Ron Swanson meets Rorschach

Ron Swanson meets Rorschach

The character of Ron Swanson–the libertarian embodiment of a combination of Davy Crockett, Teddy Roosevelt, John Wayne, and Ayn Rand, who also happens to be the boss on NBC’s Parks and Recreation–has long been a darling of the Internets. The meme factories have had endless fun with image macros of his dogmatic pontifications and life philosophies. Ron outlined this belief system in his Pyramid of Greatness (larger view here) which might have to be considered as a candidate for the pantheon of “Contributions to Humankind” (it’s a sort of Mount Rushmore on a global scale etched into Everest).
