If you were a fan of The Office you remember a few things: Michael Scott liked to make “That’s what she said jokes” Creed was a weirdo, and Jim liked to pull long, elaborate pranks on Dwight — which in some cases saw him spiraling out of control. From the subtle beginnings, when Jim put Dwight’s stapler in Jello, to later more elaborate endeavors like framing Dwight for murder, the pranks brought endless joy to viewers each week. For Labor Day, I’ve ranked the ten best office pranks Jim pulled over the course of the show.

7. When he hired a Ben Franklin impersonator instead of a male stripper. Episode: “Ben Franklin”

When Jim was asked to get strippers to come to Dunder Mifflin for Phyllis’ bachelorette party, he hires  a Benjamin Franklin impersonator instead– and Dwight isn’t totally convinced it’s not the real Ben Franklin.

6. When he convinced Dwight he was a vampire. Episode “Business School”

After Jim tells Dwight that he might have been bitten by a bat, Dwight begins to believe Jim is turning into a vampire. Jim further plays it up by being blinded by the light from Angela’s cross, and saying that Karen’s garlic bread burns him. Bonus: Joss Whedon directed!
