Title: Parks and Rec: A Stranger fan theory
Post by: Rev. Jimmy on January 26, 2017, 04:03:12 PM
My special lady is a big fan of the TV show Parks and Rec, and I believe that a certain Stranger from TBL shows up in Pawnee, Indiana.
 I recently saw an episode in which Sam Elliot guest stars as Ron Dunn, a sandal wearing vegan hippie. This character serves as a bizarro version of main character Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), who is a staunch libertarian parks director of Pawnee and every bit the "man's man."
Ron Dunn is the parks director of the neighboring town of Eagleton. Although the two initially hit it off, Swanson is soon put off by Dunn's veganism, yoga and general optimism.
My theory is that Ron Dunn is actually the Stranger (Elliot's character from TBL). The Stranger dug the Dude's style. After his encounter with the Dude, the Stranger himself became more Dudely. He continued to travel on down the trail and eventually settled in Eagleton, Indiana and became a parks director.
