This was a fun post to write.
Among my friends, it was a pretty good debate as to who the champion might be.
Would Billy Madison still be fun once he graduated from teacher’s college?
Could it be Frodo? Or is Sam a better friend overall.
Chewbacca? A co-worker of mine summed up the Star Wars alum well:
“He’s got your back.”
How bad ass would it be if your best friend was Optimus Prime? Can you imagine piling into a vehicle on your way to the bars and he yells
Perhaps, the winner is Frank the Tank.
“I can see Blue… He looks glorious!”
At the same time, arguments can be made for Vince Vaughn’s Bernard as well.
While we’re on the topic… How about Wedding Crashers?
What about Stifler? Would he get annoying over time? Is E.L from Road Trip a better pick or is that just Stifler again?
On an obscure note, I’ve always been a fan of Jesse from Garden State. Who wouldn’t want a friend who’s filthy rich thanks to silent velcrow and bombs around mansions in golf carts.
Would you rather be friends with Marty Mcfly or Doc Brown? Marty would stay up later but what if the flux capacitor breaks down?
“Where we’re going we don’t need roads.”
Slater from Dazed and Confused?
Anyone from The Hangover? Mike Tyson as Mike Tyson from The Hangover?
What about Red from The Shawshank Redemption?
In the end, arguments can be made for all of these characters and thousands of others I probably overlooked.
Still, I’m pretty happy about my pick.
It’s hard to argue that a fantastic friend to have would be:
Van Wilder (who also drives a golf cart… ) would have been a blast to hang out with in college.
True, having Chewy around would be a fantastic conversation starter but I’m basing my opinion on someone from earth for the purposes of this post.
I think I’ve changed my mind…
Just looking at that Chewy pic of him pitching makes him the real winner here. How could you not want him as a friend?
Here it is again:
