Karl Pilkington, be my friend

Recently Lee and I have been watching a lot of Karl Pilkington on Youtube. We watched an Idiot Abroad at the beginning of the year as a I was a bit late to the party, what with not having Sky at home. We watched them all pretty much back to back. Then that was it, all went quiet on the Karl front until recently. We downloaded his travel diary for like 30p on the Kindle and it was a funny read, and for that price you can't complain! 

His quotes are amazing, him and Ricky Gervais make me laugh so much. I don't even like Ricky Gervais that much normally, in my opinion he's a bit of a self righteous knob. Someone posted this link on their Facebook and since that fateful night I can't stop watching him:

Here are a selection of some of Karl's best quotes from Pilkipedia:

"Woke up at 9.55am. Soon as I woke up, I looked at Suzanne and she looked at me. I said, "Did I tell you about the immune system?" Suzanne starting laughing, I said it's amazing. She said, "Not now."

"They say it all started out with a big bang. But, what I wonder is, was it a big bang or did it just seem big because there wasn't anything else drown it out at the time?" 

"I'd kick it, and I'd say 'You knob-head'." - Karl tells Ricky his response to being poisoned by an octopus

Anyone else love Karl? 
Who would you like to be your best pal?
