10 Things From "The Office" That I Wish Were Real

"The Office" goes beyond just humor, heart, and bunches of paper.

10 Things From "The Office" That I Wish Were Real

Since it first aired in 2005, “The Office” has cemented itself as a classic American comedy series. With over the top workplace shenanigans and an inefficient boss, many of us are left thinking “Thank God I don’t work at a place like that.” Nevertheless, the universe of “The Office” has some pretty cool stuff that I wish really existed.

1. Pretzel Day.

The episode where we all related to Stanley more than ever before. Although Pretzel day does exist (mark your calendar for April 26th), it’d be nice if every workplace observed the holiday like the Scranton Business Park.

2. Princess Unicorn.

My horn can pierce the sky! If only something like this existed during my childhood. You can never go wrong with a princess doll or a toy unicorn. However, a toy with the royalty of a princess combined with the magic of unicorn is a game changer.

3. Prison Mike.

Underneath that hard exterior lies a gentle soul. I think we’d all learn something about ourselves, the prison system, and dementors if given the chance to speak with this reformed convict.

4. Belsnickle.

Have you been impish or admirable? If children were raised with the frightening Belsnickle instead of jolly Santa, we’d have less of these darned millennials buying avocado toast over houses.

5. Suck It.

Maybe a better name for David Wallace’s invention is needed, but it’s not a bad idea. A vacuum tube designed for children that cleans their room for them couldn’t possibly have any safety hazards.

6. Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration.

Bob and Phyllis are one of the most overlooked couples of the show. Let’s not forget that in the Crime-Aid episode of season 6, Bob Vance paid a thousand dollars just to hug Phyllis. Jim and Pam who?

7. Threat Level Midnight.

Michael Scott gifted us with a masterpiece in season seven. There’s been a lot of buzz about a potential Office reunion, but I’d rather see Michael’s lifelong dream turn into a reality.

8. "Somehow I Manage" By Michael Scott.

Michael’s famed unpublished memoir on his life and management style. The cover even features a picture of Michael shrugging. It shouldn’t take very long for it to hit bookstores, as he’s already written it all in his head.

9. Charles Miner.

He was kind of a jerk to Jim, but it wasn’t completely undeserved given that he’s known to slack. I just wish that I had a boss that was an exact replica of Idris Elba, that’s all.

10. Belles, Bourbon, and Bullets.

There’s been a murder in Savannah, I do declare! In season 6 episode 10, Michael pulls out a murder mystery board game known as Belles, Bourbon and Bullets. Characters include Caleb Crawdad, Deb U. Tante, and Voodoo Mama JuJu

"The Office" is a show that will forever be in the hearts of its fans. Someday, maybe some of these neat ideas will be in our hands.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.
