THE OFFICE: IN WINNIPEG

Well, this is too good. The Office is going to have an episode where Steve Carell's character, Michael Scott, and a couple of his underlings make a trip up to Winnipeg, Manitoba -- otherwise known as the Scranton of Canada.

Just the fact that The Office will have a show set in Winnipeg is funny enough. Winnipeg is good for a few laughs all by itself. (The place has also been featured in episodes of The Simpsons.)

The whole thing was actually shot in Los Angeles, apparently. Don't worry, though. The tourism bureau apparently sent down some Old Dutch chips and stuff from The Bay to make it look real.

(Did they send down any Winnipeg Jets jerseys? They still sell those, there, too.)

Oh, and I hope Michael Scott brings a newspaper on his business trip --- otherwise he'll have nothing to read, because the Winnipeg Free Press is still on strike.
