The holiday spirit isn't reserved for one's friends and family -- co-workers may get in on the festivities, too. Potlucks and holiday parties usually lead to people bringing food to the office. In some cases, this is a great perk ... but if your co-workers aren't good cooks, it can go haywire.

This happened to not just any group of employees, but several Canadian news anchors.

Four Global News Calgary anchors sampled homemade artichoke dip ... but they weren't happy about it. Global News uploaded a clip to YouTube:

Global News shared the fateful moment on Twitter:
