The Wild Parks And Recreation Theory That Explains Everything About Leslie Knope

Posted on

The user went on to list their compelling evidence, beginning with the fact that Leslie’s position as a government employee means she probably takes in “around $53,000 a year” (a number the poster took from a pay scale website). It’s certainly not nothing, but given all that Leslie’s able to finance, it does bring up some questions. The user pointed out that Leslie “buys and/or makes gifts for a lot of people for seemingly insignificant events,” (how could we forget the life-size replica of the Iron Throne she had commissioned in Season 6), that “she paid for the Recreation center classes to stay on” in Season 2, and that “she paid for at least April’s trip to London,” as well as “an elaborate trip for Ron that took him to Scotland.”

Sure, Leslie hand-crafts a lot of her most meaningful gifts, but the materials and wrapping alone would set her back a pretty penny, and she certainly doesn’t skimp on the quality, quantity, or extreme frequency of her gift-giving. What’s more, as the fan pointed out, Leslie likely funded the filling of the pit for Ann (Rashida Jones) on her own. “Filling the pit would cost $35,000,” they wrote, and after Leslie “tried all the bureaucratic channels to get funded for that project and failed,” she ultimately “hired someone to just fill it in instead.”
