Press play above, y'all. It's time to cry.

Parks and Recreation, one of the greatest television comedies of all time, will be leaving us tonight. There are no words to adequately express how we feel about this NBC series, and that's saying something considering we're writers. Well, we play one on the Internet.

Even though the Pawnee crew will be saying goodbye tonight, there are ways to mourn and celebrate this show for the rest of time. And we're not talking about Netflix and/or syndication, though it's never a bad time to binge-watch Parks and Rec.

We're talking about things, you guys. Stuff to buy. Because in the immortal words of Tom Haverford: "Love fades away, but things? Things are forever."
