    Gruff, smug, no nonsense.

    Can eat or drink massive amounts anything.

    Can make a table out of a stick.

    Plays the saxophone.

    Sexual powerhouse, especially around Tammy II.

    Has a claymore mine on his desk.

    Can hunt, fish or kill anything.

    Only steadying force amongst a pack of lunatics.

    My new role model, Ron Swanson.

    HA! One of my daughter's turned us on to Parks and Recreation a few years back. Based on what I know from your posts, I can totally see the partiality for you. I'm more of an Andy (Chris Pratt) kinda guy myself, but entertaining show with funny characters for sure.

    Don't forget Ron's alter-ego can play a mean saxophone, @Breeze147 . :headbang:

    Check out some of Nick Offerman's books, he's like a real life Ron Swanson in some ways.

    This is true. He is quite handy. He and Amy Poehler host Season 2 of "Making It" tonight on NBC. A two week event. Last season was fun to watch.

    "The best makers from around the country take on a series of handmade projects they must complete in their own unique way. As the competition goes on, the challenges become increasingly difficult, and the least successful maker is eliminated each week."

    Nuggets from 'Ron Swanson's Pyramid of Greatness':

    Honor: If you need it defined, you don’t have it.
    B.O.: Cultivating a manly musk puts your opponents on notice.
    Intensity: Give 100%. 110% is impossible. Only idiots recommend that.
    Torso: Should be thick and impenetrable.
    Body Grooming: Only women shave below the neck
