Ron Swanson is, perhaps, one of the United States’ greatest comedy exports, if not one of its greatest ever men. The co-star of Parks & Recreation was a straight-talking, beef-eating, all-American moustached dude who provided us with a boatload of amazing quips during the show’s six-year run.
He touched on just about everything from Star Wars to capitalism, as well as giving valuable advice about friendship, food and breakfast.
Here are some gems from Ron Swanson’s endless stream of wisdom, putdowns and snapbacks.
On American history
On Star Wars
On utilising objects efficiently and dangerously
On appropriate portion sizes
On friendship (or lack of)
On how to use language
On the need for salad
On how to reject people
On how much effort to give
On the success of capitalism and socialism
You do you, Ron
