That's because he needs alcohol to survive. There's no reason to have a poll, either, because Matt Groening said that Bender drinks more than Barney (if someone could find the article on the internet) and Barney obviously drinks more than Homer. Even now that he's 'sober', what with the relapses AKA continuity goofs.

Isn't getting drunk the whole point of drinking  alcohol in the first place? I mean, the only other thing it really does is destroy your liver.

I have to say Homer. Bender drinks alot, but he doesn't seem to match him. Also, Barney's been sober (inconsistently) since season 11's "Days of Wine and D'oh'ses".

Homer drinks a lot, but not as much any more. Barney quit drinking. I vote Bender. The drinking has no effect on him other than helping his fuel cells. The only time Bender gets drunk is when he doesn't drink.

Bender is the only one who actually needsto drink, so although it would be a close call with Barney, I would go with him.

It is obviously Bender. Bender is always drinking, Barney is merely always drunk (up until he sobered up, that is). Homer is a distant third.

You could have a drinking contest between Barney, Homer and Bender and Bender would win.  Barney and Homer are humans, so if they keep drinking they'd die of alcohol poisoning.  Bender is a robot and he could drink beer forever.

Barney, probably.

Remember that Barney (in seasons 1-10)is basically drinking CONSTANTLY.  As he said, if Moe never closed the bar, he'd never leave.

Bender drinks a lot (he has to after all) but he doesn't spend ALL his time doing that. He still goes on adventures with the crew and generally does other things.  It's probably close, but it seems like Barney would pull ahead simply because he's constantly drinking as opposed to just doing so on random occasions.

Homer's an alcoholic too, but still a distant third, even though he is seen drinking a lot.

Homer used to just be a light drinker, in my opinion, but starting with about season 11, he drank constantly, which is why I voted for him.

I'm not so sure about that. Barney spends most of his time nursing his beers at Moe's, is isn't always knocking them back. He does at times, but I would say that is not as often as Bender is shown to, as Barney's joke is that he is drunk, and the stupid things he does, where Bender's joke is that he drinks excessivly, something that isn't expected of robots.. Plus, Barney has lots of times when he isn't at Moe's, and isn't anywhere near drinking (all of this being pre-sober, of course).

    Bender, on the other hand, always has time to drink, even in the midst of all his adventures with his friends (really, anywhere he is, he has time to drink... underwater, in the midst of a revolution... it would be more than a little disturbing if he wasn't a robot. But, that's what makes him so unique), more often than not, a LOT of alcohol, often not just beer, but also various cocktails and wines, which have a higher alcohol content than beer does. As well, Bender can, and often does, down crazy amount of alcohol in a single gulp (an entire keg, six pack of champagne, three beers at once), so even if the instances of beer consumption are the same as Barney's, then the quantity of the alcohol consumed would be  more.

      Barney IS constantly drunk, which may be decieving. In Deep Space Homer, for example, Barney gets drunk from a single drink of non-alcoholic champagne... doesn't say much for how much he can drink before getting wasted. I would say that Barney doesn't drink nearly as much as he actually seems to, and Bender drinks more often, more excessively, and more powerful drinks than Barney does.

Good point.  It does seem Barney's more "addicted" then he is actually always drinking (hence hooking alcohol directly to his veins  big grin ).  Still, again it seems like Bender mostly just pulls out alcohol at random points when its neccasary for a joke(or in scenes where they're at the tv), where Barney is pretty much always associated with beer in some way.  But its probably close, to say the least.

Of course neither approaches Boris Yelstin levels.

I voted for Bender.  He needs to drinks, or his power cells won't work.  Barney doesn't need to drink, he could quit.

I think you may be missing the Point... if you have to drive, wouldn't it be better not to drink for one night, than to lose the ability to get drunk altogether?

 laff When I first read this thread title, I was thinking of the big purple dinosaur Barney. I was like, hey, Barney doesn't drink! ...or does he??? No, I guess he doesn't. But enough with the rambling, I think Bender most definitely drinks more. He needs to drink, being a robot, plus he drinks all the time (Barney and Homer generally only drink at Moe's or social gatherings, and occasionally Homer drinks at home). Bender constantly drinks - I'm going with Bender.

does anyone else think it was a bad move having a sober barney? he doesnt really seem funny anymore. I think Matt decided to do this because he wanted the character to be happy for the last couple of years but its much better to keep the miserable people miserable.

Yes, Barney sobering up for good was a terrible idea, and his character is pretty pointless now.  Sort of like if they had decided to make Bender drink mineral oil for the rest of the series.  Maybe they would have done that if Futurama had lasted for many more seasons.
