I love characters who can run people in circles, and I’m really interested in anything–books, movies, video games–with characters like these. I’m not sure if I’m being clear, so here’s an example of what I mean, posted by sgolightly on a different thread in the Introductions section:
“I think all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary-thinking people in this country are fed up with being told they’re sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.”
“Matching Tie and Handkerchief.”
Two other examples are when Pinocchio confuses Prince Charming and doesn’t give away Shrek in Shrek 3, and Jack Sparrow just before he stole one of the ship (he confused two guards).
If you know any characters like these, I’d love to find out! Thanks!
