Nick And Ric Offerman Celebrate Father’s Day In This Hilarious Whisky Ad [WATCH]

If there’s one guy on earth that knows what it takes to be a real man, it’s Nick Offerman. From carpentry to hunting to whisky-drinking, Ron F****** Swanson knows what it takes to be a man’s man. I’d also be willing to bet that his father was the one that taught him all of that, too.

Ric Offerman, father and teacher of all things macho, joins his son Nick in this epic Lagavulin Whisky commercial that breaks down what a relationship between a father and a son should look (and sound) like.

For those who don’t know, Nick Offerman played the hilariously deadpan and morose Ron Swanson on Parks & Recreation, a man whose love for the government is matched only by his work ethic (or remarkable lack thereof). The whisky is Lagavulin Whisky, a single malt scotch whisky made in Islay, Scotland.

If Ron Swanson and Dr. Suess Co-Existed, it Would Look Like This

Do you like Dr. Suess’ style and the swagger of Parks and Rec character Ron Swanson? Then you’re going to love this shirt design by Tom Trager entitled Ron Swanson VS Dr. Suess. The shirt, available in many different colorways, definitely relays the sour, upset, hungry aesthetic of Ron Swanson with his trademark line: GIVE ME ALL THE BACON & EGGS [you have].

Tom Trager who? This shirt was designed by RON F@%KING SWANSON!

Ron Swanson Holiday Cookies

What a great way to end a year filled with Ron Swanson and Parks and Recreation (NBC) references than with this amazing set of Swanson Holiday Cookies? Some of the featured phrases from the now notorious Parks and Rec character are accounted for here, including one of my favorites — “You had me at ‘Meat Tornado'”.

Ron Swanson’s trademark beard is in attendance, as well as a great looking piece of steak. If you’re going to eat cookies, they might as well be manly ones…you know?

Ron Swanson TV Dinner

We’re so glad people aren’t tiring of the Ron Swanson machisimo-meme that seems to keep reviving itself across the interwebs. In this latest foodie turn-up, the same person who tastefully created the All of the Bacon & Eggs You Have ice cream flavor has successfully photoshopped into existent Ron Swanson’s Turf ‘n’ Turf. This amazing looking TV dinner that many-a-man wish existed comes with 2.5 lbs. of meat, including a 16 oz. T-bone and a 24 oz. Porterhouse.

The meal is equivalent to the one Ron Swanson refers to in an episode of NBC’s Parks and Recreation (sorry about the possibly one of the worst TV bootlegging, camera holders, giggly sneezing buffoon recordings in the world) —

Parks and Recreation References Used to Sell Food at Trader Joe’s

Blame the foodies out there for the incredible amount of airplay the characters of NBC’s Parks and Recreation are receiving for their particular in-show food references that have become inescapable memes across the Internet. Maybe it’s our natural tendency to gravitate to anyone who enjoys a hearty meal, or a young Indian comedian who takes huge bites of extremely hot pepper to prove a point in front of his peers.

We’ve seen Ron Swanson get his fair share of foodie love from the show (Ron Swanson Meat Mosaic – All Things Food With Ron Swanson – Ben & Jerry’s Ron Swanson Flavor) along with co-star Aziz Ansari who playes the role of Tom Haverford (Tom Haverford Food Slang – Tom Haverford Eats a Pepper) discuss food quite a bit.

It seems the team at one particular Trader Joe’s market has taken the meme to new heights, using it in their marketing and offering up some humorous suggestions on the price tags starring Ron Swanson and Tom Haverford. While these pictures, which surfaced thanks to Reddit users jmlache and panteradactyl, aren’t indicative of an official co-branding or nation-wide initiative on the part of Trader Joe’s, it is a fun look into one store’s particular sense of humor and pop culture references.

All Things Food With Ron Swanson of ‘Parks and Recreation’

NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” is currently heralded by some as one of the best shows on television, with Nick Offerman’s Ron Swanson character achieving similar accolades. Particularly amusing is the near cult following that follows his character offscreen, much the same way co-star Aziz Ansari’s character Tom Haverfood has experienced (see: Tom Haverfoods).

One of Ron Swanson’s calling cards is his love of bacon and breakfast foods. This passion was recently exploited via the Photoshopped creation of a fake product — Ron Swanson: All of the Bacon & Eggs You Have – Flavored Ice Cream. We explore this recurring motif through the following compilation of clips documenting Ron Swanson’s gravitation to bacon and food in general:
