Today is National Grouch Day.  We took a Facebook poll of our Top 5 Favorite Grouches and here are the results, in no particular order:

1.  Louis De Palma from Taxi

2.  Red Forman from That 70's Show

3.  Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street:

4.  Archie Bunker from All in the Family

Momma from The Carol Burnett Show

I have to say, my favorite is Momma from The Carol Burnett Show.  I guess it's because Momma reminds me of my Grandmother.  I didn't know her very well, but I remember that she was a little prickly.  I wish I had known her before she was in the nursing home - I'm thinking that maybe she wouldn't have been so crabby, but man, when we went to go see her, she said things that would have come directly out of Vicki Lawrence's crabby character.
