The 10 Best Pranks from “The Office”

No TV show exemplifies the cubicle world quite like The Office. In honor of April Fool’s Day–and pranks in general–we’ve compiled ten of the best pranks from The Office. Jim and Dwight, of course, play central roles in each of these fantastic pranks.

Stapler in Jell-O

Dwight finds out that Jim put his stapler and other supplies inside a Jell-O mold.

Dwight Times Two

Jim comes to work dressed up as Dwight, then starts acting like him.

Vending Machine

Jim puts Dwight’s office supplies into the vending machine.

Dwight’s Phone

Jim pairs his headset with Dwight’s cell phone. Dwight gets even more angry when he finds out Jim has forwarded Dwight’s calls to his own office phone.

The Salesman of the Year Speech

When Dwight wins the Salesman of the Year award, Jim gives him a copy of a Mussolini speech to read. Much to Jim’s surprise, the speech is a hit.

Dwight’s Merry Christmas

Jim gift wraps Dwight’s desk, chair, and other office supplies, just in time for the holidays.

The Gaydar

Jim orders a Gaydar for Dwight, who wants to find out who in the office is gay. Dwight, however, is not happy when he scans himself.

The Future Dwight

Jim starts faxing letters to Dwight from “The Future Dwight.” Dwight really thinks they’re coming from the future–and some of his coworkers suffer as a result.

Pavlov’s Dwight

Jim brainwashes Dwight into wanting an Altoid every time he hears the computer log in sound.

Jim the Vampire

Dwight thinks Jim was bitten by a bat trapped in the office…and is now turning into a vampire.

    hi drea: you should put together a post with the funniest videos from congress: you could start with this:

    Rep. Hank Johnson: Guam could ‘tip over and capsize’ – CSpan video – Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) is afraid that the U.S. Territory of Guam is going to “tip over and capsize” due to overpopulation. Johnson expressed his worries during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the defense budget Thursday. Addressing Adm. Robert Willard, who commands the Navy’s Pacific Fleet, Johnson made a tippy motion with his hands and said sternly, “My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.” Willard paused and said: “We don’t anticipate that.” Like other islands, Guam is attached to the sea floor, which makes it extremely unlikely that it will tip over, even if there are lots and lots of people on it. Guam is 30 miles long and up to 9 miles wide in certain spots, with a population of 175,000 civilians. The military is proposing the addition of 8,000 U.S. servicemembers and their families.

    I believe the best office prank ever is not on here: the one where Jim puts nickels in Dwight’s phone over time, then removes them so he hits himself in the face with the phone.

    I know the jim and dwight pranks are great but how could you leave out jim’s prank on andy when he throws his cell phone into the ceiling.

  • Ive seen about 10 episodes of the British version but I perfer the American version because the Dwight is way better. Also I can relate more with the culture because I’m American.
