"Death does not scare me. What I am worried about is spoiling my children. I don’t want them to be the kind of people who don’t work, live off their trust funds, who buy their wooden furniture! I will leave my children $50 a piece for the cab home from my funeral and a steak dinner. End of discussion."

— Ron Swanson

Ron Swanson + Meat = Awesome (Part 2)

Last year, I did a post celebrating Ron Swanson’s meat love.  This is my follow-up for season four in which we finally get to see Ron eating ribs. I can’t believe it took this long.

Ron Swanson + Meat = Awesome

Next to Jack Donaghy and Lucille Bluth, Ron Swanson is my favorite television character of all time. There is much to admire about Ron: his intense libertarianism, his willingness to try cornrows, his support of Leslie, that time he gave a small child a landmine, and, of course, his secret life as jazz musician Duke Silver. But above all, it’s Ron’s meat-love that inspires greatness in others. As a testament to Ron I have collected all the images of Ron eating meat and everything he’s said while eating it. Enjoy!

(Note: In the picture above, Ron is tossing a burger at his head because he has a hernia and can’t eat normally without pain but must have meat. Clip here.)
