Michael Scott, The Office (Steve Carell)

Some people were extremely excited a couple weeks ago when announced a special holiday tie-in with NBC’s The Office: Genuine Dunder-Mifflin paper, the perfect present for your friend whose printer is out of paper. Personally, I didn’t see what all the fuss was about. I spend my days writing on various non-paper devices: my computer, my smartphone, my iPad. They serve all the functions of paper, while also letting me to e-mail my friends, play Angry Birds, and watch YouTube videos. Paper can’t do any of those things! But I changed my tune when Officemates Kate Flannery and Oscar Nuñez swung by the EW office for an interview. They were kind enough to bring some Dunder-Mifflin paper with them, and they taught me two valuable lessons: 1) Paper is awesome, and 2) My iPad is totally stupid. Watch it all happen in the video below:
