"The Office" joked about newspaper paywalls — specifically the one at Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal — on Thursday night's episode.

"Hello everyone, I'm sure you've seen the article in the Journal. Just want to stress it's all conjecture," Dwight quoted from an e-mail sent to all Dunder Mifflin employees.

"Erin, do we have the journal?" Michael asked.

"Your feelings journal? You told me to put it in the time capsule," she replied.

"Michael, he means the Wall Street Journal online," Pam corrected him.

"Oh, the Wall," he said.

"I've found the article!" Oscar shouted, but when the team ran over to his desk, they found only a stub of the whole article.

"It's $1.99 to finish the article," Michael said. "I wonder what it was gonna say."
