  1. Awesome! The first thoughts I had for other characters:

    -Nick Sobotka
    -Slim Charles

    maybe a few others as well... Brianna Barksdale? Holley and/or Crutchfield? Nerese Campbell? I mean, I suppose you could go indefinitely, those were just the first few names that popped into my head.

  2. These are so cool! BTW I love the cheese Idea!

  3. You people are never satisfied. I have given you 53 characters and one executive producer, and you still want more more more! I deliberately omitted Nick Sobotka because really, who cares? You don't care. When you saw him in season five yell out at Tommy Carcetti, you had the same reaction Tommy did. "Who's that?" And the answer Tommy received is the truth: nobody.
    Further, Cheese? Cheese? Quote Cheese, right now! What did Cheese say? You're Googling it, aren't you? He was just a guy in the background with a silly-looking hat.
    I caved with the Breaking Bad iotacon and added Skinny Pete, so legally, I don't have to also add Slim Charles. Look it up.
    I can name a bunch of random characters just as easily as the next bloke, but what's the point if you have to Google the character's name to figure out who it's supposed to be? Nobody remembers Holley and Crutchfield. You got those names off the HBO web site.
    Maybe you have a point with the Brianna Barksdale suggestion, but I can't add her for the same reason we can't make Puerto Rico the 51st state: it'll mess up the pattern of stars.
    That said, thanks all for your comments, compliments, and random minor character shout-outs. You are the reason I make iotacons, until I can come up with a better reason.

  4. wonderful, thanks!!!

  5. Please make this a t-shirt. I will buy five of them with cash money.

  6. great work and epic response to comments, Andy. LOL

  7. Cheese was one of my favorite characters! "You know who got the fattest asses AND the tightest pussies? Midgets, nigga."

  8. Okay Anonymous, I stand corrected. Cheese is pretty hilarious.

  9. are there prints of this i can purchase? this is fucking awesome

  10. are there prints of this that i would be able to purchase? this is great!

  11. I love how David Costabile (Thomas Klebanow on The Wire, Gale Boetticher on Breaking Bad) always looks angry. So uncharacteristic, but I dig it!

  12. So, yeah, about that t-shirt idea...

  13. Hi Anonymous. I'm working on the T-shirt and print/poster thing. Thanks for the suggestion

  14. Those who would like a poster or t shirt or mug of this image, please visit
