Badass Boast: "Your tractors uprooted my tree. Your posse hunted my family. Your gunmen kidnapped my nephew. Your rat insulted my wife ó and you shot off my tail. Iím not leaving here without that necktie."
The Pig Pen: Not played for laughs. According to the narration, Bean never bathes ("he never even washed"), and he's hard of hearing because his ears are clogged with residue. (The other two are probably unhygienic too; Mr. Fox says in an early chapter that he can smell them so easily because they stunk.)
The Stoic: Boggis and Bunce, especially Bunce, whose sour expression never changes once.
Terrible Trio: They are played like, with Bean being the Big Bad, and Boggis and Bunce his sidekicks.
Trademark Favourite Food: Boggis - chicken; Bunce - homemade doughnuts with smashed up goose livers injected into them; Bean - strong alcoholic apple cider.
Villainous Glutton: All three farmers, but especially Boggis, who eats three chickens for every square meal of the day (plus dessert).
