(Yet another) Late discovery: Leslie Knope is awesome.

Okay, so I’m a bit behind… Again. But I still have to say it: Parks and recreation is awesome. Amy Poehler is awesome. Leslie Knope is awesome.

How often do you get to hear someone call zirself* a feminist on TV? How often do you get characters whose offices are covered with pictures of successful women? Or award points for “knowledge of herstory”? And how awesome is all of that?

Pretty damn awesome is what it is.

*I’m trying out gender neutral pronouns. There are so many different versions and I’m not sure which one to use – so if you’ve got any suggestions, please share!

Here, have some more awesome:

ps. If you like, you can use this post for a drinking game. Just count the
awesomes. You’ll be drunk in no time. At least if you drink pure vodka.
ps 2. Don’t do that.

  1. Great post, we are obsessed with Parks & Rec here. Can’t get enough of it on Netflix. Go Leslie Knope!
