(Newser) – After 5 years of the will-they-or-won't-they dance, Jim and Pam of The Office will tie the knot in the Oct. 8 episode, and the prenuptial PR blitz has sent one blogger around the bend. "We're already sick of these two insufferable lovebirds," enemy of drawn-out romance Brian Moylan writes for Gawker. "Christ, it took them two years just to freakin' kiss! And now their engagement, which has been prolonged since last season's premiere, is the same way."

The last straw seems to have been the cover of next week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features the happy fake couple sporting daisies behind their ears. "Jim and Pam are everyman anchors in a sitcom full of crazy people," Moylan grouses. "That makes them just like the cashiers at the supermarket: you're glad that they're there, you have to be nice to them, but you really don't care about what happens to them outside of work."
