He may be fat, balding and morbidly obese but apparently we all love Homer Simpson enough to see him voted as the best character from the past 20 years.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Homer tops the list of the 100 greatest characters from pop culture, and having gone through the list, we’re not so sure.

It’s a bit of a mess to be honest as Fight Club’s Tyler Durden clocks in at 76 but How I Met Your Mother’s Barney Stinson comes in at 56. Wha?

There are also characters in the list we bet most people have never heard of. If the average joe on the street can tell us what movie the character Jen Yu is from, we’ll eat our hats.

We won’t drag you through the entire 100 names – for that you can check out the official EW website, but we will give you the top 10.

10. SpongeBob SquarePants from SpongeBob SquarePants
9. Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City
8. Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs and its sequels

6. Rachel Green from Friends
5. The Joker from The Dark Knight
4. Tony Soprano from The Sopranos
