    Every journalists dream come true. Almost free ice cream!

    Apparently the ice cream machine in the break room has Oreo Cookie bars for a quarter and Klondike bars for 50 cents.

    I partook in the Klondike bar special.

    Good choice, Tommy. I don't know if that's the route I would have went, but there really wasn't a wrong decision there.

    When I worked at a hotel, I found a malfunctioning Pepsi machine. The sodas were four for the price of one. I got someone to cover the desk, and I loaded up my bookbag with 16 20-ouncers. Looking back, the only thing I'd change was the money: Why did I use my own?

    Remember the annoying jingle...What would you do for a Klondike Bar?

    They are scrumptiously delicious, however.

    I thought that was for a Kit-Kat Bar?

    They are 1.50 where I work. That's like an hours pay.

    I found a similar three for one deal back in middle school. Fifty cents for the first one... 50 cents for two more. The regular price was a dollar. This worked for like 4 years. I never told anyone.

    Don't rat me out.

    Thanks, 'beetus. I forgot what Kit Kat's was and it was going to piss me off until I found out. :D

    Andy Bernard: Best ad ever, 'gimme a break, gimme a break, break me off a piece of that--' I am totally blanking. What is the thing?

    Jim Halpert: Nobody tell him!

    Andy Bernard: Wh- no, why?

    Jim Halpert: You got it. You're so close.

    Andy Bernard: ... It has to rhyme with 'piece'. 'Break me off a piece of that ... Fancy Feast.' That's it! It's cat food.

    Andy Bernard: Break me off a piece of that...Chrysler car? Football cream?

    Andy Bernard: Break me off a piece of that...Grey Poupon?
