Michael Scott had many humanitarian causes he cared about, such as making sure underprivileged urban youth had a full ride through college (or at least a fresh laptop battery), that he could bring a Scranton party atmosphere to an otherwise boring convention at a hotel, and to honor the memory of prior Dunder Mifflin managers as well as fallen birds who died in the parking lot.
However, none seemed as important to him as curing rabies. Going so far as to carbo-load and set up a 5K fun run to raise awareness to the cause, Michael Scott knew how serious the disease could be. Unfortunately, a woman in Sweden, and apparently her doctors, had not heard about the “Michael Scott’s Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run Race for the Cure” and succumbed to the deadly virus that claims 4 American lives a year. Was that $700 that was raised, by Jan through Michael, with $200 going to an oversized check, all for naught?
Let this be a lesson to us all, don’t play with stray dogs and not expect to get rabies. It may seem like a joke, but Michael Scott was once again ahead of his time in seeing just how incredibly fatal it could be. Don’t be fooled by this current Measles epidemic thats infecting only the morons too stupid to get vaccinated for it ahead of time, focus on the silent killer in the world, one thats carried in bats and cute stray dogs, and maybe one day we can see Michael Scotts hopes and dreams come true and live in a world without rabies.
