The Legal Value of a TV Comedy

Ob-Ah271 Lb Car 20070214123651Thanks to this post at Law Blog, I (and you) know about the blog ?That?s What She Said,? which follows the TV show “The Office,” a comedy featuring an outrageously inept, offensive, and politically incorrect boss. Here’s how describes the blog:

It has a clever gimmick: [blogger Julie Elgar, a labor lawyer at Ford & Harrsion in Atlanta] puts a price tag on each episode, estimating how much the politically incorrect behavior would cost real companies to defend. Last night her approximate legal bill came to $450,000.

Maybe there’s an HR Director or General Counsel out there trying to figure out how to work episodes of The Office and blog posts from That’s What She Said into their training programs.
