    There are fundamental laws of magic. This is like in Harry Potter, when Harry and Ron ask Hermione why they’re starving in the woods. Why doesn’t she just create food out of thin air? Because there are certain things that cannot be made out of nothing, and food is one of them. So there are limits on what Dana can do, and making Rita smarter must be one.

    Dana gets her powers as Office Manager. If she were CEO her powers would be lost.

    She make Rita smartest person in the room once — by turning everybody else to plants.

    Sure, that’s a viable workaround. She made Rita smarter by comparison without actually changing her..

    I would argue that Dana is nice but frustrated. Carolina is nice but on her own planet. Rita thinks she’s nice she just happens to be clueless. This is a comic about the working world and its interactions — in most cases nice wouldn’t be funny or as relatable. Hence the reason most of the guys can be twits too. In fact two of the guys (Sal and Melvin) have no redeeming qualities at all. They are my Frank Burns / Neman characters, there so others can play off of their personalities quirks. The interesting thing in my mind at least is that why everybody in WD is flawed nobody is actually evil or a bad person. (Okay, accept maybe Melvin I really don’t like him.)

    Plus I can be really cynical by nature. :)

    I don’t think anyone is powerful enough to turn Rita into a genius.

    Ever heard of Lex Luthor? He’s a genius too, so is Doc Octopus. Made them better evil.

    There are plenty of things in the forest to use to reconfigure to be food. Even the air itself.

    Most of us have met real life versions of these personalities. With variations of course.

    Don’t forget the time she turned everyone into sacks of manure.

    One Rita is too much.

    But Melvin IS useful. There ARE total jerks like him in the workplace, so it’s worth having at least one supporting character to reflect that. The key to Melvin is how other characters react to him. Sal is more flexible, as he has a gullible side. He’s stupid in a different way from Melvin.
