Great Scott! Dunder Mifflin Morphs Into Real-Life Brand of Copy Paper

That's the clever headline on a Wall Street Journal story about how paper products sold by the fictional Dunder Mifflin paper company in the popular TV sitcom "The Office" now will actually be sold in Staples' Quill.com. Might it start a trend? A Peter Florrick from the "Good Wife" to run for Cook County state's attorney? Tom Kane from "Boss" running for Chicago mayor? Would they be any better than the current crop? Jack Donaghy, from 30 Rock, running NBC has a high-ranking executive?
