What sitcom character do you want to be if/when you grow up?
In my case, it would be "if." I was never good at staying between the lines, so I'll swerve out of the lane for a second. Although he is not technically involved in a sitcom, my choice begins and ends with The Tick.
Why The Tick, you ask? There is a laundry list of reasons:
- The Tick is nigh invulnerable. Whether he is burning up during a free fall re-entry from space, or having his head eaten by The Human Ton, The Tick cannot be stopped. Well, he can be hurt, but not exactly stopped.
- Like me, The Tick spends his days and nights fighting evil, protecting The City from the likes of Chairface Chippendale, El Seed, and The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs at Midnight.
- The Tick has a fabulous battle cry: "SPOON!"
- And finally, The Tick is always good for a sound bite. For example: "And so, may Evil beware and may Good dress warmly and eat plenty of fresh vegetables."
