    The puppet's reaction to young Michael's answer to what he wants to be when he grows up might be the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. I keep rewinding it to watch it. Priceless!

    The look on Pam's face when she saw how well Jim got along with one of the kids was priceless.

    Let's hope there's no Dateline tie-in in the future.

    I thought for sure Jim was behind that kid taking an interest in Pam's job. Just seemed like something he would do. I hope his date went well.

    In the production order, did this episode come before the one where Jim plans a trip to Austrialia?

    There wasn't any of the awkward tension between Jim and Pam left over from that one.

    Also, I thought that Ryan and Kelly had broken up already.


    Speaking of Ryan, what's up with him being such a chick(of-color)-magnet? First Kelly, now Stanley's daughter. You go, boy! :)

    Wasn't the oldest daughter - the one that helped Pam shred - a boy?

    I liked the scene when Mr. Poop started to read to the kids.

    Yes. He's Meredith's (the old drunk redhead who likes taking her shirt off) son. She said she got special permission to bring him, and that it was a good thing too because he had just been suspended from school so now she doens't have to pay for a sitter.

    Is this question confusing to anyone else?

    Did anyone else recognize the story he read as a real story? Someone here at my work said it sounded familiar.

    I loved how Dwight said "grandmutter" (though he should have said "groƟmutter")

    "Miss Beasly if you're nasty !" :D

    Struwwelpeter is very real and a perfect example of sick and twisted German children's stories (I read him as a kid myself).

    Yes!

    When I was 3 or 4, and still sucked my thumb, they used to read a version of that story (about a tailor who'd cut off the thumbs of kids who sucked their thumbs) out loud at my nursery school. 38 years later, I still remember how every time they read that story I'd sit on one of the teacher's laps and cry and cry. There was an accompanying horrific story about kids who played with fire. I still have a vague image in my mind of the pictures from that book.

    I wonder why my parents felt it necessary to send me to Miss Satan's School for Traumatizing Nice Little Kids. Other than the thumb-sucking, I really wasn't that rotten a kid...

    No, I understood the question and it raises a good point. It was bring your daughter to work day. One of the workers brought her son. She explained that he was suspended from school and that bringing him to the office saved the cost of hiring a sitter. But no one in the office pointed out that he was a son and not a daughter. You'd think Mr. Poop would cry foul over something like that.

    I believe she mentioned that she'd received special permission to bring her son that day.

    Ok I was confused by you calling him a daughter. If you would have said "daughter" I might have caught on, but it is a Friday and my brain really isn't working! Sorry for being a little slow today.
