"The Office"... in 4 different countries...

A friend sent me this lovely little article yesterday, comparing the orignial British version of the sitcom "The Office" with its American, French, and German clones.

I expect this will be the most entertaining/intriguing if you actually watch the show, although I don't and yet I still found it fascinating in terms of cultural translation.

Foreign Office

Go take a gander.
