If you're a diehard fan of a comedy series, there's nothing like following along every episode and being rewarded with running jokes that feel like they were written just for you. Whether you quote these running jokes to your friends, watch YouTube compilations of them over and over, or just feel a sense of superiority when you catch one that no one else would, a good recurring bit on TV is like nothing else. 

For fans of The Office, the best running jokes are all at once bizarre, annoying, and deceptively simple. The funniest running jokes on The Office would seem incredibly childish to the people who have only seen a few episodes of the show, but to those of us who follow along with the cringiest comedy of all time, they are masterpieces threaded throughout a high-bond copy paper piece of genius. The Office jokes that we love are there for us through the ups and the downs, the off-the-wall humor and the heartbreaking drama, all rooted in the characters that we love to hate spending time with and love even more to laugh at. And in 2019, NBC released the full length picture of Michael Scott's Threat Level Midnight

So put on your best mustard-colored shirt, head over to Dunder Mifflin, and try not to laugh too hard at what you're about to see (that's what she said), because it's time to give out the Dundie Award for the best running jokes on The Office.
