Who made these jokes: ALF or Hawkeye Pierce?

Which sarcastic Eighties character made you say, "Haaaaaa, you kill me!"

Two of the most sarcastic characters to crack us up in the Eighties were Hawkeye Pierce on M*A*S*H and that alien from Melmac ALF.

One was a pop culture-obsessed wise guy. The other a sardonic surgeon. 

Both had a lot of feelings about food. 

Think you can tell them apart just from the jokes they delivered on their shows? The laughs on this quiz just might surprise you!
  1. “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happy hour.”
  2. “Where I’m from, this is ludicrous. It’s like having a funeral for a hamburger.”
  3. “Putting humans in charge of the earth is the cosmic equivalence of letting Eddie Murphy direct.”
  4. “I told you the food here should not be taken internally.”
  5. “You know you're beautiful when he's angry.”
  6. “I can see your still one sandwich short of a picnic.”
  7. “Never let it be said I didn't do the least I could do.”
  8. "At first, I thought it was Santa Claus. Then it soon dawned on me, Santa probably wouldn't smell like cheap wine."
  9. “I’m reminded of a prayer he used to recite every night before going to bed, ‘And if I die before I wake, chicken-fry me like a steak.'”
  10. “I’m not sleeping, I’m inspecting the inside of my eyelids.”
  11. "'Because it's wrong.' Why don't we needlepoint that into a sampler!"
  12. “The instrument has yet to be devised that can test my indifference to that remark.”

9/12; tough quiz for me (never watched M*A*S*H) but still did well.

You got 12 out of 12 - You hit a groove there! You definitely know who to thank for all the laughs. I know my M*A*S*H so anything unrecognizable had to be ALF.

Only missed #11. Number 3 was WAY too easy seeing as how Eddie Murphy wasn't even a glimmer in his mother's eye during the Korean War. Hawkeye's humor is VERY Groucho Marxian and not that comparable to Alf. I didn't watch Alf that much but I know my M.A.S.H. trivia about, as well as my Seinfeld trivia, seeing as how I've seen every episode several times, yadda yadda yadda.
