Whenever you think of any NBC shows to watch, the two most common shows that come up are The Office and Parks and Rec, both produced by legendary TV producer Micheal Schur. The man is a genius for creating both of these incredible, thought-provoking shows. From hilarious insight into the suffocating grey aura of a typical American workplace to their goofy characters.
Running these weird offices of Scranton and Pawnee are the unique and polar opposite bosses Michael Scott and Ron Swanson. Michael loves his job and tries hard to be a better boss every day, considers the office as a family and worries for his employees’ happiness, but his stupidity, insensitivity and completely offensive behaviour only aggravates them. While Ron Swanson is the complete opposite and couldn’t care less about what his employees do and he may run the department, but seems to do the least work often talking about how corrupt the government is, even though he works for the same.
But what connects these two iconic TV characters is the love from fans, whether you laugh at Michael’s downright erroneous cringey misquotes or simply giggle over Swanson’s comments on manliness or his kooky love for food. Can you tell these two archetypal bosses apart from their quotes alone?
