A Tribute to Uncle Fester
Fester Addams, widely known as Uncle Fester, is the brother of Gomez Addams in The Addams Family cartoon and films (but Morticia’s uncle in the TV series). He’s an oddball character who can make a light bulb shine just by putting it in his mouth, enjoys tightening his head in a screw press for fun, and likes to blow things up. There’s really not much else to him. Now let’s appreciate the wonders that are Fester Addams.

“The Addams Family started,
When Uncle Fester farted,
They all became retarded,
The Addams Family!”
