Comedian Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) gives viewers a tour of his “pizza farm” where trees grow pizza, fish fingers and taquitos (deep-fried tortillas with meat filling) in a public service announcement produced by the American Heart Association and Funny or Die, a website for comedy videos.

One of his most preposterous statements: “French fries are practically salads, which is why I like mine with ranch.”

The TV star’s spurious claims are supposed to mock the special interest groups pushing to repeal school lunch regulations promoted by First Lady Michelle Obama that require serving more fruits and vegetables and whole-grain-rich products as Congress considers whether to reauthorize them when they expire in September.
