|Lori Petty as Tank Girl|
Why we love her: She drives a tank, has a huge potty mouth and always does so in style.
Fun Fact: Her first words were "cauliflower penis"
Tank girl had done a series of missions for a nebulous organization before she was declared an outlaw for making a serious mistake along with her past history of sexual inclinations with her Booga, a mutant kangaroo and substance abuse.
When she was 7, she started a collection of novelty pencil sharpeners (the collection is now housed in the National Museum of Modern Pencil Sharpeners, Sydney).
She later became a tank pilot and worked as a bounty hunter before shooting a heavily decorated officer, having mistaken him for her father, and failing to deliver colostomy bags to President Hogan, the incontinent Head of State in Australia, resulting in him publicly embarrassing himself at a large international trade conference. These events resulted in Tank Girl becoming an outlaw with a multi-million dollar bounty on her head.
"She is prone to random acts of sex and violence, hair dyeing, flatulence, nose-picking, vomiting, spitting, and more than occasional drunkenness. She also has the ability to outrun any ice cream van - even Mr. Whippy." (wikipedia)
The creator of Tank Hewlett also helped to creat the characters of Gorillaz with Blur's Damon Albarn
