When it comes to the other characters and people constantly saying that they are annoying, idiotic or worse than the Eds, look at the supporting characters you get in the Three Stooges. Some of them are just as annoying or stereotyped (in some cases, worse so). By the way, how on earth did those three manage to get assigned to a turret in WWII? For that matter, did they honestly expect them NOT to burn down the fire station when they got jobs there? And how did they become commanders in the army during the crusades? The point is, it's not supposed to make sense. It's just supposed to be silly.
So when you look at the characters in the cul de sac, you have to remember that they're just referencing the kind of personalities you'd see in the Three Stooges. It's just supposed to be silly and a little but dumb. That's just the way shows like that are.
If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.
