Manuel

2016, you utter bastard. It’s not enough that you took several beloved performers to the grave this year, like a Balrog dragging Gandalf off into the dark. But just when we thought that December was going to be alright, comes news that one of the most beloved immigrants to ever work the desk at a hotel has sadly kicked. I am of course talking about Andrew Sachs, the beloved Manuel from Fawlty Towers. He was 86, to be fair.

A good-natured simpleton stuck working for a verbally (and sometimes physically) abusive boss, Manuel was basically my patron saint of learning to speak english gud and getting the job done. You’ll be missed Andrew Sachs, you will be missed indeed. Now pass me my brass knuckles as I prepare to go pay 2016 a visit.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
