    Religion is rarely covered in poular entertainment, so who knows? There could be a plethora of JW characters in popular televison and movies, and we don't even know it!

    For example, what about Bill Lumberg (the boss) from the movie "Office Space?" From the way he talks down to people in such a nice way, he's got elder written all over him.


    "Yeah hi, Brother Gibbons. Haven't seen you out in service for awhile."

    "Yeah, I know. I guess I just-"

    "You know, we are living in the time of the End, and all those who don't have a full share in the ministry will be cut off. We wouldn't want that to happen now, would we! So if you could just go ahead and come out Saturday, that would be great, mmmkay? In fact, gonna have to ask you to come out Sunday, too, mmmkay? Gotta keep the congregation's numbers up. Thanks!"

    Oh my gawd, MungoBaobab, that was too damn funny!

    Flanders on the Simpsons is definitely a dubbie. And I think Hyacinth Bucket on Keeping up Appearances might be based on the P.O.'s wife in my last cong.

    Jesus, when I saw this thread I was thinking of Milton from Office Space. The first person that came up in my mind.

    Now that's one hell of a funny show!!

    Butters, from South Park, shows some signs of possible JWness.

    From my experience I"d say THE TERMINATOR

    I'd have to say the normal neighbors of the Addams family. They'd make perfect dubs.

    the guy played by Trey Parker in Orgasmo...made a pretty bad Mormon, but maybe he'd be a good JW!

    Napolean Dynamite. Could you imagine him showing up at your door?

    "Hello. I am, like, in the neighborhood talking about God and stuff. Do you want a magazine?"
    "Fine. You are, like, the dumbest pagan ever."

    Paige Davis from Trading Spaces. She's obnoxious. She's a dim-wit. She won't shut up!!
