Monday Morning Water Cooler Discussion

First of all yes, I do understand that it is currently Monday afternoon in much, if not all of the United States. As well, I am aware that this column is called the Monday Morning Water Cooler Discussion, but I was busy recovering from the awesome 24-Hour Sci-Fi Marathon that took place over the weekend here in Columbus — so get off me, you freaks.

The Dude from The Big LebowskiThis week’s topic is inspired by my good friend David Medsker and the pop culture attack squad over at, who unleashed their list of 13 Cinematic Stoners Whose Names Aren’t Harold or Kumar upon the world this morning. Their list (which is awesome) includes easy choices such as Smokey from Friday (played by Chris Tucker) and Jay and Silent Bob (played by Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith), but it also dives into some other, slightly less-notable greats such as Carl Spackler in Caddyshack (played by Bill Murray) and Floyd from True Romance (played by Brad Pitt).

My personal favorite stoner is, and will always be, The Dude from The Big Lebowski (played by Jeff Bridges). El Duderino doesn’t do much on-screen smoking, but you can tell that he’s puffed down a joint (or ten) in his day.

So what say you? Who is your all-time favorite cinematic stoner?
