    You’re right, it’s Office Space. I was confusing it with Along Came Polly.

    It warms my heart to know there is someone more OCD than me!

    Movie with Jennifer Anniston and that girl who plays Grace on Will and Grace?

    I’m guessing you didn’t have a lot of friends…

    Normally, the winged animals flying out of someone’s rear are monkeys, not bunnies. I think this is just another example of how immigrant bunnies are taking jobs from American monkeys.

    At least for a while, dogs were considered canis lupus familiaris (not canis familiaris), meaning they were a variety (subspecies) of the gray wolf.

    If you want to be uber-technical, that’s actually a meta-use, not a use. For example “ice is frozen water” is a valid use, whereas “ice has three letters” (meaning “the word ‘ice’ has three letters”) is a meta-use. An easy way to see this: if the second usage were non-meta, you could combine the two sentences to get “frozen water has three letters” (example courtesy Martin Gardner, RIP).

    In the Catholic calendar, every day is a Saint’s day (some of saints being famous enough that non-Catholics know of the day as well). Official source: https://www.vaticannews.va/en/saints/03/17.html — less official but easier to read source: https://www.franciscanmedia.org/sod-calendar/ — the fact that they use ‘sod’ as an abbreviation for ‘saint of the day’ amuses me.
