Emmys Comedy Actress Beauty Pageant Was Amy Poehler's Idea (VIDEO)

Parks and Rec Good Day LAAfter such a long summer, it's hard to believe that it's almost time to return to Pawnee, Ind. and catch up with the 'Parks and Recreation' gang.

Stars Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, otherwise known as Leslie Knope and Ron Effing Swanson, appeared on 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) ostensibly to preview Season 4 of the NBC show (premieres Thu., Sept. 22, 8:30PM ET), but they mostly talked about Poehler's hilarious bit at the Emmys on Sunday where the entire Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy category was turned into a beauty pageant.

Unsurprisingly, the entire thing was Poehler's idea (with an assist from fellow nominee Martha Plimpton). And although presenter Rob Lowe planned for it (he had a bouquet and a tiara ready for winner Melissa McCarthy), Poehler shared a fun fact about the actor (and 'Parks and Rec' costar) that you might not know: he carries that tiara everywhere. "To be fair, he does always carry a tiara in his pocket," Poehler joked.

Good luck with the crazy people who watch that revenge commercial fifty times an hour and them NOT murdering a LOT of people. I'm mild mannered and I already want to choke whoever made that commercial till they are dead, dead, dead cause someone has to pay, someone has to pay, someone has to pay. I NEVER WANT TO SEE THAT STUPID, INSIPID, IRRITATING show.

Oh yeah, did I forget to say, someone has to pay, someone has to pay, someone has to pay enough times? Just checking.
