'Parks & Rec' put Reggie Wayne/Colts tribute in Johnny Karate disclaimer

After seven seasons, Parks and Recreation is no more, wrapping up the series in heart-warming fashion on Tuesday night. We spent part of the weekend re-watching a couple of the final few episodes, including The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show, the third-to-last episode that focused on Chris Pratt (a.k.a. Andy Dwyer a.k.a. Burt Macklin a.k.a. Johnny Karate) and his final episode as a host of a popular children's show.

During said show, Aubrey Plaza (a.k.a. April Ludgate Karate-Dwyer) came out for a game of April's Animal Corner.

An animal got loose which means a really long disclaimer and because Mrs. Brinson and I like to slow down stuff like this and read it, we discovered that the writers gave a shoutout to Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne in the middle of some interrupted legalese.

So the funny part here is the disclaimer's messed up because Andy jumped onto his lawyer's computer while he wasn't looking and typed a bunch of stuff in a random paragraph of the document. 

Part of that involved the Colts, who Dwyer loves on the show. Parks has used the Colts before; Dwyer is a massive Reggie Wayne fan (see: above) and the show's incorporated both Wayne and Andrew Luck before. 

Oddly enough, Pratt's a huge Seattle fan in real life (and his Seahawks fanhood cost him this year in a charitable way).
