Totally the Wizard of Oz -- who else is the embodiment of Laziness, Impatience, and Hubris?

  • Laziness: sends others to do his dirty work. E.g. sends Dorothy and the gang on his mission.
  • Impatience: didn't have time to build a real emerald city, so he just makes everyone wear green-tint goggles. Sweet shortcut.
  • Hubris: the guy arrives in Oz and tells everyone he's a Wizard.

    Nice reply, I totally agree. I did vote for the Wizard of Oz without reading this, but I couldn't have stated the reasons so cleanly.
