    And if you know two things about Ben Wyatt on Parks and Recreation, you also know that he loves calzones more than anything*.

    So when I tell you that Adam Scott, the actor who played Ben Wyatt on Parks and Rec, went to a pizza-making class in Italy, tried to make a pizza, fucked it up, and ended up making a calzone instead, please understand the gravity of the situation.

    As fate would have it, my pizza-making class in Italy goes awry, so the chef saves me by turning it into a calzone.

    Sure, "as fate would have it." Like the man behind Ben Wyatt would travel all the way to Italy, Motherland of Italian Food...

    ...and not sabotage a pizza-making class in the name of calzones everywhere.

    This, my fellow Pawneeans, is not the face of a man who has made a mistake.

    This is the face of a man who has successfully furthered the calzone agenda.

    Death to pizza, long live the calzone.
