    This is a crackpot theory that just occurred to me. I couldn't find anything on the Internet supporting said crackpot theory, so I figured I'd post it here.

    Evidence supporting:
    * Parks and Recreation was created by Simpsons writer Greg Daniels.
    * According to various Simpsons commentaries, Swartzwelder is a staunch libertarian, not unlike Swanson.
    * They're both burly men with mustaches.
    * Their last names start with the same three letters. Now that I think about it, even their first names rhyme.
    * In the only episode that features Swartzwelder in a DVD commentary ('Cartridge Family'), the writers call him up and ask what he's doing. Swartzwelder answers, "I'm cooking a steak." This is exactly what Ron Swanson would be doing if you randomly called him up.
    Well played my good man.

    Well... fuck.

    That's good internet right there.

    I actually enjoyed both Bart vs The Space Mutants and Bart vs World as a kid. Favorite? Dunno, they both have pretty tedious parts, but that ice cave has got to be the worst. Or maybe that Hollywood horror level.

    Anyway, how well did Greg Daniels know Swartzwelder? When exactly did he join the writing room? Mike Scully replaced Conan, so he came in just after Swartzwelder stopped coming to the rewrites, but he obviously got to know him pretty well being a showrunner. But Scully didn't have anything to do with creating Parks & Rec, right? Are there anymore former Simpsons writers on staff over there?

    I guess John did come to a meeting a couple of times a year, since there are a few comments about him from season 5-8 writers in the Ortved book. And there's always the stories the writers told eachother, of course.
