Ron Swanson of Parks and Recreation is known to sternly state his distrust of government, the “greedy piglet that suckles on a taxpayer’s teat until they have sore, chapped nipples.” Someone noticed the similarity between Swanson’s greatness and the conservative, unflinching monologizing of Rorschach from Watchmen. Now ComicsAlliance has tipped us to the RonSworschach Tumblr which forever combines the wisdom of Swanson with apt pictures of Rorschach (and vice versa).
The dedicated Tumblr is new as of this Monday, thus there aren’t many pictures there yet, so I put some of our favorites in the slideshow that follows and made eleven new ones as well. Creating nearly a dozen new ones may seem like overkill, but it’s easy work considering Rorschach and Ron Swanson are two of my only four areas of interest (the other two being “chewing gum” and “kicking ass” but pity I’m all out of bubblegum). My only regret is not being able to find a picture of Rorschach at a park, so I could work in the Ron Swanson quote, “My dream is to have the parks system privatized and run entirely for profit, by corporations.”
