The current season of The Office appears to be trying to drive home a message, and it is this: we all have a little bit of Michael Scott in us. All of us, or at least every character on the show, has the capacity to act like a childish, selfish, absurd, time-wasting dolt who still somehow means well in the end.

This underlying message first became apparent when Jim, the show's everyman, got his promotion and began slowly morphing into Michael's taller doppelganger. It's apparent in Pam's pregnancy, which, in addition to many other things (like Michael dating her mom) has over the course of this season unsurprisingly pushed her from one extreme emotion to the next. The latest episode, "Sabre," seems to lay that message bare for all to see, both in its hilarious portrayal of David Wallace and its introduction of the Scranton Branch's new overlords, a printer sales company named Sabre.

The pronunciation of the company's name is a source of confusion for Michael and the gang, who all mistakenly believe it's not pronounced like the cavalry sword, and set about greeting the company's mergers director with Sabrett hot dogs and a song by Andy and Erin. This makes for a rather funny moment when the gang realizes their error even as Michael urges Andy and Erin to play their Miley Cyrus rip-off, which of course doesn't work at all because the song's critical phrase is pronounced wrong. The funniest moment in this opening sequence, however, has nothing to do with the story, and is instead a hilarious throwaway gag – pun intended – involving Michael, Erin and scissors. If you're familiar with a certain episode of South Park, then Michael urging Erin to "scissor him" – and her obliging by tossing a pair of scissors haphazardly at him – is funny on multiple levels.
