How Would Leslie Knope React to Amy Poehler Using Cocaine? With Breakfast Foods, Of Course
While Amy Poehler and her Parks and Recreation character Leslie Knope are clearly as oil is to water — which is to say, very, very different — I can't help but constantly wonder how Leslie Knope would react to Poehler's often crazy (and occasionally inappropriate) sense of humor. Leslie Knope, on the NBC comedy series, is as straight-edged as they come, and Poehler...well, Poehler's been said to be able to "pretty much curse any of the dudes on [Parks and Recreation] under the table." It's one of the many reasons I love Poehler, of course, but it's pretty much safe to say that Leslie Knope, whose most inappropriate thoughts are either about Ben's butt or breakfast foods, would not approve. And now, with the release of Poehler's new memoir Yes Please , the comedian has detailed some drug use, including her love (and hatred) of cocaine.
So, obviously, considering the most her Parks and Rec character has ever done was eat a brownie she thought was laced with pot in college (only to find out it wasn't laced with anything — it was just a really good brownie), of course I have to ask: How would Leslie Knope react to Amy Poehler's admitted cocaine use?
Not sanely, to say the least.
