  3. I love Simple. He has an open and wondrous look. He comes from another planet, another dimension and is highly confused by the scrambling and gnashing that goes on here in this human realm. He watches it all with great amusement, trying to make some sense of it but he can't quite. He hopes someday someone will explain it to him but in the meantime he just whistles a happy tune (what else would you expect from one of the merry men!)
