Bob a reflection of Harry's personality? I know that's mentioned multiple times but it just doesn't seem true to me.  Where Bob is all sex fiend...interested in "boobs" and porn. Harry seems much too gentlemanly for that.

It's because he's a reflection of Harry at age 16.
Pew pew PEW!

Why is Bob the way he is and will we find out why he's hated so by the Fey
Jim mentioned that Bob takes on some of the personality of his "master" so when he came to Harry. Harry was about 16 years old.  Sooo that's why he's so smart alecky and into girls so much.  As for the Fey comment mentioned we will find out in later books.

ohhhh!   It does make more sense then... but you'd think Bob would change to be more what Harry & Butters are like now...especially since he passed from Harry to Butters then back to Harry and then back to Butters. Unless the psyche of men stay as they are at 16 and some just over ride it as they age with some common sense..     :P

IIRC according to Bob it's because first impressions tend to stick.

Makes sense.... Harry's Bob was able to override his 'evil' part that was influenced by Kemmler & perhaps Justin for many years. That took alot of will power.... just like Harry has had will power to keep his darker tendencies in check.

So Harry was into mass orgies, and is a ummm upper curves man?

I'm just going to assume he was considerably less restrained as a teenager and try not to think about it too much. Or assume Bob is worse than Harry ever was. Either works.

more like at 16 he wouldnt have said no if it was offered. If he's shy now its because of what happened to Elaine and Susan, which was when he was an adult.

and yes. he still is. Man mentions Molly's boobs at least once a book.
Yeah, but Germans and Hungarians don't pull people's theories out of their sockets when they're challenged.  Ducks are known to do that.
