In 2012, Arnold Schwarzenegger held a contest to promote his new book in which the winner would have his or her outgoing voicemail recorded by the actor/governor. Aziz tweeted at him several times asking to participate until finally Arnold responded.

One of Aziz's most memorable and quotable bits on NBC's Parks and Recreation is his "Oh-No-Nos" — aka, his deal breakers. These include not loving '90s R&B and not knowing enough about sheets' thread counts.

P is for President Obama

At a 2012 fundraiser in New York City, President Obama spoke about how much his oldest daughter loves Aziz. He then proceeded to mock his Twitter follower count — ouch.

Q is for Quesadilla

If there's something Aziz knows a lot about, it's food. He's been known to indulge in a few post-party quesadillas, which he talked about during his appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman.

W is for Work in Progress
