** Well, considering how the Pawneeans continued to use [=AltaVista=] long after it was generally abandoned, it's plausible that the government likes the Windows platform more than other platforms- besides, it seems that Windows Mobile is taking over the "productivity" niche once held by [=BlackBerry=], given the app selection on the Windows Store.

* QuietlyPerformingSisterShow: The show's similarities to ''[[Series/TheOfficeUS The Office]]'' are no coincidence; it shared the same executive producers and some writers, and was originally pitched as a {{spinoff}}. While ''The Office'' got much more attention and higher ratings, Parks quietly built up a loyal following and became a critical darling, with most critics considering it equal to, and in some cases better than, ''The Office''.

** Councilman Jamm to the extreme. His [[EstablishingCharacterMoment first appearance]] has him using Leslie's private bathroom at City Hall without permission, constantly undermins her attempts to get a dog park on the lot near Ann's house so he can build a Paunch Burger on it, got drunk at Leslie and Ben's impromptu wedding at the park fundraiser and throwing two stink bombs. He gets a well deserved punch from Ron. He later tries to sue Ron for 22 million dollars... only to be foiled when April and Tom prove able to [[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame beat him at his own game]]. He does [[spoiler:[[TookALevelInKindness become slightly better]] after going through a brutal BreakTheHaughty routine from Tammy 2 that nearly emotionally destroyed him to the point that even Leslie and Ron felt sorry for him and rescued Jamm from her]].

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Nearly everyone who works for the government is shown to be incompetent or outright jerkasses, and the solutions to problems mostly boils down to "things would be easier if we broke the law." Despite this, Leslie more often than not finds a way to solve problems lawfully, and while having a optimistic attitude about it.
