  1. Starbursts (receptionists desk “take your daughter to work day”)
    Vodka (Christmas party)

  2. Even though you get extra points for putting office supplies in jello (I have actually done it a couple of times), you can also have Jello cups because that is what Jim is eating when he denies having anything to do with Dwight’s stapler.

    Also, from Drug Testing, a can of coke :-)

  3. Another drink: milk and sugar! Other snacks: French Onion chips. Also you could play The Office Trivia game or Office Clue!

  4. This is the best party guide I’ve ever seen!! Wow!! So cool! How about a coffee/latte machine like in Cafe Disco?

  5. Chocolate pudding cup, from The Injury! I even thought about sprinkling a little sugar on top, to represent the aspirin that Ryan put in because Michael was a little fussy. You’ll feel the blood coursing through your foot veins!

    [from tanster: lol, very clever with the sugar on top!]

  6. chicken pot pie
    mung bean sprouts
    blue flavored power drink
    filet o fish
    hot plate of garbage pizza by Alfredo
    soy milk
    Mayonnaise and olives
    roasted goose
    peanut butter sandwiches
    rhubarb pie
    brownies with and without nuts
    sausage egg and cheese biscuit

  7. Very important note: If you will be serving JELL-O, something MUST be encased in it… JELL-O is not a tribute to the Office unless there is something suspended in it.

  8. Breyer’s Ice cream, brought to you by Malone’s Cones
    Gabba-Gool with a side salad, but the salad better not be on top. (you’re on your own for this one)

  9. For drinks, you are missing ‘Scotch and Splenda!’ “Tastes like Splenda gets you drunk like Scotch.”

  10. Lol ! Thanks for posting this Tanster ! I have thought of more since then . . . .

    French toast (Dream Team)
    Square pancakes (Michael Scott Paper Company)
