    Default The Ron Swanson appreciation thread

    At this point, I am killing time until Thursday so I thought I would start a thread on my favorite character on TV today, Ron Swanson.

    Swanson is played by Nick Offerman and he and his mustache fill the role perfectly. He's the epitome of a boss who doesn't give a shit.

    I worry what you just heard was, "give me a lot of bacon and eggs." What I said was, "give me all the bacon and eggs you have." Do you understand?

    "I enjoy government functions like I enjoy getting kicked in the nuggets with a steel toed boot. But this hotel always served bacon wrapped shrimp. That's my number one favorite food wrapped around my number three favorite food. I'd go to a banquet in honor of those Somali pirates if they served bacon wrapped shrimp."

    My cat Brimley actually got posted recently, he's right under the "Duke Silver" cat in the cowboy hat.

    The ONLY bad part about leaving for Coachella tomorrow afternoon is that I am going to miss the new Parks and Recreation in the evening.

    If you're bringing laptops, you might be able to watch them on Hulu sometime during the weekend (although I really don't know how long it takes after the episode airs for it to be available).

    Yesterday I overheard somebody talking about Hulu and they pronounced it like "hue loo." Hyulu. Hyoolu. It was oddly startling. I also like Ron Swanson.

    "Indianapolis is home to Charles Mulligan's Steakhouse, the best damn steakhouse in the damn state. I have taken a picture of every steak I've ever eaten there. June 2004: Porterhouse, medium rare, Bearnaise sauce. January 2000: They call this one, The Enforcer. February '96: The steak ribeye. The Whiskey: Lagavulin 16. The lady next to me? A bitch. Specifically, my ex-wife Tammy. OK, this is the first I ever went there. Look at me. Just a kid."

    He wasn't British. He was one of those aging "cool" guys who shaves his head so you don't know how bald he is and doesn't take his leather jacket off even though the venue's volcanically hot. A Californian, I think they call them.

    shaved head and leather jacket? California holds no exclusive title to that.


    And I'm fairly certain Ron Swanson would not treat with this person.

    It's a bacon wrapped turkey leg. They call it a Swanson.
