It was the Head of the Witches’ Council, Myrtle Snow, who claimed the title of the funniest “American Horror Story” character in the Reddit poll by securing 167 of its 397 total votes. In fact, it was a bit of a landslide victory for the character, with Evan Peters’ James March placing second with 125 votes. Meanwhile, in addition to the poll, “American Horror Story” fans also took the thread’s comments section to express their love for Myrtle.
“Myrtle Snow is the most iconic character from the show in my opinion,” wrote u/LeviiSamiss. “She has so many quotable lines.” Other fans chimed in with their favorite “Coven” and “Apocalypse” quotes, and Myrtle’s famous last words were among the most noteworthy. “If Myrtle doesn’t win, I will be APOPLECTIC,” added u/OnHodl, borrowing the character’s favorite word to describe her rage. The Redditor also edited their comment to add Liz Taylor (Denis O’Hare) as an honorable mention for the poll. Elsewhere, some users shared funny quotes from characters like March and Audrey Tindall, while others suggested who else should’ve been included in the poll. u/a-ma-ri, for instance, responded to the poll’s central question by writing, “It was cricket,” to which the thread’s OP replied, “no bc ur right.”
Previous threads on the subreddit have, notably, celebrated Leslie Jordan’s Cricket as one of the funniest characters on “American Horror Story.” In this poll, however, it was Myrtle Snow who reigned supreme.
