Here's what to wear to tonight's Pam-vs.-Karen showdown on 'The Office'

10503__tshirts_lShe may not be a globetrotting humanitarian/
Oscar-winning actress but "exotic" Karen (Rashida Jones) on The Office is the new "other woman" that folks love to hate. Camps have been forming for and against the Stamford temptress since she was introduced this season as the new love interest for our favorite paper pusher, Jim Halpert (John Krasinski). Many viewers aren’t ready to give up hope for a romance between Jim and office assistant Pam (Jenna Fischer) — no matter how many times she rolls her office chair all over his heart, turning up her cute litle nose, sputtering her indecisive, namby pamby pseudo-declarations… um where was I? Oh yeah, Now that the three of them are thrown together in tonight’s supersized merger episode, you can quite succinctly proclaim whose side you’re on with these t-shirts.  Can you guess which team I’m on?

Even if you’re not ready to take sides, you simply have to watch this Office fanvid set to Justin Timberlake’s "SexyBack." Who knew they danced so much on the show? It’s the funniest thing ever… even if you’re not a Justin fan.

So, whose shirt would you wear: Pam’s or Karen’s? Do you care enough to sport one? And what does it say about me that I find Michael dancing  to "SexyBack" with garbage cans on his feet really sexy? Don’t judge me too harshly…

    For now, Team Karen. It’s too soon for Jim and Pam to get together and I think Rashida Jones is gorgeous and really good on the show.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t see a bit of chemistry between John Krasinski and Rashida Jones? This isn’t because I’m on Team Pam! As a fan of the British Office, I was fully expecting another woman to come into the picture. However, while I don’t dislike Karen, I don’t understand where all the crazy Karen love comes from or where people see any chemistry at all between Karen and Jim…and I would have liked someone other than Pam to temporarily root for.

    There wasn’t much chemistry between Jim and Karen in the first few episodes. It’s getting better. Rumour has it that they’re dating.
    That being said, GO TEAM PAM!

    I’m rooting for Karen, although I hope they keep the triangle going for a long time. At first, I did not see much chemistry between Jim and her, but now, there is a little twinkle when they talk to each other. It’s very cute how she melted that tough exterior. I liked Pam a lot but she is too indecisive and toys with Jim too much. I don’t like it when people don’t go for what they want. You only have one life. Why waste it? But of course, toying with Jim will ultimately mean that she will prove utterly irresistible to him because a lot of men (generally speaking) love nothing more than a good chase. I also feel so sorry for Pam’s ex-fiancé. I didn’t like him last season, but this year, I think he’s kind of a hottie. Those sad puppy dog eyes looking at her are just so heart breaking.

    GO TEAM KAREN!!! All those on Team Pam should read up on what Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski who tend to agree that they’re characters don’t even belong together! But that’s neither here nor there. The truth of the matter is that Karen is freakin awesome and belongs with Jim! The End. lol

    TEAM PAM!!
    That being said, people keep telling me about how John K said that he doesn’t see Jim and Pam getting together, but where is the source for this? I’d really like to see it.

    OMG, it’s a good thing I’m the only one in the office right now, bc that fanvid had me busting out laughing HARD!!
    Team Pam all the way. She and Jim are perfect, though of course for the sake of the show I realize that it can’t happen YET. Plus, Karen has been growing on me, which I never thought would be possible. But still, I have a crazy girl crush on Pam, so she gets my vote.

  • Scott P

    TEAM PAM of course, although I have great respect for Team Karen.
    Of course he’ll be back with Pam though, who do you think she was text messaging at that party before she drove Michael home??

  • Ceballos

    Team Karen for now…Pam needs to see Jim and Karen flirt and, maybe even, date for a little while longer. Make her suffer for shattering my boy Jim’s heart.

  • Vicky

    I do like Karen, but I’ll always be a JAM fan. I still enjoy the sexual tension on the show so I say keep that going. The writers will know when to put them together.

  • Becca

    Team Pam always and forever! With that said, I do like Karen and I don’t mind her and Jim flirting a little bit. But Pam and Jim’s relationship is the heart and soul of this show.

  • Jeff

    Rashida and John really are dating

  • cj

    karen all the way.pam you had your chance girlfriend.

  • Marisa

    That fanvid makes more sense than the real video for SexyBack.

  • Howard

    Poor Jim, having two attractive (Pam’s cute on the show, but the picture that EW ran of her a few weeks ago put her at a whole ‘nother level) women vying for his affection. For now, I look at it like New York football: I root for both the Jets and Giants, and am pleased when either one wins. The difference here is that how one does in The Office affects the other a lot more than the Jets and Giants.
