A few episodes back on NBC’s “The Office’ I happened to notice a joke that seemed familiar.
Erin the receptionist is taking pictures with a disposable camera and afterward tosses the camera away because, well, it’s disposable.
Apparently she is as dumb as Homer Simpson.
OK. It’s not the best joke they could have come up with and I thought it was rather lazy when I first saw it. The joke is not the most original to begin with but there was something familiar with the gag.
Then I was catching up on reruns of the 90′s sitcom “Newsradio” which just happen to be in syndication. I remembered that there was a similar scene done with Matthew and his disposable camera and I was finally able to track down the specific episode.
So who did the joke better? Ellie Kemper or Andy Dick? Bet there are some die-hard Office fans cringing at that comparison….
