February 3, 2011

"Parks and Recreation,"  the NBC comedy, in its 3rd season, ran an episode entitled "Time Capsule." The initial release of this episode was February 3, 2011. The star, Leslie Nopes, (Amy Poehler, born September 16, 1971) holds a public forum to decide what to place in a time capsule that the Parks department wants to create. From the audience an old man suggests the ashes of his cat be included in the capsule contents. The cats's name was Turnip. The meeting was so raucous, with other odd suggestions,  that the Parks and Recreation staff decide just to include a tape of this town hall meeting as the only item in the capsule.
