‘The Office’ and Mindy Kaling Fans Need These Hilarious Kelly Kapoor Memes

One of the most beloved comedies of all-time is NBC’s The Office, which follows the lives and laughs of the Scranton branch of paper company Dunder Mifflin. The show has produced hundreds of amazing moments, many of which have been immortalized in meme form. It is difficult to defeat the boss of Office memes, Michael Gary Scott (Steve Carell), but there is an underrated character that can give him a run for his money. That is one of the funniest characters on the show, the extremely meme-able Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling).

The Office is a mockumentary-style show that shows the comedy and beauty that can be found in a stupid, wonderful, boring, amazing 9:00 to 5:00 job. The focus of the program is the cast of zany and lovable characters that make up Dunder Mifflin Scranton.

The show also features a number of fan-favorite romances including Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) and Angela Martin (Angela Kinsey), Michael Scott, and Holly Flax (Amy Ryan), Stanley Hudson (Leslie David Baker) and Pretzel Day (Soft Delicious Pretzels), and of course Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) and Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer). Kelly also has a long-standing relationship in the show, but not one that makes fans believe in true love like the others.

Kelly Rajanigandha Kapoor is the customer service representative for Dunder Mifflin, but a boring day job just barely begins to describe her. Kelly loves to dish on the latest gossip, both in the office and the world of pop culture, and her boyfriend Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak).

Kelly’s on-again, off-again relationship with Ryan is one of the biggest parts of her on-screen character, and the two even run off together in the series finale. Both Kaling and Novak, as well as Paul Lieberstein who played Toby Flenderson, pulled double-duty as they all were both writers and actors for the show.

After her time starring and writing on the show, Kaling moved onto her own sitcom The Mindy Project. Now, Kaling is one of the most recognizable comedic voices in the world.

It was recently announced that she will be writing the script for the third Legally Blonde film, starring Kaling’s Once Upon A Time co-star, Reese Witherspoon. 

The best Kelly Kapoor memes 

Kelly is one of the most memorable and meme-able characters in the entire show. Her hilarious relatable reactions and facial expressions are comedic gold. Here are some of the most iconic Kelly memes in the show’s nine seasons. 

Who wouldn’t enjoy an hour of nap-time while at work? One of the most well-known memes in Office history is Dwight’s less than festive birthday sign that plainly reads “IT IS YOUR BIRTHDAY.” Kelly is the birthday girl that the sign is meant to celebrate, but what is a party without a theme?

Kelly is always honest about herself and others, even if what she’s saying might not be the most helpful thing to say when interviewing for the manager’s job. 

Life can be boring for someone like Kelly, especially when she has to work at a boring job like Dunder Mifflin.  

After completing Sabre’s Print In All Colors initiative, Kelly got really smart. 

How is Kelly getting through quarantine? Most likely watching the awesome Love Actually on Netflix. 

Kelly is never afraid to ask the tough questions. 

It can be tough to do it all, but Kelly puts on a brave face every day and does her best. 

It will be interesting to see if Kelly, and other favorite characters, will return to the possible The Office revival, that may or may not be in the works.
