Technically, Ron Swanson is not getting a second job in the Pawnee government. But, Nick Offerman (whom it’s getting harder and harder to tell apart from his alter-ego) supplies the voice for this animated Axe Cop short.
I don’t know if this is remotely connected to the Axe Cop cartoon that’s supposed to be part of Fox’s upcoming Saturday animation block and Adult Swim competitor. But I do know that if that is indeed the case than this is about as perfect a thing as perfect things go.
For those wondering what the hell Axe Cop is, well, it’s a webcomic by brothers Malachai Nicolle (age 5 when the series began, now age 8) and Ethan Nicolle (age 29 when the series began). Malachai comes up with the zany adventures of the gruff cop, who prefers to wield an axe to kill bad guys, while Ethan does the artwork. It’s about as bonkers as you would expect. [via toplessrobot]
