Today is a momentous day, everyone. On this day ten years ago, we were all introduced to the town of Pawnee, Indiana and the hardworking (ish) employees of its Parks Department. That ‘s right ‘ it ‘s officially been ten years since the premiere of Parks and Recreation, the show that taught us all to treat ourselves and, if you ‘re a fan of Ron Swanson, never trust the government and how to make a great chair.
In honor of its tenth birthday, here are ten moments from Parks and Rec that make us laugh as hard today as they did the first time we watched them.

Ron ‘s giddy laugh gets me every. single. time.
