The Top Ten

1 "Check Please" Guy

Just the most obnoxious, tactless, ludicrous human being imaginable. But that is his hilarious character. - PositronWildhawk

I remember the list of quotes you did of his in December. Have to vote for him. Hilarious! - Britgirl

2 Mr. "Everything Comes From India" Mr.

What he says all the time is absolutely ridiculous, but it wouldn't be any other way. - PositronWildhawk

3 Guru Maharishi Yogi Guru Maharishi Yogi

A man who lectures a load of made-up crap about spirituality. An example is retelling Star Wars from the perspective of ancient Sanskrit. Who'd have thought that that would be so funny? - PositronWildhawk

4 The Bhangra Muffins The Bhangra Muffins

They come across as school idiots at first, but a lot of what they say makes you think. - PositronWildhawk

5 Smita Smitten Smita Smitten

The ridiculous showbiz reporter who just appears at the most stupid "celeb spots". It's a lot funnier than it sounds. - PositronWildhawk

6 The Competitive Mothers The Competitive Mothers

I loved seeing them in the reunion special, as the competitive grandmothers! - PositronWildhawk

7 The Coopers The Coopers

Just two snobbish immigrants who try to be as overly British as possible. Very funny stuff. Dennis, is of course, the funniest. - PositronWildhawk

8 The Robinsons The Robinsons

A watered down version of the Coopers. - PositronWildhawk

9 Uncle Fixer Uncle Fixer

I can't really describe this. Just Mr. Mega-Awkward. - PositronWildhawk

10 Chunky Lafanga Chunky Lafanga

He is a big-shot Bollywood dancer who turns every classic of Western culture into a crazy musical. This, you all have to see. - PositronWildhawk
