Comedy is one of those few things that seems like it will never hit the bottom of the barrel. As long as the world continues to spin, people will continue to come up with ways to keep everyone entertained through laughter.

Take Greg Larsen, for instance. The award-winning actor, writer, director, and comedian went to Twitter asking people to share names of those who are universally agreed to be evil. You know, people like genocidal dictators, serial killers, and just plain baddies, whether real or fictional.

This way, he challenged himself to defend them and their actions using “conservative logic.” And the internet delivered, bringing in nearly 80,000 likes and over 18,000 retweets, suggesting some of the seemingly most undefendable people (and non-humans) in history.

Bored Panda invites you to read through some of Greg’s best attempts at defending these baddies to the best of his “conservative” ability. And while you’re down there, why not vote and comment on the ones you enjoyed the most!

Back in August of 2020, Greg went to Twitter with a bit of a wild idea—he asked his followers to name the absolute most evil people on the planet—people like genocidal dictators, serial killers, and the like.

Don't do it man or 10 years down the road there'll be an internet group claiming this for real.

The internet was keen to respond immediately after this tweet went live. Now, many were posting actual historical figures, like Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, and Kim Jong Un, but others spiced it up, suggesting more than just politicians and infamous people in history.

The list quickly grew with the likes of Joffrey Baratheon from Game of Thrones, Immortan Joe from Mad Max, Bowser from the Mario universe, The Borg from Star Trek, and many more.

Yet others took a more comic approach and suggested defending the likes of Mr. Burns from The Simpsons, Wile E. Coyote from Road Runner, and Ursula from The Little Mermaid. There was even one person who put up a picture of Vegemite iSnack 2.0 and asked to defend the marketing guy who invented it.

It is indeed the planets fault for not being careful where to float, just like an automobile not looking at the road and crashing into a motorcycle.

This is actually the argument you hear from Manson worshipers and apologists today. Problem is you're still guilty of murder if you have someone else do it for you

He's (or was) actually considered a national hero in Romania if I'm not mistaken, for defending against the Ottoman Empire
