C’mon–you just KNOW you can’t have too many lovable idiots to laugh about. Which is why April Fools continues today with a post from blogging superstar Table 9 Mutant of Cinema Parrot Disco! Yes, I did just declare her a “blogging superstar,” and I think anyone who has been paying attention to her John Hughes Blogathon would say the same. Definitely check out her blog, her blogathon, and her list of fools below!
My Five April Fools
5. Salacious B. Crumb
Love him or hate him, you certainly can’t miss Jabba The Hutt’s tiny court jester as he sits on Jabba & laughs maniacally at people’s misfortune. Okay – he’s actually a little bastard but I love the dude. And his name is awesome. And he’s just soooo Henson. 🙂
Favorite quote: “Aahhhhhhhhhhhhhh oooohooohooohoooohooohhooohhhhoooohhh!!!!”
4. Jeremy Hillary Boob Ph.D.
He’s an “eminent physicist, polyglot classicist, prize-winning botanist, hard-biting satirist, talented pianist, good dentist too”. He’s a real nowhere man and probably a genius but definitely a bit nutty so I think I can include him as an “April Fool”. Or… “April Boob”. And just LOOK at him – what IS he? God drugs were good in 60s…. (I assume – I wasn’t born yet).
Favorite quote: “Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!”
3. Cousin Eddie
We all have a relative like this, right? Right?? Well, maybe in America. You can’t help but love a fool like Eddie, who never realizes how much he’s annoying his poor relatives. He’s gloriously dumb but does try to do the right thing even though he clearly doesn’t think everything through first.
Favorite quote (obviously): “Shitter was full!”
2. Bill S. Preston, Esq. & Ted Theodore Logan
You can’t choose just one of these guys – they’re a pair and it’s hard to decide which one is the bigger fool. But it’s impossible to not like the two guys who think Joan of Arc is Noah’s wife and that the number 69 is hilarious. Plus they save the future of this world with their music (they do get better).
Favorite quote: “Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K” closely followed by “69, dudes!”
1. Garth Algar
Oh Garth – you’ll always be my biggest loveable idiot! Garth Algar – the guy who drives the Mirth-Mobile, does the “foxy lady” dance, pretends his doughnuts are murdering each other, can play the drums like a motherfucker, and has just gotten some pubes. So sweet & naive, Garth is someone I’d love to have as my sidekick sitting on the couch next to me in my basement. If I had a basement…
Favorite quote: “Ribbed for her pleasure. Ewww.”
Another lovely list! Garth seems to be a popular fellow, no? Thanks so much, Miss Mutant! More lists will be coming your way soon, buuuuut if all goes as planned I ought to have a review of a new movie for you tomorrow and then something else special on Monday…Stay tuned! 🙂
