Glamis thou art, and Cawdor; and shalt be
What thou art promised. Yet do I fear thy nature;
It is too full o' the milk of human kindness
To catch the nearest way...

I taught the play MACBETH for years to advanced high school juniors, and "The Coup" plays out a similar 'tragedy' in modern-day Scranton, PA (is that anywhere near Scotland, PA?).  In any event, when Michael drops the ball with Jan yet again (and really, is 30 minutes a week really such a terrible thing?), Lady MacAngela accosts Dwight and convinces him to make a play for Michael's job.

Needless to say, it doesn't go well for anyone.

Dwight, Dwight, Dwight... why on earth do you have such intimate knowledge of Jan's personal shopping habits?  Why did you order all of that food?  And why didn't you bring your D.W.I.G.H.T. (Determined, Worker, Intense, Good worker, Hard worker, Terrific) sign with you? 

Give Michael credit for being more clever than I thought possible... he let Dwight dig himself deeper and deeper into a hole from which the D-man could not escape.  Holy crap, that drool on his face when he stood up was priceless.

Lessons learned?

Don't @#$% with a man's Sebring.

Creed is icky.

Never invite Jim Halpert to your LAN party.

And remember to always-- ALWAYS-- hug it out, b!tch.*
