Like many college folks with good taste in television, I have watched more of The Office than I’d like to admit (both to myself and to my parents).
It starts with a quick episode between schoolwork, which leads to another, which inevitably leads to a 3-week marathon of watching the show from beginning to end. While The Office is known for its charm, wit, and entertainment value, it also offers viewers with some unparalleled food-related humor. Here are (some) of the best food scenes in The Office.
10. When Nellie Tries to Eat a Taco
While nobody looks good when eating a taco, Nellie surely takes the cake (taco?) for being the most awkward. Although, in fairness, there are worse things that one could do to befriend Darryl.
9. When Jim Pranks Dwight
Who could forget Jim’s classic prank?
8. When Dwight Pranks Jim
Dwight finally gets his revenge. He and Stanley team up to convince Jim that meatball pranks are funny. Little does Jim know, he is just providing Dwight and Stanley with dinner.
7. When the Michael Scott Paper Company has Talent
This is a beautiful moment, which leads to the question: How many takes did it take to film it?
6. When Angela Disses Andy
Angela’s heart is about as cold as the ice cream that she smashes on Andy’s car. Not only did she cheat on Andy with Dwight, but she also ruined a perfectly good ice cream.
5. When Dwight is a Comedian
Step aside, Jim. There’s a new funny guy at the office.
4. When Stanley Just Does Not Care
Everyone should aspire to care as much as Stanley does.
3. When Michael Carbo-Loads
Michael Scott sure does know how to carbo-load. Instead of carbo-loading the night before like a chump, Michael downs a hearty portion of pasta alfredo only minutes before running a 5K.
2. When Kevin Eats a Vegetable
Poor Kevin. Sweet, sweet Kevin. Little did he know how much trouble his New Year’s resolution to eat more vegetables would get him into.
1. When Kevin Embodies How College Students Feel All the Time
Kevin spilling his homemade chili is arguably one of the saddest moments of The Office. It’s just too real.
