Nick Offerman Of 'Parks and Rec' Eats A 'Ron Swanson Turkey Burger' On Fallon (VIDEO)

There are many reasons why Ron Swanson from "Parks and Recreation" is one of the best characters on TV right now, not least of which is his voracious appetite for red meat in all forms. On a recent episode, Rob Lowe's character Chris, a health nut, recommended that Swanson (played by Nick Offerman) switch from beef hamburgers to turkey burgers. Swanson's response: "Is that a deep-fried turkey leg inside a beef burger? If so, delicious."

Offerman proved that he's a man of his word last night on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" by indulging in a real-life Ron Swanson Turkey Burger with a glass of scotch to wash it down, in true Ron Swanson fashion. Watch as Offerman, Fallon and guest Maya Rudolph discover how a red-blooded American man eats a turkey burger.
