In fact, Dwight makes many claims in the show’s 9 seasons, including performing his own circumcision and being able to control his cholesterol with the power of his mind, none of which could ever be proven.
Dwight is known as one of TV’s greatest sidekicks because of his unwavering support of his office superior Michael Scott (played by Steve Carell). Dwight is also an expert at farm life. Being a survivalist, Dwight has trained himself in the art of agriculture and butchering.
