'The Office' Recap: Jesus Versus Tranny Claus


It's Christmas on Dunder Mifflin Scranton! And for the midseason closer of The Office, the DM peeps have the following to offer: Jesus heckling Santa, Obama building his own jail, "Tranny Claus," and a love interest for Oscar - can I get a woot woot?


Santa versus Jesus


Forget David versus David (my references are so last year), The Office came up with a rivalry that is not only funny, but also carries with it a consumerist/capitalist commentary on Christmas. After years of waiting, Phyllis was able to realize her dream of playing Santa ("I have the right temperament and figure.")


Of course, this didn't sink well with Michael. But he lost the vote, so Phyllis got to keep the Santa costume. So he went to his office, turn his costume inside out, and voila! Instant Jesus. When he came out, Angela was clapping and he was calling Toby the Anti-Christ. The HR person informed him that he couldn't peddle religion in the office, and Michael was like, "You cannot push religion but you can push drugs? Choose your poison."


Because he's not getting any attention, he started heckling Santa, who by then was distributing gifts to people. Things like, "You've been a good boy? Adultery is a sin!" directed at Stanley, and something about her height directed at Angela.
