'Hoppy' Birthday wishes to Jeff Dunham who turns 50 today. The ventriloquist and stand up comic has been called "America's favorite comedian" and is the top-grossing standup act in North America. His introduction of Achmed the Dead Terrorist was ranked as the ninth most watched YouTube video at the time.

Dunham describes his characters  as 'politically incorrect, gratuitously insulting and ill tempered.'  Here's 6 of Dunham's alter egos.  Although I love all of the characters, I'd have to say Walter is my favorite.  Which is your? Vote for your favorite below.
