Extra! Extra! TIME Smells!

In what will go down as one of the greatest cases of plagiarism in media history, I'd like to point out that my post yesterday about the similarities between The Office and The Administration was apparently picked up by a bunch of lazy, copycat reporters at Time Magazine.

Well, that, or the comparisons were just too damn obvious.

I think you should sue. If nothing else, Time's troops deserve grief for atrocious abuse of pronouns ("It was Karen that . . ."}.

Then, there was that whole sit on a hot story until a year after the '04 election SO AS NOT TO AFFECT THE OUTCOME OF THE ELECTION!

God, how I hate Time and the corporate coven behind it.

Time just updated and gave you credit. I hate them just a little less now.

WHoops, I just had her as Lionel Hutz, but I've quoted him so much I actually own his likeness, having wrested it away from Matt "Moneybags" Groening.

Hey, that's cool. We'll have to add a banner to the site noting the Time Magazine Seal of Approval.

Is your source on this reliable?

And weren't you Time's person of the year last year?
