I came across this article yesterday in the LA Times and knew I had to share. Hannah agreed.
One thing is certain- we love us some Parks and Recreation and we LOVE the character that is Ron Swanson.
There’s really no way to describe him, but this article paints a pretty amazing picture. If you don’t watch this show- go on Instant Netflix and start this series ASAP. In my opinion, the first season starts out a little slow- but hang in there! It gets soooo much better as you go. The cast is insane- Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson!), Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe etc. etc.
Just to give you an idea of why we love him, here are some of our favorite Ron quotes:
“When I eat, it’s the food that’s scared.”
“It reminds me of when my dad made me choose which of my pet calves to slaughter with my own hands for my 6th birthday. I couldn’t choose, so I slaughtered both of them. And they were delicious.”
“The less I know about other people’s affairs, the happier I am. I’m not interested in caring about people. I once worked with a guy for three years and never learned his name. Best friend I ever had. We still never talk sometimes.”
“I won’t publicly endorse a product unless I use it exclusively. My only official recommendations are U.S. Army issued mustache trimmers, Morton’s salt, and the C.R. Lawrence Fein two inch axe-style scraper oscillating knife blade.”
“You had me at meat tornado.”
Trust us, you will not regret watching.

DISCLAIMER: No, we do not in any way work for this show. However, we probably wish that we did.
