The Office This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

     It is a Thursday night, and I make sure I am finished with homework and ready to turn on the television. I sit down in the living room with my family prepared to laugh out loud at our favorite show, “The Office.” It begins, and with the first line, I am already beginning to giggle.

Whether it is the outrageously dorky Dwight Schrute making some strange observation or the dimwitted boss, Michael Scott, making an ignorant, racist comment, the characters of “The Office” never fail to tickle my funny bone.

The personalities in the Scranton branch of the Dunder-Mifflin paper supply company are so simple, yet each one is hysterical. Many represent the stereotypes in real offices. The boss is a moron, and his right-hand man is an annoying brown nose. Pam, the secretary, is pretty and kind; Angela is an uptight snob; Kevin is chubby, cute, and slow; Toby is divorced and depressed. The list goes on and on. There are some hidden love connections among the group, and the interactions between the characters are always entertaining.

I easily could have written this article... I feel the same way, and my Thursday nights are probably really similar!

I agree that it doesnt always make me laugh out loud, but it does make me cry. (i cry when i try to hold in a laugh) I love all of the characters and can never wait for 6:30 to roll around

Dont get me wrong, I like the show, but I think some of the things just arent that funny. I get the humor, and whatnot, but it doesnt make me laugh out loud.
