Nick Offerman's Post-'Parks & Rec' Transformation Is Jaw-Dropping

Does life even have any meaning anymore?

The old saying goes, there are three constants in life: death, taxes and Nick Offerman's incredible mustache. Well, looks like death and taxes may not matter anymore, because Offerman's raw-masculinity-in-facial-hair-form 'stache is more gone than Amy Dunne.

Life, no joke, doesn't make sense anymore.

The transformation is so severe, in fact, that when MTV News interviewed Offerman at the Sundance Film Festival to support his new movie "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl," we did not recognize who he was until he started talking.

I don't mean this unkindly, but Offerman went from looking like the world's sexiest woodsman, to a still pretty sexy garden gnome, but a garden gnome nonetheless.

If there's a truer sign that "Parks and Recreation" is coming to an end in a few short weeks than the total disappearance of Ron Swanson's signature 'stache, we don't know what it is. R.I.P., mustache. You're in mustache heaven now, where mustaches are combed all day and waxed all night.

"Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is currently playing at the Sundance Film Festival.
