Nick Offerman Sits Down For An AMA On Reddit (NSFW)

Who knew that Reddit could top President Barack Obama? Just days after the leader of the free world visited the site for a community interview known as an AMA (Ask Me Anything), star of NBC’s Parks and Recreation Nick Offerman stopped by. The man who plays everyone’s favorite libertarian mountain man, Ron Swanson, gave an even more candid look into the mind of awesomeness.

Be warned, Offerman’s answers contain adult language and amazing descriptions of bacon.

Perhaps the most revealing comments were about how similar Offerman is to his onscreen alter ego. He seemed to confirm that, in the words of one redditor, Ron Swanson is “a PG version of Nick Offerman.” (A scary thought considering some of the things Swanson’s done on the show.)

But the most upvoted answer was Offerman’s response to a question about any “drastic differences” between himself and the fictional parks director:

“I wouldn’t call it drastic, but my penis is 5/8″ larger than Ron’s, in both length AND breadth, but it is held that he wields his with greater aplomb.”

Offerman continued to hold court on all things man, saying that bacon and eggs is best prepared in “an iron skillet, over a fire of oak at your cabin,” and that his favorite scotch is Lagavulin The Balvenie.

For fans of the show, he offered the delightful insights that yes, they are given leeway to improvise, but that “the writing is so sublime, there is seldom any need to improve upon it;” and that the hardest part of playing Ron is: “Keeping a straight face in the onslaught of hilarity from all of our cast, except Jerry.”

For those who feel they may never achieve this level of manliness, the AMA contained a reminder that even the greats have their weaknesses: a coworker of Offerman’s sister exposed that a young Nick would reportedly “cry like a bitch” when forced to eat his tuna casserole.

All in all, I think they now have to add AMAs to the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness.
