I hope you all brought your number two pencils today, always-prepared readers of mine, because we’re starting off this lovely Wednesday with a little pop quiz. Ready?
This post is based on a fictional funny named town because:
a) (the older) Carlson issued an Amber Alert in his latest post and amb would like to continue the cycle of mutual mentionitis;
b) (the younger) Carlson is scandalized by the amount of flirting that happens on Wednesdays and amb would like to continue working here;
c) Amb watches too much TV;
d) All of the above
Have you got the answer? I’ll give you a hint – it’s d).
Yes, the cast members of the sitcom “Parks and Recreation” are up to bat today, since I’m all flibbertigibbety over the fact that Dave manages to keep track of my ridiculous television viewing habits, and since I wanted Rob to be able to read one of my posts without blushing.
Rob, honey, this is for you:
This masculine specimen of mustachioed magnificence is American actor, writer, and carpenter Nick Offerman. Nick’s Blog of Funny Names bona fides are courtesy of the women in his life – he’s married to Megan Mullally, and is dating Lucy Lawless on tv. I love him because, mustache. (If you missed his brilliant Movember awareness campaign, you can see it here).
He also holds a special place in my heart because I think that Nick’s character on “Parks and Recreation”, Ron Swanson (who lives in the above mentioned Pawnee), has one of the best worldviews on television today:
How much do I love that this man puts “romantic love” on the same level of manly greatness as “deer protein”?!? I swoon. And crave venison.
The fine folks of Pawnee are also played by Aubrey Plaza (whose fabulous name has been mentioned here before) and Aziz Ansari, who is something of a funny names aficionado himself:
And finally, I have to close out this post by giving a special shout out to Jean-Ralphio Saperstein. My man Jean is actually a fictional character on the show and not a real person, but, you know, tomato, tomato.
Or as Aziz might say, tomato, soulja boy tell ’ems.
