Mafia in the The Office
Speaking of stereotypes, check out this clip from this past Thursday (most recent) episode of The Office, where Dwight and Andy convince Michael Scott that the insurance salesman is actually part of the mafia because he's Italian...
It's mostly at the time 4:30 is when they start talking about typical characteristics, but the entire episode revolves around Dwight and Andy's theory that he is a mobster. It's ridiculous, of course, but what else can you expect from the two?
