Watch Nick Offerman Read Some of Reddit’s Funniest Shower Thoughts

“My right elbow has never been touched by my right hand." Swanson shares his shower thoughts.

Still from YouTube

It’s hard to tell where Nick Offerman ends and Ron Swanson begins, but it’s inarguable that both the comedian and his Parks and Recreation alter-ego have a knack for kooky aphorism. That ability has been put to excellent use in a new Mashable video, which has Offerman read some of Reddit’s shower thoughts in all his gruff, manly, deadpan glory.

Offerman’s trademark growl and gravitas make these pseudo-profound thoughts seem a tad more insightful, with some coming off as a Jack Handey joke or a Zen koan. After all, we technically are all half-centaur, right? Enjoy.
