Pick a character and develop a scenario for how they might have turned out in an alternate universe. You have all sorts of freedom here, folks, so don’t be afraid to let your imagination wander. Your character doesn’t even have to live in the same era, for instance. Here’s an example:

Dwight Schrute, Neanderthal, 100,000 BC
While his contemporaries were fending off saber-toothed tigers, Dwight was busy laying the foundations for social outcasts and ineffective middle-tier management. His poor physical conditioning and a general lack of street cred among the cave-folk excluded him from the epic man-versus-beast struggles that characterized the times, leading him to pursue less demanding activities such as gardening and cold-climate beet farming.

You all have until approximately July 4 at 12:15 AM PDT to submit your entry (be sure to follow the contest rules). Break a leg, guys.

Some Kind of Awesome

I finally had a chance to catch up on the numerous Office-related happenings over this past week, and this particular bit from John’s recent online chat (thanks for transcribing, tanster) caught my eye.

GMMR : John, I read that you heard about our petition to Supersize the Office. Can you talk about the fan impact on the show?
John : GMMR. the fan impact on the show has been MONUMENTAL. It’s the whole reason why we are where we are, so first of all, thank you guys SO much. That was INCREDIBLE, and we all cheered on set the day we found out about it. As far as the impact, they say things are cliche because they are true, and it is true that everybody can make a difference. NBC definitely did it because of YOU guys.

The thought of everyone cheering on set because of something we did is really something. Wow, do I feel proud. So very proud. I’ll remember this one for a while.
