Parks and Recreation is ending. That is literally the worst. During its seven season run, the NBC comedy managed to populate its fictional small-town setting with a host of endearing and hilarious characters. There are so many strange and funny residents walking the streets of Pawnee that it was hard to cut the best of the best down to 30. And that’s not even including the series regulars. If they made the show’s opening titles - Leslie, Ron, Tom, April, Andy, Ben, Ann, Chris, Mark, Donna or Jerry - then they are not on this list.

Oh, and since it’s only Pawneeans, that also excludes terrific supporting characters like Kathryn Hahn’s Jennifer Barkley, Patricia Clarkson’s Tammy 1, former Indiana Pacers small forward Detlef Schrempf, Peter Serafinowicz’ Your Royal Excellency Lord Edgar Darby Covington, 14th Earl of Cornwall-Upon-Thames, 19th Baron of Hertfordshire and the many, many political cameos. Now that all that bureaucracy is out of the way, here are the 30 funniest residents of Parks and Recreation’s Pawnee, Indiana...

30. Lawrence Gernway
Lawrence Gernway is one of Ann Perkins' neighbors and a vocal member of the community in the early seasons of Parks. Played by Eric Edelstein, his big moment outside of the public forums was a fight with Andy about how loud the latter was playing Mouse Rat while he was taking a bath in Ann's backyard. In a later episode, we find out that his last name is Gernway while Leslie is out on a date with his dad George. There are a lot of familial connections in the small-town. "Hey, park lady! You suck."

29. Kelly Larson
While some of the residents on the list are recurring like Lawrence, others, like Will Forte's Kelly Larson, are simply memorable guest spots. In the third episode of the third season, "Time Capsule," Kelly shows up at the Parks Department to demand that Stephenie Meyer's 'Twilight' be included in the titular time capsule. When his request is refused, he chains himself to a pipe in Leslie's office. “Hey Leslie, I'm making some sleepy-time tea. Do you want any?”
