'The Office' premiered its eighth season last night, and for the second year in the a row, the employees of Dunder Mifflin are just catching onto something that's already old news on the internet.

The folks in Scranton may be just getting around to enjoying a fad the rest of us were sick of months ago, but what they lack in hipness they make up for in enthusiasm.
