Character Role Analysis

Mr. B and Bob

Come on. Could we get more different than these two? Bob sleeps all day. Mr. B works all the time. Bob cares about boobies. Mr. B cares about world hunger. Bob has a crush on the hot blonde. Mr. B has a crush on the quiet, scary, pale girl. Just a little different. Hardworking and caring Mr. B highlights just how lazy Bob is. At the same time, Bob's wild and crazy nature emphasizes how boring and unimaginative Mr. B is. They're a match made in heaven—or somewhere extraterrestrial.
