[[WMG:Leslie Knope is a clone of Hillary Clinton.]]
Hillary Clinton determined that she's getting too old to be elected president, and so she created a younger clone of herself to take over her quest after she's gone.

Amy Poehler, who plays Leslie Knope, played Hillary Clinton on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''. She, too, is a clone of Hillary Clinton.

[[WMG:Tom is an art lover]]
There's his reaction to the abstract painting in "The Mural" and his photography in "Summer Catalog."
* He may have became an art lover after "The Mural"; he clearly states in the beginning of that episode that he's not interested in art.

[[WMG:April's "disaffected teenager" persona is partially an act.]]
Like David Brent in the U.K. version of ''Series/{{The Office|UK}}'', April is playing up for the cameras, except she's trying to come off as a sarcastic ''{{Daria}}''[=-esque=] voice of reason/apathy. As the show goes on, April gets used to the cameras and bored with her act, so she starts to act more like herself. In short, she really is like that to a degree, but she was deliberately playing up that side of her personality in the earlier episodes.
* Downright plausible, this.

[[WMG:Ben will run for mayor of Pawnee]]
This way he and Chris stay and he has a chance to redeem himself.

[[WMG:Andy is the grown up version of [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Finn the Human]]]]
* And Jerry is the grown-up version of [[{{Peanuts}} Charlie Brown]] and Leslie is the grown-up version of [[WesternAnimation/TheMightyB Bessie]] [[ActorAllusion Higgenbottom]].

And following up to that...

[[WMG: Leslie really IS a grown up version of WesternAnimation/TheMightyB]]
Or at least Nickelodeon paid Leslie to make a semi autobiographical animated series about her childhood and her years in Girl Scouts and her talking dog.

[[WMG:Chris is [[Series/{{Scrubs}} Molly Clock]]'s long lost brother]]
* YES!

[[WMG:Leslie's dad is alive.]]
Her exact words were that "he LIVES in Florida in a cemetery". They never said he died.

[[WMG:The Aside Comment/mini-interview sequences take place in the characters' heads.]]
Unlike ''Series/{{The Office|US}},'' it's never stated that a documentary is being made about Pawnee's Parks and Rec department. Most of the time, when characters do two or more aside comments in one scene, they don't speak as if they know or remember the scene; they speak as if they are thinking of the comment while the scene is happening. When characters interrupt or comment on each others' asides, it just means that they're thinking aloud.
* Not exactly true. In the pilot, Ron Swanson acknowledges the presence of the documentary crew, asking them if they got a grant to make this. But much like The Office, the format is certainly a stylistic choice more than anything else, and they don't make a great deal of effort to maintain this illusion.
* I think that is definently the case later in the show. Early in the show, they were trying to go for a mockumentary thing, but I think the "they are making a documentary about us!" premise has pretty much been abandoned, in favour of just using it as a stylistic choice to, as you say, get into the heads of the characters.

[[WMG:So, what's a staunch libertarian doing in local government, anyway?]]
The answer is obvious, and comes down to two things: the theory of gravity, and Ron's moustache.
Just astronomical bodies are drawn to orbit objects of greater mass, so too are powerful ''things''. Ron Swanson's moustache is patently one of the most powerful things in the universe -- far more powerful than local government, and probably comparable in power to Ron himself. Therefore it is inevitable that local government is drawn to orbit around his moustache and, by extension, him. He can't help it. Or rather, he can help it, but only up to a point -- if that moustache were attached to a lesser man, it would be running Nebraska -- or possibly America -- as a totalitarian dictatorship. Only the raw power of Ron's disdain for power can counteract its awesome influence.
We should all be grateful to him.
* what
* This also explains Stalin. He was a much lesser man than Ron.

[[WMG:Ann will eventually date Tom.]]
She has been shown to be able to date self-centered guys before under the right circumstances, and in turn, Tom has been shown to have some HiddenDepths and has liked her since the first episode.
* I would argue against this only because while WeaknessTurnsHerOn, Tom is so weak that even Ann finds it annoying ("Bowling for Votes").
** Confirmed at the end of "Operation Ann".

[[WMG:Lil Sebastian chased Tammy One out of Pawnee.]]
She is widely considered to be a terror. No one but the mighty Lil Sebastian could get rid of her. Why else would she wait until he was dead to return? It also explains why Ron loves him so much.

[[WMG:Tom has partial immunity to Snakejuice because he taste-tested it a lot over the development stage.]]
The character sheet points out that him only being a bit affected by the otherwise powerful drink. The answer is simple: he and maybe Jean Ralphio were the only ones who would taste test. Over time, he built up an immunity to it. Hence why he wasn't knocked out flat.

