The big turkey in the Mr. Bean sketch.


Yes! And the old book at the library, the one he tears to pieces. Almost feels like it's not only a book, but a representation of "stiff, old, sacriligious customs".

Interesting point. Mr. Bean is in every sketch some sort of an anarchist...childlike and egoist...but always against social conventions.

What about that massive black dildo that hatchet harry killed someone with in lock stock. They should use one of those as the wireless mike at the next royal variety show.

Yes, a little bit like an autistic person, oblivious to others. The figure of Sheldon in the Big Bang Theory actually reminds me of Mr. Bean sometimes.

I suppose breaking social conventions makes for awkwardness and that social awkwardness equals laughing matter.

*edit, sorry, I strayed a little bit off topic here.

This is a cross between "best comedy prop" and sitcom "sitcom characters you never see":

Cassandra's urine sample which Albert confuses with apple juice.
