Rainn Wilson is not Dwight Schrute. He was born in Seattle, not on Schrute Farms, and he almost certainly did not perform his own circumcision; his middle name is Dietrich, not Kurt; and he has a normal relationship with a human woman, something Dwight’s never really managed to accomplish.
Still, there are many similarities between the actor and his most famous character. Both of them, for example, think the inspirational quotes you list as favorites on Facebook are stupid — and neither will hesitate to explain precisely why they’re so wrong.
Thus the following video, an entry in College Humor’s “Malarious” series. (They’re funny clips for a cause!) Watch as Schrute — er, Wilson — mercilessly takes down college students who dare to live for the nights they’ll never remember with the friends they’ll never forget. But try not to laugh — laughter indicates weakness.
So, what’s Wilson’s best comeback? I’d have to go with “lions,” spiritual successor to “Bears. Beets Battlestar Galactica.”
