‘The Office’ 2.0: A hilariously elaborate Web fiction

The Wonder Glen website gives visitors a peek behind the (dysfunctional) scenes at a (fictional) “film, television, and new-media company,” where the backstabbing, quibbling, rumors, and failed attempts at “growing” team spirit are hilariously familiar.

Think of the multifaceted, superdetailed send-up of corporate culture as
a smart, funny adjunct to the deadpan satires we’ve come to expect from people like Christopher Guest and Ricky Gervais. But we’ll let you in on a secret: Half the fun consists of trying to figure out who the site’s actual authors and owners are. (Yes, we know — but, irritatingly, we’ve been sworn to secrecy.)
