Special Occasion

Funny or Die's "The Occasional" features Nick Offerman

Some things you’ve been wondering lately:

– What do Nick Offerman and Paul Bunyan have in common?
– Do eight-year olds give good dating advice?
– How can my Flag Day be even sexier?

Here to kind of help is “The Occasional,” a digital magazine courtesy of the overstimulated minds behind FunnyOrDie.com.

After the site’s inaugural issue became the most downloaded bimonthly iPad magazine published by a viral video comedy site, the team thought, “Let’s go big.” And big they went.

First up, a cover story with Nick Offerman (best known as Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation) in which Nick creates a Paul Bunyan-like narrative for himself, complete with audio and visual aids.

After that, bolster your love life with dating advice from an eight-year old and tips from Megan Amram on how to get sexy for Flag Day. Finish things off with articles from The Onion and The Daily Show writers, plus interviews with a pair of hilarious Parks and Recreation writers.

And no fledgling publication would be complete without an insane subscription plea, though this one comes courtesy of L.A. Confidential author James Ellroy.

We have a feeling it will be quite persuasive.
