Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Parks
& Recreation have continually gained critical acclaim for their exaggerated
character traits and over-the-top workplace humour. Arguably the funniest
characters of each show have been built from the same mould - I give you
Captain Holt and Ron Swanson.
Raymond Holt is the openly
gay police Captain of the 99th Precinct, while Ron Swanson is the saxophone
loving breakfast fiend. Andre Braugher and Nick Offerman execute the characters
to perfection, it’s amazing they were able to keep a straight face throughout
scenes while delivering the hilarious situational humour with their signature raw
Holt and Ron try so hard not
to be funny, it is in fact hilarious. Can you tell which of these
straight-to-the-point guys said the following lines? How well do you really know
Captain Holt and Ron Swanson?
