Ned Flanders is Homer's neighbor and worst friend on The Simpsons.  Ned is a devout Christian and more or less a perfect human being.  Ned lost his wife to a freak NASCAR-related injury and is forced to raise his sons, Rod and Tod alone.  Ned has proven to be quite the eligible bachelor as a successful business owner (of the Leftorium) and in suprisingly good shape.
