EW's Morning Bite: And the best sound bite from last night is...

“In 1984 a tornado struck Pawnee. When we asked Eagleton for help they claimed they weren’t home. An entire town claimed they weren’t home.”

I never thought of Nick Offerman as the game-show host type. (Rob Lowe, on the other hand…)

Yet it’s the mock-serious Offerman, in full Ron Swanson mode, channeling Hollywood Squares greats Peter Marshall and Tom Bergeron by hosting a version of the game for GQ‘s Men of the Year issue. Instead of keeping to the traditional format and asking true/false or multiple choice questions, Offerman challenged his cast with straight-foward pop-culture trivia.

Bacon-scented shaving cream is perfect present for Ron Swanson -- also a real thing

Bacon-scented-shaving-cream_510x317.jpg

Sorry, Honor — this product truly deserves to top Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness.

Yes, shaving cream that smells like rich, smoky pork actually exists. Here’s how the press release describes it: “J&D’s Bacon Shaving Cream™ is proudly Made in America and is the highest quality meat-scented shaving cream on the market today… It is best used after a hot shower or before an important date with someone you may want to spend the rest of your life with.”

As EW.com photo guru Jef Castro says, “That MUST cause break-outs. Or obesity.” Absolutely — but is it kosher? I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back from the product’s creators, “Bacontrepreneurs” Justin and Dave.

These guys also sell a sriracha-flavored lip balm. Wearing it, apparently, is “like making out with some tasty napalm.”

Congratulations, world: I have finally been rendered speechless. Ooo, accidental bacon pun!

'Parks and Rec': The 5 best moments from 'Ben's Parents'

Last week’s episode of Parks and Recreation, in which Ben finally proposed to Leslie, set the bar pretty high — some might say impossibly high — so last night the writers stepped up and let loose with some top-shelf material. We met Ben’s sparring, divorced, insufferable parents (played by Glenne Headly and Jonathan Banks) and watched Chris have a total, happy-sad mental breakdown (“It’s like a perfect storm of emotions!”). The team even brought back the scene-stealer (and arguably the show’s most consistently funny character) Jean-Ralphio, Tom’s flamboyant cad of a business partner. With so many memorable moments, it’s hard to narrow down the episode’s highlights… but here goes.

Ben: “I am deeply, ridiculously in love with you. And above everything else I want to be with you forever. So Leslie Knope, will …”
Leslie: “Wait. Wait. OK? I need to remember this. Give me a second.”
Ben: “OK. … Leslie Knope …”
Leslie: “No, no, no. Hold on. I need another second, please. I need to remember every little thing about how perfect my life is at this exact moment.”
Ben:’ “Leslie will you…”
Leslie: “Yes!”

'Parks and Recreation' recap: Then he walked in...

SPOILERS! I’m not going to bury the lead here — who gasped during tonight’s Parks and Recreation? Who cried? Who lost all hope that Ben Wyatt would one day walk out of their television and ask for your hand in marriage? Answer to all three? This girl!

In reference to the last one, I actually knew that would never happen — because Ben is not my true love. He’s Leslie’s. (Also, not a real person. But whatever.)

And in tonight’s episode, Ben came to realize what many have known since the geeky state auditor watched a beautiful, plucky, flu-plagued Leslie deliver an unforgettable speech in season 3. Leslie is the person he’s meant to spend his life with, and tonight, he made sure she knew that. He proposed. (Sigh.)  READ FULL STORY

Nick Offerman offers his moustache-growing tips -- VIDEO

Moustache aficionado Nick Offerman, who’s a spokesperson for Movember — a month-long moustache-growing campaign that raises funds for prostate and testicular cancer initiatives — elicited the help of sheep herders and Tibetan monks to tame his facial hair, but you don’t need to resort to such extremes. According to the Parks and Rec star, the manliest journey of your life starts with baby steps: First “hammer a nail,” then “tolerate a crying baby,” and when you’re ready, “eat a raw onion.” It’s official, Offerman is our generation’s Tom Selleck.

'Parks and Recreation': Pawnee's crabby seniors get a dose of sex-ed

Last night’s episode of Parks and Recreation ranks as a series standout. It tackled well-established themes — Tom’s media addiction, Pawnee’s laughably archaic social policies — in ways that felt fresh, timely, and subversive. Even bit player Perd Hapley, a witless and perpetually dramatic talk show host, took the spotlight and dished out some ridiculous one-liners.

Here are some of last night’s best moments.
