If you are unaware of who Karl Pilkington, I highly suggest you catch up on the cynical, intriguing life of England’s finest average Joe. Shot to stardom as the subject of mates and sitcom writers Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, Karl is the most loveable, reluctant television celebrity you’ve probably encountered and he makes for some riveting and hilarious viewing. Now with a number of series under his belt, Karl took to Reddit, hosting an AMA to promote his new book More Moaning, which is all about his last lot of travels when filming Moaning of Life 2.

Below is a compiled list of the best things that Karl said in his hour-long AMA, from inspiring, to disgusting, yet all classic Karl. Check them out and then head to the full thread to see the entire conversation.

01. Life lessons Karl's learnt

“If you put your finger in and out of your ear it makes the sound that Pac Man makes when he’s eating.”

02. On recent physical deformities

“Just that story about the fella who’s gonna have his head put on a different body. Full respect if the surgeon pulls that one off. I’m chuffed if I manage to poach an egg without breaking it.”

03. If he ever drooled himself dry

“No. I got bored before I went dry. Tellin ya. I could water the garden with my goz.”

04. The Cincinnati Zoo incident

“It annoyed me that. There’s only about 700 gorillas in the world and yet there’s loads of kids.”

05. The current state of his relationship with Ricky Gervais

“We ain’t fallen out but I hardly ever see either of them. Doing the podcasts used to mean we had to meet up but since we knocked them on the head we’ve just been getting on with our own things. Can’t say I’ve missed them that much though to be honest. One of the last times I saw Ricky he farted on my head so I’m not in a rush to meet with him anytime soon. Steve sent me a photo of him the other day and he’s now totally bald! Not sure if he’s ill or he’s shaved it for a part in a film.”

06. The 2024 mission to Mars

“You wouldn’t get me going. Too much of a change for me that one. I can’t handle it when Suzanne buys whole milk instead of semi skinned.”
