Ladies and Gentlemen,

Heroes, Villains...sure we've discussed them, we've voted on them, we've had the gull to choose the best ones. However, we quickly forgot about the people who are integral to the organization. The behind the scenes, the second billings, the gophers, the people who hold the slow or stop signs before one lane construction. The right hands, the sidekicks, the person who does the insane bidding of another. Today we celebrate sidekicks as if it were administrative assistant day. Which I think is just another way of saying secretary day, and now that I think about it, what is a sanitation engineer? Why can't we just call stuff what it used be called? Why are we inventing all these names for stuff...what? Oh yeah...the game....anyways, vote on sidekicks...did we change the name for sidekicks yet? No? Okay then...vote on the best sidekicks.

General Rules/Guidelines:

1. One voting post per day. Two [++] upvotes for your favorite; Three [---] downvotes for your least favorite.
2. When a Sidekick reaches zero points, they will be eliminated.
3. The game will be called when we reach a top 5 list.
4. Conversations are highly encouraged, BUT you must play the game.
5. Suggestions to add Sidekicks are welcome, BUT you must to play the game.
6. The winner will receive a cake.

This list is pretty strong. Lots of characters that I like. Notice how most sidekicks have a lot of character? Less screen time, so, often exaggerated for effect. A quick glance through the list shows that most of these characters are more animated than the characters whose sides they kick.

I agree with you 100 %. There are a lot of strong characters on this list. Emma did a fantastic job. The game should be a lot of fun to play.

I got one, I got one (and I'd like to replace this for my earlier Boltie suggestion... I mean, it really doesn't make sense to have Boltie on the list and not Hit Girl; but I'm not serious about either: here's one I AM serious about...)

The Ladykillers - J.K. Simmons as Garth Pancake

Easiest thing in the world.
The one character in that lesser Coen film that could give the O Brother and Lebowski boys a run for their title. I seriously love J.K. in this role.

Of course... it's just a trial balloon.

I have just one complaint here, Em: could the winner receive a cake this time?

Who is baking? 

Full disclosure... I've given myself food poisoning three times... set the toaster on fire twice... set the microwave on fire three (maybe four... depends on the definition of fire) times.

Absolutely agree! I had more difficulty down voting in this first round than all of HERO combined!

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 4, 2012 4:45:17 PM PST
Hmm...

I suppose Jonathan and I could come up with something...

Traditional chocolate or ice cream cake?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 4, 2012 4:45:35 PM PST
It won't be me. I'm probably the only guy in the state of Indiana who has caught taco shells on fire.

Taco shells on fire?

Major props to you, good sir.

Hands down ice cream cake!!!!

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 4, 2012 4:55:42 PM PST
I'll place the order in around, say, 10 weeks.

Brother from a different mother! Taco shell on fire in Ohio here.

When the husband and I first moved in together, my father in law installed a fire extinguisher in the kitchen. Ye of little faith!

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 4, 2012 4:59:16 PM PST
I still, to this day, have no idea how I did it. I thought I might have left the cardboard that separates the shells in, but I check the trash and they were in there. The fire was little, but very energetic and bright.

I also have a fire extinguisher in the kitchen. I have no faith in myself. lol. I also have one in the laundry room cause I may or may not have set the dryer on fire.

Edit: I wish I was joking.

I've burned meself quite a few times in the past. I took a pizza several months ago out of the oven, and somehow the cookie sheet slipped right onto my forearm and onto the floor. Miraculously, the pizza landed perfectly on the sheet, so I still ate it. I am quite clumsy at times :)

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 4, 2012 5:07:48 PM PST
I have done that at time or two. I have one of those fancy fat boy cookie sheets that are real thick. Those things really leave a good burn when they hit your skin. But unfortunately for me, the pizza's were always lost.

They were a team. Did I emphasize the "were". No? Restart. They *were* a team. Cameron Frye, the woe is me rich kid who would not shut-up about his mate Ferris. Dr. Watson, the last of many, the worst of the lot. And J, the suit wearing-alien busting-rapper, always asking me to " just bounce it with me, just bounce with me, Just bounce it with me c'mon, Let me see ya just slide with me, just slide with me, Just slide with me c'mon, Let me see ya take a walk with me, just walk it with me, Take a walk with me c'mon, And make your neck work, Now freeze." Now Freeze!?! WTF is up with that!?!

Charles De Mar: "Greendale is a bodaciously small town, Lane. A fly speck on the map - a rest stop on the way to the ski slope. I can't even get real drugs here!"
Jim: " I must have killed more men than Cecil B. DeMille."
