"Staples' Quill.com has struck a licensing deal with NBC's parent company to launch a Dunder Mifflin brand. Priced largely above private-label copy paper, the Dunder Mifflin packages will be emblazoned with slogans such as "Our motto is, 'Quabity First' " and "Get Your Scrant on," well-known phrases from the comedy series."
There's also a bunch of stuff about how hard it is to sell paper now, which is kind of the entire point of basing the show at a paper company, now, wasn't it? I'm not going to pretend to be an expert in the paper business, but if I went over expenditures at a company and saw that the person in charge of buying paper was spending more of the company's money than usual to buy cutesy Dunder Mifflin-brand paper just to make the office more fun, I would tell that person to cut it out. Also, are those "Office" slogans really "well-known phrases"? I've heard people repeat phrases from "The Office," but they were never either of those phrases. This entire idea is very April Fools'-y.
