'The Office': Why do men duel over Angela?

Posted on


Angelaoffice_lLast night’s episode of The Office, “Blood Drive,” revealed that Angela, the classy lady that she is, has been the point of interestin a love triangle in (at least) two states. John Mark and John David battled for her affection while she lived inOhio, and we all know about the famous face-off between Dwight and Andyearlier this season. All together now: “Not fair!”

I’m sick of hearing (from myself) that chivalry is dead. Okay, I guess it depends on your definition of chivalry, and mine is plain and simple: having two men duel over you. I can’t even remember the last time this happened to me…seeing as how it never has…. So what’s a girl got to do to get a duel in the works? Let’s take some cues from professional duel-instigator Angela. You could try simultaneously dating men with the same first name. Or being super mean to both of them. It couldn’t hurt to move to Scranton/Ohio. But most importantly, I think we all know what we need to do first: Get some cats. Now, I’m more of a dog person, but I’d be willing to pick up a few feline-themed calendars on my way home from work. But I draw the line at licking them…the cats, not the calendars. Well, both, I guess.

Anyone else out there hankering for a duel in their honor? Anyone actually have one? And what do you think Angela’s got that we don’t?
