Ron Swanson’s "Visions of Nature" art show grand opening speech from Parks and Recreation

Ah Ron Swanson, you are a wonderful creation. I heard this little speech on Parks and Recreation, and I thought: now this is a superb example of a comedic monologue, full of character and point of view; a whole world view hilariously encapsulated:

"Ok, everyone, shut up and look at me. Welcome to Visions of Nature. This room has several paintings in it. Some are big and some are small. People did them and they are here now. I believe that after this is over they will be hung in government buildings. Why the government is involved in an art show is beyond me. I also think it's pointless for a human to paint scenes of nature when they could just go outside and stand in it. Anyway, please do not misinterpret the fact that I am talking right now as genuine interest in art and attempt to discuss it with me further. End of speech." -Ron Swanson
