  1. Omg stop capitalizing prepositions in your titles, it hurts my eyes

  2. if that wheel were at my workplace, it'd just be wedge after wedge of "You're working through lunch, lackies!"

  3. that wheel is a great idea except that I'm too much of a lazy bastard to actually make it

  4. tbh i kind of hate the idea that everyone has to eat lunch together tho. youre working with these people all the time, cant you choose an hour of quiet and eating alone or even with a friend you meet up with, eating exactly the food you want? i dont get the communal lunch thing … lunch is a break from work not an extension of it imho

  5. "At The Office those guys were welcoming… but it was terrifying." How so?

  6. ok – so what I want to know – does everyone buy their own at lunch – or does the company pay?? serious question

  7. I love Mindy with all my heart. ❤️ But I just wish she used more of her South Indian heritage on screen. Enough of these Lahiris and Kapoors and Patels Mindy.. pretty please 🙏🙌

  8. She took a shot of him and that was so funny. Yep please turn your phone off !!!!!! We could not hear the end of the story about Emma so WTF Stephen I will not be able to sleep tonight OMG :):)

  9. Anyone else get the vibe she is just not a nice person? Just an opinion, not trolling. Feel free to disagree.

  10. The watch is back on Stephen's wrist… Hmmm
    Looks like he got a call from Tim Apple in the intermission.

  11. I watched both clips of Mindy talking to Stephen and didn’t hear the end of Mindy’s Emma Thompson story. Did she finish it? Anyone know the rest of the story?

  12. A preview to the Roast of Stephen Colbert 0:40

    Hosted by Mindy Kaling

  13. I'm pretty sure Stanley, Oscar, and Daryl showed up about the same time that she did on the office…

  14. We’re so going to adopt Wheel of Lunch at my office now. This is gonna happen.

  15. Mindy Kaling AND "Woman With The Milky Way On Her Dress"

  16. Is she wearing a fat suit for the interview? What happened to her?

  17. Mindy should be placed at the border to speak: her voice would scare away any immigrants, much cheaper than the wall!!

  18. Here I was thinking 1:15 she'd be like "until about two minutes ago."

  19. It is always fun to WATCH INTELLECTUAL PEOPLE with the right credentials. Love Mindy

  20. Omg her hair! 😍 she looks amazing in that dress. Goalsgoalsgoals

  21. I tell ya, the films and t.v shows trying to cash in on the so called "me2" movement are terrible and, worse than that, intellectually dishonest and just plain wrong. It's a film about Writers who, for some reason, are only able to write about a very narrow area of human experience, that they have experienced first hand. This is because Writers are unable to use their imaginations, and put themselves in other peoples shoes. Before Tolkien wrote The Hobbit he travelled extensively in Middle Earth and was personally acquainted with Bilbo and Gandalf.

  22. That Wheel of Lunch idea's great! It probably takes less time than working out where an office full of opinionated eaters go for lunch. Too many vetos? Then up the starting cost. But PLEASE take off some of those chains! (McDonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell, Subway…) Maybe put em all on one spot and let the spinner choose from among them.

  23. I don't find her funny. She's just not. It's not because she was Kelly. She's just not particularly humorous.

  24. how did you guys keep her from shitting on the street ? asking for a friend

  25. How did the watch get back on his wrist at 0:04? and then stayed off his wrist? I know about the power of editing, but did they just CGI the watch off?

  26. Is it just me, or has she put on a lot of weight recently? She looked so different on Colbert from what i remember her looking like. Wonder if she is pregnant again….
