Here's something to perk up your Monday: There's a new video of Nick Offerman, the actor behind Ron Swanson, Park's & Rec's meat-loving director of the Pawnee Parks Department, performing a slam poetry ode to bacon. It contains bongo drums and lines such as, "Life is diminished down to its grizzly bear essence." It certainly made our lunch hour better.

The video is part of College Humor's Malarious initiative, which aims to raise malaria awareness and funds to treat children infected with the disease. For as little as a $1 donation, you can watch more than 30 celebrities doing hilarious things in 24 other videos, like Elizabeth Banks getting hit with pies!

And in honor of Offerman's delightful slam poetry performance, here's one of our favorite Ron Swanson moments:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
