Brick calling us "Slab" bugged me more. Claptrap being dumb and thinking we work for him was funny. Brick not being as dumb and thinking we work for him (and being right, but working for him isn't the same as joining his stupid bandit tribe) was less so.
Totally agree. Claptrap = funny. Brick = not funny. Tannis wasn't bad this time, but not as funny as the first game IMO. I kinda liked Lilith's personality in this one. Her and Roland's awkward relationship and all the bits you get to hear were kinda funny. The fire cult missions were pretty funny too. Jack was pretty hilarious all the way through for me. I would've liked to hear more about him working for Hyperion though. We get that one glimpse of him and his boss talking, but that was about it.
