I wanted so badly to like Parks and Recreation when it first came on; but it not only lacked funny, it was also pretty snoresville. So it was with great trepidation that I resumed watching Season 2, after hearing people everywhere say: ‘It’s really funny’. And now I say to you, dear reader, it is really funny.

And the comic heart of this loveable crew is Ron Swanson: a tough-loving man’s man who was born to hunt. I expect there to be a Ron Swanson craze any moment now, somehwat akin to the Bart Simpson Product Tsunami of my youth.
