25 reasons why Ben Wyatt from Parks and Recreation is the best

10 of 26

17. Accounting Puns

When it comes to being a nerd, Ben Wyatt is the king of nerd jokes. Need proof? Well, look no further than his jokes about accounting. No really, he makes a tun of terrible accounting jokes throughout the series.

When he tries to get a job with an accounting firm, he makes a lame joke that they all love. From then on, Ben continually throws in random jokes and really it just shows how cute he is. Ben Wyatt is always an anxious, nerdy little ball of nerves but when someone wants to talk accounting with him, he just gets so happy and excited about it.

So seeing him say these dumb jokes is fun! Like “Call me Bond, Municipal Bond” or any other idiotic joke. He just thinks he’s being so funny and he’s really the only one who gets the joke. Or if someone else does, they don’t want to admit it.

But whether or not you like the jokes or not, it shows a sweet side to Ben that we didn’t see in those first few episodes. He’s nerdy and fun and those cute little jokes make him even more endearing to us all because really, he is a nerd’s dream.
