Picture for The Swanson inspired by Parks and Recreation

7,531,590 views  This week we return, for the first time in 3 years, to the house that built Babish: Parks and Rec. As summer (eventually) approaches, what could be better than celebrating Swanson-style: by wrapping some meat around some other meat. There's only one problem: I can't seem to stop using colons in this video's description.
