Anything Mindy Kaling is obsessed with is worth paying attention to. Her latest obsession? Grad caps featuring the words of characters she’s played on TV.
Over the past few weeks, graduates have been plastering Mindy Kaling quotes all over their caps, and Mindy is absolutely eating it up. On Tuesday, the actress took to Twitter to write, “2018 Graduation is lit. Kelly would be proud.”

Most of the quotes are inspired by Kaling’s character, Kelly, on The Office. The most popular quote? “Guys, I’m like really smart now.” What better way to inform your parents you were worth the hundreds of thousands of dollars they spent on you over the last four years?
Other popular ones? “Who am I? The business bitch”, and, “I figure if I’m gonna be a mess I might as well be a hot mess.”
Kaling portrayed Kelly Kapoor on The Office from 2005 to 2013. Along with acting in the series, she served as an executive producer, writer, and from time to time, director. For her role on The Office, Kaling received a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series in 2010.
On top of that, she is known for writing, creating, producing, and starring in Fox and Hulu’s The Mindy Project. The show premiered on Fox on September 2012, and wrapped up in November 2017.
