What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen in a “Terms and Conditions” agreement? The list is seemingly endless. Besides SNL jokes about Satan owning your soul if you don’t read them closely enough, there are countless real-world examples, including the case of someone who made $10,000 by noticing the right clause in the fine print.
Terms and conditions have also been turned into critically acclaimed graphic novels. And, as one TikTok user discovered, you can also learn a way to make chili if you know where to look.
As Digg noted, a TikTok user recently learned that the terms and conditions for the streaming service Peacock contains something of an Easter egg for fans of beloved television comedies: the receipt for Kevin’s famous chili as seen on The Office.
“At Peacock, we don’t make promises we can’t keep. So, please see below for the chili recipe inspired by Kevin Malone’s legendary family dish, which he so memorably brought to Dunder Mifflin on The Office,” the text read — followed by a detailed recipe.
For the full The Office experience, you could then spill the chili on a carpet and use various office supplies to put it back in its container, but we do not recommend that.
As noted by McKenzie Floyd, who shared this information online, the recipe is found within the larger Terms and Conditions; they are neither how they begin nor end. But hey, the weather’s still cold, and chili remains delicious.
