The OfficeTally Dunder-ku Contest

“Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.” — Jim as Dwight, ‘Product Recall’

This, my fellow Office fanatics, is what I hereby dub a Dunder-ku — an offbeat version of its namesake — the haiku.

A Dunder-ku consists of four words, three of which must alliterate (start with the same letter).

The goal of this contest is to come up with your own Dunder-ku, describing any character on The Office.

  • Add your Dunder-ku in a comment to this post.

  • Prizes will be awarded waterfall style: the top vote-getter will get their choice of three prizes, the second-place vote-getter will get to choose from the remaining two prizes, and so on.
