    The building manager on The Office (US) was a para.
    A Buddhist monk walked up to the guy working behind a hot dog cart and said, "Make me one with everything."

    Oh, yeah! That was a great episode, too. Billy Merchant was his name...

    Michael: This, ladies and gentlemen, is our special guest.
    Billy Merchant: Sorry I'm late. Someone parked in the handicapped parking space.
    Billy Merchant: Hey everyone, I'm Billy Merchant, you may have seen me around here before, I'm the properties manager of this office park
    Michael: You are so brave. You are so brave.
    Billy Merchant: Thank you. Actually, I've been meaning to come by here for a long time...
    Michael: But it's hard for you! Right? Because you're in a wheelchair.
    Billy Merchant: No, I just have a lot of properties to manage.
    Michael: Let me ask you something, how long does it take for you to do something simple, every day, like brush your teeth in the morning?
    Billy Merchant: I don't know, like 30 seconds?
    Michael: Oh my God, that's three times as long as it takes me.
    Michael: How did you get in your wheelchair?
    Billy Merchant: This morning? Just like every other morning, just climbed on in. [Everyone laughs]
    Michael: Hey, hey, hey, not funny! Not funny.
    Billy Merchant: Hey, hey, relax, just jokin around here.
    Michael: Well, that's good, he still has a sense of humor.
    Billy Merchant: Listen, I've actually used a chair since I was four years old. I don't really notice it anymore.
    Michael: Well they notice it. Don't you? You notice it. It's the first thing you saw when he rolled in here, isn't it?
    Rollin' since '89. Complete C8

    Hahahahahahaha! I?m on my 3rd run through on Netflix and I still laugh my ass off and see new stuff (like last night I noticed Michael dumping a packet of Splenda into his diet soda while talking with folks in the break room.
