Lil Wayne? Is that anything like Li'l Sebastian on Parks and Rec?
Not quite... this one...
Mary J. Blige has a new single out with him and Diddy on it... not too shabby...
I was just plugging the best comedy on TV right now. If you don't watch it, try it on for size. Ron Swanson might quickly become your favorite character on TV.
Here's an exchange with his ex-wife:
Tammy: Guess I'll be heading home.
Ron: Catching the number twelve bus to Satan's butthole?
Tammy: Actually I prefer the number 69 train to Humpsville Station.
And another quote from when he was about to be interviewed by a 9-year-old for a school project:
Ron: It's never too early to learn that the government is a greedy piglet that suckles on a taxpayer's teet until they have sore, chapped nipples. I'm gonna need a different metaphor to give this nine year old.
And when he's challenged for a best-tasting burger by Rob Lowe (who made a low-fat turkey burger with fancy trimmings):
Ron: Here's mine. It's a hamburger made out of meat on a bun with nothing. Add ketchup if you want I couldn't care less.
And this is what set up the challenge:
Chris: Have you ever tried a turkey burger?
Ron: Is that a fried turkey leg inside a grilled hamburger? If so, yes, delicious.
One last one, I promise. This one is best with the accompanying video, but I have no time to look for it:
Ron: 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 Wing Dang Doodle. Specifically, my ex-wife Tammy. OK, this is the first I ever went there. Look at me. Just a kid.
