If you're a diehard fan of a comedy series, there's nothing like following along every episode and being rewarded with running jokes that feel like they were written just for you. Whether you quote these running jokes to your friends, watch YouTube compilations of them over and over, or just feel a sense of superiority when you catch one that no one else would, a good recurring bit on TV is like nothing else. 

For fans of Parks and Recreation, the best running jokes are all at once bizarre, complex, and delightfully simple. The funniest running jokes on Parks and Rec wouldn't make much sense to the people who have only seen a few episodes of the show, but to the rest of us, they are masterpieces threaded throughout a warm Pawnee-made quilt of genius. The Parks and Rec jokes that we love are there for us through the ups and the downs, the off-the-wall humor and the heartbreaking drama, all rooted in the characters that we love to spend time with and love even more to laugh at. 

So grab a plate of waffles, light 5000 candles in the wind, and try not to get run over by a Lexus, because it's time to vote in the local Ranker election and cast your ballot for the best running jokes on Parks and Rec.
