Image of the Day: Casting inspires Parks + Rec meets Guardians art

The very moment Chris Pratt landed the part of Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, we knew this mashup was inevitable. And thank goodness!

Parks and Recreation climbed its way out from a lackluster first season to become one of the funniest critical darlings of the sitcom world. A cursory look around any social media site will show you that the show is practically a meme-making machine. So when affable goofball Andy Dwyer was suddenly set to become Star-Lord? Something had to be done. Something hilarious. And now it has arrived.

Illustrator Kyle Hilton? Thank you. Leslie Knope as Rocket Raccoon? Ron Swanson as Groot? April Ludgate as Gamora? Tom Haverford as Drax? Amazing. All of it. You've done the citizens of Pawnee proud.  

We just wish there was room for Ann Perkins, that's all.
