Who can forget the iconic final scene of 'The Phantom Menace,' when the fat frog guy holds the ball of energy over his head?

If you follow Parks and Recreation, you know that it’s a marvel of mise en scène – Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness,” anyone? Well, last night’s season 5 premiere kept the game rolling. Early in the episode we hear the Parks Dept. team hyping their annual employee appreciation BBQ. It’s one of those peculiar Pawnee events with bizarre traditions (a Gazpacho-Off?) and a name fit for a mental ward: The Leslie Knope Employment Enjoyment Summerslam Grill Jam Fun-Splosion!

The camera zooms to the poster for a split-second, but we figured it deserved some more screen time.  Check out the full-size poster below, and just imagine taking part in all those activities; fingers crossed we get to see “The One Woman Show: Parks and Dolls” as a web special!
