Historical Discovery: Clay Carroll and Dwight Schrute

Some people, like Cardboard Gods’ Josh Wilker, understand what Montaigne meant when he said “chaque homme porte la forme entière de l’humaine condition”* and make it their business to articulate and catalogue those experiences that one might call “quintessentially human.”

*Translated roughly: “Americans are overweight.”

Other people, like those of us here at NotGraphs, notice when one person looks like another — like how former major-leaguer Clay Carroll looks a lot like Rainn Wilson as Dwight Schrute of TV’s The Office.

It’s all about choosing a life path, people.

Witness other Discoveries here. Also: big up yaself to my friend Ross, who made this historical discovery.

Carson Cistulli has published a book of aphorisms called Spirited Ejaculations of a New Enthusiast.
