35 Challenges of the Office World

Many years ago, a few of my colleagues at work stumbled upon a list of challenge that you can do in the office that was absolutely hilarious. Mind you, these are not exactly your everyday challenges that you have and it actually involves people in the office, regardless whether they are aware of it or not!

check out the original list  here

So during that time, we actually made a "scavenger style" challenge for some of us in the office and went rampant in the office for one whole day. Granted we got into heaps of trouble by the management but it was so funny that even when we got called to the boss's room and got told off, we couldn't stop laughing thinking about it.

Last week, I decided to challenge the boys of #PagiRockCrew from my favorite morning radio station, Fly.Fm to undertake the same challenges that I did and see how they fair up for the challenge. The reason why I thought of this is because I knew the boys were nutjobs and they would be the first bunch that would be so up for this challenge.

This was my initial tweet.:

and thought nothing of it after. Earlier this morning, this was their response....

Now at this point it was as expected. Because the boys of #PagiRockCrew are notoriously known for their wacky awesome stunts, I believe that the challenges that was posed to the boys were way to easy for them and their legendary status of craziness....

[The #PagiRockCrew laughs at my challenge, while wearing a dress. That's how badass they are...]

So now I have a task to come up with wacky ideas to re-challenge the boys. Most of y'all out there would know, TeamTehTarik never backs down on a nutty challenge in the past and we are not going to start now. 

So, with the addition of some people who tweeted Fly.Fm, we have:

35 Trials and Challenges of the Office World

5 point challenges :
-Have a long toilet paper stuck in the back of your pants. When asked, reply "its the 'in' thing now..."

-Seduce a photocopier and make sure you get caught. When so, walk away while saying "I'll see you tonite" to the photocopier.

-Walk down to the cafeteria during lunch, go on your knees and scream "AS GOD IS MY WITNESS, I WILL NEVER GO HUNGRY AGAIN!" and walk away.

-Completely cover an male boss's office with Justin Bieber pictures and posters when absent. When he returns, play "Baby" in the background.

And there you have it folks, the number of challenges that I feel would at least challenge the boys for a run of their money. Who know how are they going to respond to this and quite frankly I am excited to see how they are going to respond to this!
