    Dwight Schrute?

    I guess I am supposed to know who that is…

  2. @ernieyeball: It would help the humor, yes.

  3. 60%. Not bad considering I don’t really watch The Office.

  4. Just nutha ig'rant cracker says:

    I only got 40% but then again, I don’t follow either one. I’ve never actually watched The Office for longer than 30 seconds and know the Schrute character only from Korean commercials. I may not have even paid that much attention to what Newt says.

  5. Tillman says:

    I’m rather saddened by the ones I could’ve sworn Dwight said.

  6. Eric says:

    I think the best ones were that Newt was a T-Rex expert from watching Jurassic Park and he loved playing dead to scare people

  7. Franklin says:

    40%, and I’ve probably seen more than half of The Office episodes. Pathetic performance here.
