Attention ‘Parks and Rec’ Fans: This Chrome Extension Translates the Internet into Tom Haverford-Speak

Any dedicated “Parks and Recreation” viewer knows that Aziz Ansari’s character, Tom Haverford, is a very special guy. So special, in fact, that he has his own vocabulary for food and other domestic household items. He calls forks “food rakes,” gum “chew chew train,” and lasagna — wait for it — “Lazy Gaga.”

Now there’s a Chrome extension that integrates all of Mr. Haverford’s lovable slang to your browser, automatically translating a list of specific words on any Web page to Tom-speak. Download it here, and watch the jokes roll in like a dessert cart.

Some examples of the extension’s magic, below:

Fro yo ma: not as healthy as you might think.

I actually wouldn’t put it past Guy Fieri to start calling pork “Notorious P.I.G.” in real life.

Mmm-mmm, delicious Fri Fri Chicky Chick.

Nothing like a great big ol’ cookie recipe from queen homemaker Martha Stewart.

And, finally, a meal is not complete without a refreshing glass of LL Cool Ade.

So: How do you like them teacher candies?
