Michael Scott’s 18 Topping Pretzel From ‘The Office’ Probably Looked Like This

The Office’s titular character Michael Scott definitely found hundreds of ways to be totally unproductive during his tenure as Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch manager. On one particular occasion, he and co-worker Stanley Hudson waited nearly an entire work day for a complimentary pretzel, as it was “Pretzel Day” for employees in their office building. Scott ended up ordering an 18 topping pretzel that sent him into a sugar coma for the remainder of the day. It sounded delicious, but we never got to see what it really looked like—until now.

Youtube channel Binging With Babish, purveyors of fictional food recipes, recreated Michael Scott’s pretzel in a recent episode. Host Andrew Rea made sure that every topping, from the peanut butter drizzle to the cotton candy and OREOs, made its way on top. After just piling them all on in a fashion akin to how the pretzel man probably did it on the show, Rea also created his own Instagram-worthy version of the treat.

Not gonna lie, that pretzel actually looks pretty scrumptious. It would definitely make me enjoy Pretzel Day as much as Stanley did before the diabetic sugar coma kicks in.

Chili’s Just Lifted Pam Halpert’s Lifetime Ban And Won The Internet

In the first episode for season 2 of the beloved TV show “The Office,” a famed fictional character who worked for Dunder Mifflin Paper Company was banned from Chili’s Grill & Bar for getting a little too drunk during an awards ceremony.

Today, Chili’s has officially welcomed Pam Beesly Halpert back into its restaurants.

This ban was lifted following a tweet from Halpert’s alter ego (actress), Jenna Fischer, which showed her outside of a Chili’s restaurant, asking if she should go inside.

After the tweet went viral, obviously from fans hoping to get Pam back into the restaurant (or just missing the good old days of ‘The Office’), Chili’s decided to do the noble thing and lift their ban in an official press statement:

“Effective immediately, Chili’s Grill & Bar has removed the longstanding ban on a Scranton, Pennsylvania woman who allegedly caused a disturbance during a company awards party held at a Chili’s near the Pennsylvania town of Scranton. […] “After reviewing the good conduct of Pam, I have decided to lift the now 11-year ban,” said Kelli Valade, President of Chili’s. “Pam is an inspiration to many and we welcome her with open arms.”

Of course, Chili’s has won the internet over with this awesome commitment to fans of “The Office,” and we’re all happy that Pam can finally go back in to mooch drinks off of other people.

That’s actually what Jenna Fischer was thinking, as well.

Just take it easy in there, Pam, we don’t want to see you get thrown out again. Although that would make for a great encore episode.


LA Kings Sent Dwight Schrute Free Tickets, Encased in Jello

Looks like the new Hollywood heroes of the NHL, the LA Kings, and actor Rainn Wilson are mutual fans.

Rainn, the actor who plays Dwight Schrute from the NBC tv series The Office put a Tweet out expressing his interest in attending his first hockey game. Minutes later, the @LAKings account replied that they could hook him up with some tickets, only if they deliver the tickets in a bowl of jello.

For fans of The Office, and for those that aren’t, here’s a quick recap as to why this stunt is amusing (outside of…well, tickets in a bowl of Jello):




Rumored Schrute Farms ‘Office’ Spinoff in the Works

Bears eat beets. Bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica?… Don’t you know what that means? Everyone loves beets! And what’s a better way to increase your daily intake of beets than a show about the Schrute Family Beet Farm and Bed & Breakfast?

This potential spin-off of the long running television show The Office is proposed to air midseason 2013 and will star the potentially over-qualified beet farmer played by actor Rainn Wilson. But don’t worry Office fans, this doesn’tt mean Dwight Schrute will be leaving Dunder Mifflin anytime soon to farm full time.



Moments Where Michael Scott Talks With Food In His Mouth

You say slow news day? We say “valuable food case study through the eyes of contemporary television media.” Michael Scott, a fictional character played by Steve Carell, is one of the most iconic group leaders in recent television history. Incompetent and oblivious to his surroundings, The Office‘s Michael Scott often carries out his corporate functions in the most ridiculous of manners.

One humble YouTube artist under the alias , took to his video craft to recapture many of the moments were Michael Scott seems to be talking with food in his mouth. Often times, Michael will find his mouth full when he’s facing extreme pressure or dealing with a saddening or dire situation.

There’s something extremely curious about watching Michael speak and get his emotions across with a mouth full of food. More than likely, watching someone eat food attributes a level of realism to said character, particularly effective when given to a character who at times is so completely unrealistic.

Ladies and gentleman, Michael Scott:


Shawn O’Conner: Celebrity Pumpkin Carvings

Dwight Schrute from NBC’s The Office is just one of many celebrities that artist Shawn O’Conner, a New York native, has carved into a pumpkin. Some of his other celeb victims include Dr. Greg House, Jimi Hendrix and Mr. Johnny Cash. Shawn O’Conner is putting my mutilated pumpkin carving to shame, very impressive!
