6 Overrated Characters in Fiction


1. Village girl from The Jungle Book: because Mowgli picks her over Baloo & Bagheera. Total BS, if you ask me. (I'll admit, she is kind of hot, but you can't just leave Baloo!)

2. The Ghost from The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: because you can't base an entire play (including Hamlet's endless fits of melancholy) on the ramblings of an old, possibly non-existent specter.

3. Harry Potter from the Harry Potter books: because it's really Ron & Hermione who do all the bloody work.

4. SpongeBob SquarePants: for being on every 8-year-old's pajamas and because he's f***ing annoying! 

5. James Bond: for being but a fantasy of all the slightly bald, slightly over-weight middle-aged men in England (and well, because he is really only as good as his gadgets)



6. Osama Bin Laden from The News and other boring shows: Quite self-explanatory, don't you think?

  2. Good call on Osama, since he's not fictional, or dead.

  6. Not as "good as his gadgets". See anything before Goldfinger, or even Casino Royale.

  9. @Anonymous Yeah no question there :) I don't think Baloo's breath smelled very pleasant, you know, with all the ant-eating and stuff.

  10. So, more MI6 fun facts for you folks: Accoriding to a tweet by The QI Elves, "In 2008 an MI6 officer was interviewed for The One Show. His moustache fell off halfway through."
