Surly Duff is one of The Seven Duffs. Along with the rest of the group, Surly is a mascot for Duff Beer and appears as a costumed character in places such as Duff Gardens. However, Surly has also been seen out in public on occasion.

Biography[edit]

Surly is the only one of the Seven Duffs who speaks. True to his name, Surly has a surly and cynical demeanor. Everything he says either has a cynical undercurrent behind it or is a direct put-down:

  • "Hey, Surly only looks out for one guy ... Surly!"[1]
  • "Shut up."[1]
  • "Take a picture, it'll last longer. Get outta here!"[1]
  • While greeting people at the Duff Days beer festival, Surly says in a loud voice, "Drink Duff!" Then he covers his mouth with his hand and adds "Responsibly", in a much quieter voice.[2]

Surly has also been seen in public on occasions when he wasn't acting as a representative for Duff Beer. When Marge Simpson accidentally got breast implants, Surly was among a crowd of men leering at her enhanced figure.[3]

When Moe's Tavern was shut down for failing a health inspection, a wake was held for the bar and Surly was one of the mourners in attendance.[4]

Behind the Laughter[edit]

  • The Seven Duffs are an obvious reference to, and pun on, the Seven Dwarfs from the Disney animated movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
  • Surly is one of only four Duffs named in their first appearance in "Selma's Choice." (The other three named in the episode were Tipsy, Queasy and Remorseful.)
