Ron Swanson: “I’m a simple man. I like pretty, dark-haired women and breakfast food. But this stock photo I bought at a framing store isn’t real. Today I got the real thing. A naked Tammy made me breakfast this morning. I should have taken a picture of it.”
“Swansons Breakfast Poster of Champions.” Apparently it’s a thing.
We could not find this exact stock photo available, but the replacement, “Swansons Breakfast Poster of Champions” was widely sold, along with similar bacon and eggs posters. They look delicious!
In the pilot episode, Ron salutes a big poster of Bobby Knight on his wall. Unfortunately, the (real-life) lawyers got involved, and NBC had to remove it from future episodes. Stupid? Of course. But what can you do.
Can I Have One?
No. Lawyers are jerks.
Yes, it’s not in his office, but doesn’t it deserve to be in your office? This is the epic diagram of all the essential Swanson virtues. Learn and enjoy:
