I'm willing to turn a blind eye to this, as it was essentially within a
plotline that was in character.  It's easy to imagine that Kevin has
very little to live for at work, and just as easy to believe that
shredding is something that gets him through the day.

It was certainly better than Sydney and Jack Bristow discussing the
make of their SVU while chasing down bad guys, as we once saw on
"Alias"...

This was a major part of 30 Rock tonight.  Handled it in a very funny,
clever way I thought.

I wonder if it is an acknowledgement of the Staples deal that Michael got during the
convention?

All true.

At least they were in so in your face about it that it was *almost*
humorous.

Still not a big fan of the episode. The Office has been pretty sub-par
this season but I will continue to watch.
