In one of the thousands of corners of Reddit, there’s a subreddit (a “category,” if you will) of “shower thoughts.” Shower thoughts are those trivial epiphanies that you come to, then say, “Huh,” as you just as quickly forget them. But not one will forget them when they come from the mouth of Nick Offerman.

Mashable put together Simply Genius Shower Thoughts with Nick Offerman, and it lives up to the title. It’s genius, and it’s got Ron Swanson himself in a picturesque setting, spouting dime-store wisdom.

Watch it, and in doing so reclaim your manhood and grow a mustache.

A Marble Ron Swanson Statue Discovered In Philadelphia http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/a-marble-ron-swanson-statue-discovered-in-philadelphia/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/a-marble-ron-swanson-statue-discovered-in-philadelphia/#comments Tue, 15 Jul 2014 16:47:15 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=263029 It belongs in a museum.

It was a long hard fight to bring the people of Detroit the RoboCop statue that they so richly deserved. Thanks to a post on Reddit, Parks and Recreation fans won’t know this same struggle because a Ron Swanson statue already exists in Philadelphia, and has been there for some time presumably.

Housed in the Walnut Street Theater (the oldest in America), the marble statue is not actually inspired by Nick Offerman but actually a carving representing legendary Philadelphia actor Edwin Forrest, who began acting at the Walnut in 1820 and just happened to look exactly like Offerman.

The resemblance is astounding. In fact, it’s just as astounding as this marble statue of Tywin Lannister that I photographed at the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid.

It was located right around the corner from this bust of Matchbox 20 frontman Rob Thomas.

Nick Swanson To Strip For Charity http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/nick-swanson-to-strip-for-charity/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/nick-swanson-to-strip-for-charity/#comments Wed, 17 Oct 2012 22:03:23 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=251542 You're gay if you DON'T want to see this. That's just what I feel.

In case Katy Perry, Al Pacino, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Jack McBrayer, Bill O’Reilly, Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen, Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Sudeikis (who’s banging Olivia Wilde, which puts him in a whole other realm of respect), Anderson Cooper, Jimmy Kimmel, and Julianne Moore weren’t reason enough to turn in to Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Stars, there’s one more name that puts the sum of all those others to shame. Yup.

Ron Fuckin’ Swanson. Nick Offerman. He’ll be raising money for autism (against autism, actually) and for every $1,000 he receives, he’ll get a little more naked. What’s not to like? Charity, Nick Offerman, burly, mustachioed nudity. This program is shaping up to have it all.

Lucy Lawless To Play A Swanson Love Interest On ‘Parks And Recreation’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/lucy-lawless-to-play-a-swanson-love-interest-on-parks-and-recreation/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/lucy-lawless-to-play-a-swanson-love-interest-on-parks-and-recreation/#comments Thu, 16 Aug 2012 14:43:33 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=250384 I hope he doesn't get his mustache rubbed off again.

The only woman who is woman enough for the man that is Ron Swanson is Xena: Warrior Princess. After she wasn’t able to play Tammy 1 due to scheduling conflicts with Spartacus, Lucy Who Does Not Obey The Law will finally be finding her way on to Parks and Recreation in season five.

Lawless will play a single mom who needs the assistance of the Pawnee Parks Department, and since she’s gonna be around for a few episodes, it’s highly like that she will be playing the previously-hinted-at Swanson Girl. A Swanson Girl is like a Bond Girl, but way more interesting.

If this relationship doesn’t end with a battle with medieval weapons then…then…just…missed opportunity, man.

The Internet has given me so much. First, there were breasts. Then, there were cat videos. Now, there’s Ron [Paul] Swanson, and it’s my new favorite meme. Yeah, I said “meme” instead of “image macro.” Deal with it.

This groundbreaking project comes from RonPaulSwanson.tumblr.com, and combines the image of libertarian-leaning Republican Ron Paul with the timeless wisdom of Parks and Rec character Ron Swanson. And by god, it matches up perfectly. But don’t take my word for it. Check out the pics below, and visit the site for yourself to see Ron [Paul] Swanson in all his glory.
