12. This article in the Dunder Mifflin Employee Newsletter is filled with delightful fake words and sentences from the prop department.

Excerpt: "As anybody can easily tell, this newsletter doesn't really have a lot to say. It's really just a prop to fill some space and sort of look like a newsletter without really being much of a newsletter at all... In fact, at times we can probably get away with not using real english words, such as kjgavbiwiwpo, avcviqvck, or the much beloved dfbiouvsuiegphenlk."

As Reddit user iDontGiveAFrak noticed, Jim paid $11 for his Dwight outfit ($4 for the glasses and $7 for everything else)...and later on in the episode, Angela makes fun of Kevin for not knowing that four plus seven is eleven. Good job, Jim.
