Thursday Top Threes: crazies!

M: Top three favorite completely crazy characters.

1. The Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. Well, pretty much everyone in Wonderland is crazy but the Queen of Hearts with her "Off with their heads!" and flamingo/hedgehog croquet and people painting roses and just generally being terrified of her is one of my favorites.
2. The Cat in the Hat.
3. Gaius Baltar from Battlestar Galactica. Maybe in the end it turned out that he wasn't so crazy after all but with all his visions of Six, somehow becoming Vice President and then President, spending too much time on the Cylon baseship, leading a religious cult...yeah. Definitely crazy.

1. Mrs. Kim from Gilmore Girls. Perfect example of how crazy Koreans and Korean moms can be. :)
2. Along the same line as Jenn's pick of Alice and Wonderland, I'm going to say Willy Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
3. Sue on Glee. She's only really fun for me when she's being absolutely ridiculous on the show. Like when she married herself in a tracksuit wedding dress. Or when she went full Grinch with Becky as the reindog. In her moments of pure craziness, she's kind of brilliant!

1. Dwight Schrute from The Office.

2. Gollum/Smeagol from The Lord of the Rings. Even though he creeped the hell out of me, I thought the conversations between Gollum and Smeagol were hilarious.

3. Jamie Kelly of the "Dear Dumb Diary" series. I like her because i recognize some of my own crazy in her.

three new yorkers have answered and nobody said kramer? okay, i won't, either.

1) The Joker. whether you define crazy as insane or merely over-the-top, he qualifies.

2) Rorshach, from The Watchmen. original & fascinating.

3) House, from House. a non-comic book character :)
