Behold the “Swanson Pyramid of Greatness”


As you know I was more than a little excited about the return of Parks and Rec last week. And it did not disappoint:

To fully understand the beauty that is The Pyramid – you need to click on the above and read up on what Pawnee Parks and Recreation Director Ron Swanson believes are the Building Blocks of Greatness, then watch the episode Go Big or Go Home to hear his personal introduction to this thing of wonder.

And really – you know you want a printable copy to frame for your home and/or office. I mean, I think we all need to remember why “Cabins”, “Rage” and “Deer Protein” are indeed fundamental steps to Greatness.

  1. I especially like the Skim Milk building block of greatness. I like my milk rich and creamy, dammit!

    I thought the Honour building block was interesting, because when I thought about it, it was actually quite hard to define honour. For me, it is about having a strong sense of your own ethical code, though not necessarily a sense of morality as society might define it, and sticking to it no matter what. I think honour is a deeply personal trait. But then, you can also show honour to another person by showing respect for THEIR values and achievements.

    Thanks for bringing me the lulz and also food for thought 😉
