Filling up your day

When asked on the Today Show this morning why Internet video clips like this one gain popularity so quickly, an "expert" (on what I am not sure) said, "The average American worker can only spend so many hours a day playing solitaire, on-line poker and Scrabble. They need something else to fill up their day." Did anyone else pick up on what is glaringly wrong with this statement?

SCRABBLE? You're telling me that the average American worker is playing SCRABBLE as part of their daily time-wasting routines? Obviously the times have changed since I was in the workforce. If folks are playing Scrabble at work perhaps I should think seriously about returning to an office. Hey, had I known Scrabble was an option, I may never have left.
