YANKEE SWAP IS LIKE MACHIAVELLI MEETS . . . CHRISTMAS: I don't know when you'll see a funnier hour of television than tonight's The Office combo of "The Injury" and "Christmas Party".
The former is just plain loopy and brilliant as Dwight deteriorates, while the latter is a supporting character showcase with significant roles for Angela, Meredith, Creed, Toby, Kevin, Darryl and a pair of elven ears. Does Meredith love alcohol ("The deal is that this is my last hurrah 'cause I made a New Year's resolution that I'm not going to drink anymore . . . during the week") more than Michael loves his morning bacon? Oh, it's all good.
