"Parks and Recreation" has fun with Minnesota

Posted by: Neal Justin under Television Updated: November 14, 2012 - 11:29 AM

Adam Scott and Amy Poehler

"Parks and Recreation" has had a lot of fun over the years poking fun at small-town Indiana. But last week it was Minnesota's turn.

Die-hard fans know that Adam Scott's character Ben Wyatt was once the boy mayor of Partridge, Minn. His engagement party to Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) prompted a visit from his divorced parents. At one point, Wyatt suggests they distract the bickering couple with some kind of innocous conversation.

"Like what?" Knope asks.

"Well, they're white people from Minnesota. So hockey, fishing, skiing, sailing and after a few drinks, put on a Prince album," he said. "Don't mention the Green Bay Packers or the State of Iowa."
