FBI Uses 'Parks and Recreation' Finale to Recruit People

After the season finale of the NBC comedy, the FBI tweeted a backhanded compliment in bidding the show farewell.

The FBI is using Tuesday night's Parks and Recreation series finale as a recruitment tactic for its agency.

Following the finale, the FBI tweeted a farewell message to the show, and threw out a (backhand) compliment to Burt Tyrannosaurus Macklin, an alter ego of Andy Dwyer played by Chris Pratt.

In the finale, Pratt says, "Macklin, you son of a bitch" after he finds a clue in video footage.

Less than a day after the episode aired, the @FBI tweeted: "Your ways were unconventional, but you'll be missed Macklin. #ParksFarewell To learn about a real FBI career, visit http://www.FBIjobs.gov."

Apparently, Macklin's career is not "real" enough, but the FBI still hopes it will inspire people to work for the government agency.
