Do You Watch Parks and Rec? I LOVE it! #funfact

Sometimes you just gotta laugh. It works the muscles, burning calories, and releases endorphins, reducing stress. How's that for awesome.

Well, today I laughed heartily at one scene in 'Parks and Recreation'. I only started watching it recently thanks to a free Netflix subscription and my sister's recommendation! Now I am on my second month (yeah, they got me hooked, plus I watched the whole series of Crossing Jordan the first month, the kick-assest coroner there is, an original. Eat that 'Bones', etc.)

But I digress. The hilarious scene in question had me laughing so much I had tears rolling down my cheeks. It involved the main character, Leslie Knope, having her first political rally, which was organized by her advisers, her dear friends. They might be enthusiastic but they have no political experience whatsoever. The joke starts when they are crossing an ice rink (which was supposed to be a basket ball court) on a red carpet. The red carpet stops many, many feet from the ridiculously small stage. The group then stumbles en masse across the ice towards the stage, where more hilarity ensues as each member tries to hoist Leslie up. I am almost breaking up writing about it!! I need to watch it again. I wish I could save just that 2 minute scene for when I really need the relief.

I did find another hilarious clip that showcases the whit and original humor of the show. This one involves Leslie's boss, Ron Swanson and his loathing of the digital age. Enjoy.