[[WMG:The series will end with Leslie becoming president.]]
Except it'll end Sopranos style and before the election results are announced, it'll cut to black, and the credits will just be a photo montage of moments from the show while the theme song plays.

[[WMG:When the show is running out of material and ratings are falling, there will be a [[SweepsWeekLesbianKiss lesbian kiss]] between Leslie and Ann.]]
It will happen for some contrived sitcom reason, a fact which will be [[BaitAndSwitchLesbians ignored by the advertising]]. They'll spend several episodes dealing with all the fallout and drama. The whole arc will be very annoying, commentators will complain about [[UnfortunateImplications why two women can't be close friends without being lesbians]], and the show itself may JumpTheShark.
** Or this could just happen for laughs. Like, they'll be drunk at a party, and someone like Tom or Jean-Ralphio or Donna will comment on it like "I knew it" or "That's hot".

[[WMG:When the show is running out of material and ratings are falling, there will be a [[SweepsWeekLesbianKiss lesbian kiss]] between Leslie and April.]]
Because it'd be hot.

[[WMG:When the show is running out of material and ratings are falling, there will be a [[SweepsWeekLesbianKiss lesbian kiss]] between Ann and April.]]
Because it'd be hot.
* You know, I could picture April wanting to kiss Ann just to annoy her/freak her out.

[[WMG: Pawnee wasn't originally called that.]]
It's just that after it briefly caused a stir in the 1990s for a supposed "space-time rift" in its' immediate area, the sudden notoriety caused local councillors to believe that the name [[GroundhogDay Punxsutawney]] was a bit of a mouthful for national newspapers.
* Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania is a real place and their Groundhog Day celebration is real. Punxsutawney is located in Pennsylvania and Pawnee is located in Indiana. We've heard a lot about Pawnee's history on the show and it was definitely always called "Pawnee".

[[WMG: Perd Hapley is an experimental android.]]
Perd Hapley was released from a facility that was designing an android to report on the news, which explains why he has to report on literally everything that happens, and the reason why he gave ET 1 and a half stars on his review. - zemogan

[[WMG: Jean-Ralphio exists just off-camera.]]
That, or he's some sort of djinn, because anytime a person says his name or thinks of him, he appears from off-camera. - zemogan

[[WMG: When Ann leaves the show...]]
...things won't work out with Chris, and she will end up changing her name and [[Series/{{The Office}} selling paper in Stamford, Connecticut.]].
* Jossed. The chronology does not match up.

[[WMG: The "redacted" middle name of Ron's son is Leslie.]]
It's a man's name too, after all. (Or maybe they went with a male-only variant like Lester.) She's the one friend Ron might name a child after, and he would definitely keep it secret. It'll be a big ''aww'' moment when we find out.

[[WMG: The "redacted" middle name of Ron's son is Fucking]]
He was born ready. He's John Fucking Swanson

[[WMG: The name of Garry/Jerry/Larry will be changed to...]]
* Barry
* Harry
* Perry
* Terry
** Terry was confirmed in the season 6 finale.

[[WMG: Chris going to London is a hint that [[GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Peter Quill]] was in ThorTheDarkWorld.]]
In ThorTheDarkWorld, jet pilots in London go through a portal that takes them to another world. Peter Quill is an American pilot. This show may have been giving a shout-out to Marvel and providing a clue that Peter Quill was flying a jet from London to another world in ''Thor: The Dark World,'' setting up the ''Guardians of the Galaxy'' movie.

[[WMG: GuardiansOfTheGalaxy will never be mentioned.]]
It would be weird because Chris Pratt is in both this show and that movie.

[[WMG: Season 7 will reference movies that have not yet been released in real life.]]
The season 6 finale ended in May 2014 before the three-year time skip, meaning that season 7 will take place in 2017 and 2018. By then, there will be a plethora of movies that could be mentioned as if the characters had already seen them, such as the following:

* ''Avatar 2'' (with ''Avatar 3'' being released about halfway through season 7)
* ''Ant-Man''
* ''Avengers: Age of Ultron'' (with possibly a third film being released by the season's end)
* ''Batman vs Superman''
* ''Captain America 3''
* ''Finding Dory''
* ''The Flash''
* ''The Good Dinosaur''
* ''Inside Out''
* ''Justice League''
* ''Kung Fu Panda 3''
* ''The Penguins of Madagascar''
* ''Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales''
* ''Star Trek 13''
* ''Star Wars: Episode VII'' (and possibly a few other installments)
* ''Terminator: Genesis''
