Yeah, it’s Homer. I know you already read the headline, but I still wanted to make the post a little bit dramatic.
The deal is the Entertainment Weekly, the famous entertainment publication, compiled a list of the best television and film characters from the past 20 years. That’s a wise move: if you were to ask people to rank the best television and film characters of all time I’d probably have to vote for Ralph Kramden. Pretty much every single “silly” TV character is based on Kramden in some capacity.
Second place was Harry Potter and third was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Really, Buffy? Whatever, dudes…
My top 3 of the past 20 years (and this is pretty much just television, I’m not familiar with enough movies to rank movie characters):
1. Bender from Futurama
2. George Costanza from Seinfeld or Larry from Curb Your Enthusiasm (it’s basically the same character, both based on Larry David)
3. Stone Cold Steve Austin from WWE (I’d say Austin was a more interesting television character than The Rock, who was great for other reasons)
And I’m sorry, but that file photo is the funniest picture ever created. I always laugh at that.
