There’s just something sort of magically strange about the love between Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman and his wife (or “legal property”), Megan Mullally. If you haven’t had the immense pleasure of watching one of his hilarious live shows, during which Offerman spends a lot of time talking about how the two actors met and fell in love with each other, then you should at least watch his performance of “Rainbow Song,” which is a funny-yet-beautiful love song that he wrote for his wife. Their love is just one that makes you wish that you could spend all day following them around, at least from a safe distance.
As of last night, you can at least now watch Offerman and Mullally perform together in the off-Broadway play Annapurna, in which they play a divorced couple, presumably to the same hilarity that they provide as Ron Swanson and Tammy II on Parks and Rec. After the Opening Night celebration, the couple sat down with Vulture to share yet another story about how much they love each other, except this one is about Offerman’s horrendous gas.
Megan Mullally: He’s on a real farting tear right now. I don’t know what is going on. It’s unbelievable.
Nick Offerman: It’s my thing. No, it’s been building my whole life.
Mullally: I don’t know how you keep it in for 90 minutes on that stage.
Offerman: I had to begin avoiding open flames.
Mullally: It’s crazy, it’s like, there’s no amount of soundproofing that can …
Offerman: P.S. I don’t keep it in for 90 minutes. I just wait until I’m over in the kitchen.
Mullally: I don’t really hear the audible ones, though.
Offerman: When I’m behind the kitchen counter, I can get a hold of one cheek, and that allows it to aerate without getting the full flap involved. (Via Vulture)
Mullally also told a story about a Dutch oven and potential flatulent assault that’s sure to make sure that Offerman is a one-woman man for the rest of his stinky life.
