You must have a very high IQ to understand The Office. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of a workplace environment, most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Michael Scott’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterization- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realize that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence, people who dislike The Office truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humor in Michael’s existential catchphrase “Dwight you ignorant slut,” which itself is a cryptic reference to sex work positivity. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Greg Daniels’ genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools… how I pity them. 😂

And yes, by the way, I DO have “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. -Wayne Gretzky -Michael Scott” in one of my social media bios. And no, you cannot make me delete it. It’s for the frat guys or sorority girls only - and even then, they must demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothing personal kid 😎.
