Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness

According to my wife, Parks & Rec is not funny. Don’t trust her on this one. It’s gold. Mostly due to two characters, Ron Swanson and Tom Haverford.

I’m thankful that either NBC released – or some fine citizen took the time to build out – the Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness. Study it and memorize.

Some highlights:

  • Attire: Shorts over 6″ are capri pants. Shorts under 6″ are European.
  • Capitalism: God’s way of determining who is smart, and who is poor.
  • Crying: Acceptable at funerals and the Grand Canyon.
