunction Junction" when it was first aired.
But I digress.
And you DO remember Public Service Announcements, right???
Well, whatever. Thankfully, the cast and crew of "The Office" on NBC also remember them and they set out to create Public Service Announcements that aired as "commercials" during first-run eps of their show this year.
Watch these valuable life lessons from Jim, Pam, Ryan, Kelli and the incomparable Dwight Shrute and learn from them.

Office Work

"I'm angry, and not because I'm in it, but because it degrades women, which I hate."
- David Brent
Regular readers know of my unabashed LOVE for the BBC version of The Office.
However, I also love, love, LOVE NBC's hysterical American version of The Office.
Now the twain may meet!! You can read about it HERE!
All I can say is YAY!
