He's like the real life equivalent of Charlie Kelly. Except he can actually read and write. Though I'm not even sure if that much is true.
I think you hit the nail on the head.
Yeah, like it took me a little bit to figure it out, but then everything suddenly lined up. The way he hasn't tried common, normal foods; the way he just says shit that literally no one else would ever say or think, right down to the inflection in his voice when he says it; the way his radically ill-informed views have skewed his perception of the world to a hilarious degree, and all of his bizarre little stories about his life...it all makes so much sense now! I'm totally convinced he is the best possible thing that could've happened to this site at this moment in time.
